Hulu, Netflix and TBS were also said to be among those outlets who talked with Universal TV after the cancellation. One day later, a potential revival looked bleak after Hulu — which retains SVOD rights to Brooklyn — and Netflix both passed on a potential sixth season.
In a statement, Robert Greenblatt, NBC Entertainment chairman spoke about the excitement surrounding the show’s revival:
“Ever since we sold this show to Fox I’ve regretted letting it get away, and it’s high time it came back to its rightful home.
