Last Man on Earth has officially shown its last episode on Earth, as Fox has canceled the show after four seasons.

But nearly as soon as Fox announced the cancellation, several other networks expressed interest in picking the show up.

"Brooklyn Nine-Nine's" demise is being particularly mourned by viewers, who hailed the comedy for its diverse cast, which included characters from the LGBTQ community.

Meanwhile, critics, stars and fans of the show have been voicing their concern on Twitter, including Mark Hamill and Lin-Manuel Miranda from the famed musical Hamilton, making it the #1 Trending Topic on Twitter. "THIS IS ONE OF THE THINGS #RenewB99".

Audiences have broken out in outrage this Thursday as Fox has now confirmed that the network will be canceling the continuation of the fan favorite "Brooklyn Nine-Nine".

"The Mick", fronted by "Always Sunny's" Kaitlin Olson was off to a strong start previous year, but the network opted not to give the show a third season.

The show was created by Parks and Recreation creators Dan Goor and Michael Schur. Brooklyn Nine-Nine also reached its 100 milestone in Season 5 so the cast were optimistic to surpass that.

Finally, Fox has canceled "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" after five seasons.

Numerous fans are thanking the show for its proper representation.

The show was never a ratings hit, but earned five Emmy nominations during its run, including two for Forte's performance.

Because fans are both angry and sad over Fox's decision, they are reportedly urging streaming services Netflix and Hulu to save the sitcom, People reports.

The ratings for the show weren't great, but the critical reception was off the charts.
