“The Last Man on Earth” and “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” have officially been renewed for new seasons in the 2016-17 lineup by FOX, the network announced Thursday. “Last Man on Earth” will be entering into its third season with this renewal, while “Nine-Nine” will be starting its fourth.

“We’re so proud of these comedies. Each has its own unique voice, but they both boast terrific ensembles with stand-out characters and, of course, phenomenal writing, which are the hallmarks of all great comedies,” said David Madden, FOX Entertainment president.

“We’d like to thank the executive producers, casts and crews of ‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine’ and ‘The Last Man on Earth’ for their tremendous work this season, and look forward to what’s in store next year,” he adds.

Both shows have been solid ratings performers for the network this season. No other half-hour comedy on the network has been renewed for the 2016-17 season as of yet.
