The show had a number of potential landing sites for a revival, including TBS (which owned the show's syndication rights) and streaming services Hulu and Netflix. Deadline reported on Thursday evening that Hulu was the frontrunner, but those hopes were dashed when TV Line reported on Friday that Hulu had backed off from the idea.

"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," Robert Greenblatt, NBC Entertainment chairman told The Hollywood Reporter shortly after the news broke. "Mike Schur, Dan Goor and Andy Samberg grew up on NBC and we're all thrilled that one of the smartest, funniest, and best cast comedies in a long time will take its place in our comedy line-up. I speak for everyone at NBC, here's to the Nine-Nine!"
