The good news Brooklyn Nine-Nine fans have been anxiously waiting to hear has arrived. NBC breathed new life into the half-hour comedy after it was cancelled by Fox, and now it’s confirmed the first NBC season (season six overall) won’t be a one-and-done thing. Brooklyn Nine-Nine has been renewed for season seven which will air during the 2019-2020 season.
According to the network, season six has been averaging 3.9 million viewers. That’s a million more viewers than it averaged when season five aired on Fox.
The award-winning comedy was created by writers Dan Goor and Michael Schur. Goor, Schur, David Miner, and Luke Del Tredici serve as executive producers.
“It’s been one of our great joys as a network to give Brooklyn Nine-Nine a second life,” stated Lisa Katz and Tracey Pakosta, Co-Presidents of Scripted Programming, NBC Entertainment. “Cheers to Dan Goor, Mike Schur, Luke Del Tredici and David Miner, and our amazing cast and crew who each week turn New York’s finest into New York’s funniest.”
Season six airs on Thursdays at 9pm ET/PT.
The Season Six Plot:
“As the sixth season begins, Brooklyn Nine-Nine continues to follow the exploits of hilarious Det. Jake Peralta (Andy Samberg), his diverse, lovable colleagues and their more-serious-than-a-hunk-of-actual-granite boss, Capt. Holt (Andre Braugher), as they police the NYPD’s 99th precinct. The new season will also dive into the marital life of Jake and his new bride, the extremely type-A Sgt. Amy Santiago (Melissa Fumero), who were married in the season five finale.
Rounding out the ensemble are Holt’s next-in-command, Sgt. Terry Jeffords (Terry Crews), a muscle-bound human mountain who loves nothing more than his three little daughters, except for a fresh carton of full-fat yogurt. The man loves yogurt. Jake’s fellow detectives include his best friend and human puppy dog, Det. Charles Boyle (Joe Lo Truglio), and the incredibly secretive, tough-as-nails Det. Rosa Diaz (Stephanie Beatriz). Holt’s civilian assistant is Gina Linetti (Chelsea Peretti), the living embodiment of the “100” emoji. Also part of the Nine-Nine are veteran officers Det. Scully (Joel McKinnon Miller) and Det. Hitchcock (Dirk Blocker), whose only skill as police officers is their ability to make a passable pot of coffee.”
