Brooklyn Nine-Nine season 6 has started production at NBC
Production has officially started for Brooklyn Nine-Nine season 6. The ensemble police comedy was canceled earlier this year by Fox after its fifth season. The streaming service Hulu briefly considered picking up the show but decided to pass. NBC picked up the series as a midseason replacement, with 13 episodes to air sometime in the 2018-2019 season.
Now, the Twitter account for The Lonely Island (the band that includes star Andy Samberg) has announced that production on their upcoming sixth season is officially underway.
Detective Jake Peralta, a talented and carefree cop with the best arrest record, has never had to follow the rules too closely or work very hard. That changes when Ray Holt, a man with a lot to prove, becomes the new commanding officer of Brooklyn’s 99th precinct. As Holt reminds Peralta to respect the badge, an extremely competitive colleague — Detective Amy Santiago — starts to close in on the hotshot cop’s arrest record. Other members of the precinct include Sgt. Terry Jeffords, a devoted family man, Detective Charles Boyle, a hard worker who idolizes Jake, and Rosa Diaz, a sexy-yet-intimidating detective. Civilian office manager Gina Linetti is tasked with cleaning up everyone’s mess, while somehow getting involved in everyone’s business.
Brooklyn Nine-Nine also stars Andre Braugher, Terry Crews, Melissa Fumero, Stephanie Beatriz, Joe Lo Truglio, Chelsea Peretti, Dirk Blocker, and Joel McKinnon Miller. It was created, written, and executive produced by Dan Goor (Parks and Recreation) and Michael Schur (The Good Place), and produced by Universal Television, 3 Arts Entertainment, Fremulon, and Dr. Goor Productions. Goor, Schur, David Miner, and Luke Del Tredici serve as executive producers.
