Brooklyn Nine-Nine renewed for an eighth season at NBC
Brooklyn Nine-Nine continues to live on with Deadline bringing word that NBC has officially renewed its fan-favorite sitcom for an eighth season. The announcement comes ahead of the upcoming hour-long premiere of Brooklyn Nine-Nine season 7 which is scheduled to premiere next year on February 6. In addition, a new video has also been released featuring the cast’s first reaction to the renewal which you can check out below.
Detective Jake Peralta (Andy Samberg), 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 stars Andy Samberg, 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.
Last year, Fox suddenly canceled the hit sitcom but was fortunately given a second chance when NBC immediately picked up the show for originally a 13-episode sixth season before ordering an additional five episodes to bring the episode order up to 18. Brooklyn Nine-Nine’s sixth season premiered on January 10 on NBC and has been a big success for the network and series, the premiere garnering the best ratings since the second season’s premiere.
