Jake Peralta riffs on Die Hard in the Brooklyn Nine-Nine season 6 trailer
To celebrate the return of Brooklyn Nine-Nine after its cancellation last spring by Fox, then its resurrection by NBC shortly thereafter, the squad New York’s finest get an action-packed trailer that openly pays homage to the 1988 Christmas movie/action spectacle Die Hard. You can check out the trailer in the post 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.
Brooklyn Nine-Nine’s sixth season will premiere on January 10, 2019, on NBC.
