Brooklyn Nine-Nine fans were subject to torment earlier this year. It was announced that the show would be canceled and it was really sad. The fans were in mourning because of the announcement. However, Fox changed it the next day. Just after a day of the news about the show being canceled, Fox confirmed that it would be getting a new season. The outrage of the fans was justified, and the show would have been taken up by some other giant such as Hulu or Netflix. But, NBC was quickest to react and confirm the renewal of the show for another season.
NBC’S Chairman, Robert Greenblatt said, “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. 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.”
We haven’t received any word on the release date of the new season. However what we do know is that the new season won’t be coming out this year; this might be a bit saddening but, it’s better than the show getting canceled. We can expect the show to come out in early 2019. For UK fans, the wait will be longer to see the show. The filming began on August 20.
The new season brings some bad news for the fans regarding the episode count. The sixth season will just have 13 episodes which are less than older seasons which had 22 or 23 episodes.
Even though NBC rescued the show, it wasn’t without some (slight) bad news. It was confirmed that season six would only be 13 episodes long, compared to previous seasons which have always been 22 or 23 episodes long.
The worry is that the shortened episode run is because it’s planned as a final season to wrap up the stories of the characters, especially since there are rumors that this might be the final season of the series. Now coming to the cast, most of the cast will be reprising their roles for the sixth season —
Andy Samberg as Jake Peralta
Stephanie Beatriz as Rosa Diaz
Terry Crews as Terry Jeffords
Melissa Fumero as Amy Santiago
Joe Lo Truglio as Charles Boyle
Chelsea Peretti as Gina Linetti
Andre Braugher as Raymond Holt
Dirk Blocker as Michael Hitchcock
Joel McKinnon Miller as Norm Scully
That’s all for now, we will be back with more news and updates on Brooklyn Nine Nine Season 6.
