‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine’ Season 6 Gets Additional Order Taking It To 18 Episodes
Some good news for ‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine‘ fans landed over the weekend. Season 6 of the beloved comedy will be longer than expected.
Back in May, Fox decided to cancel the show during the annual UpFronts Bloodbath. However, NBC almost immediately stepped in and rescued the series with a 13-episode order. Now it has been announced that run will be extended to 18-episodes.
‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine’ is produced by NBC’s sister company Universal TV, and at the time of the pickup Robert Greenblatt, Chairman, NBC Entertainment commented “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. I speak for everyone at NBC, here’s to the Nine-Nine!”
Created by the ‘Parks and Rec’ pairing of Dan Goor and Michael Schur ‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine’ stars Andy Samberg as Det. Jake Peralta, a talented but carefree detective at Brooklyn’s 99th Precinct. Andre Braugher plays the Holt, captain of the precinct, whilst Terry Crews plays Holt’s next-in-command – a muscle-bound human mountain who loves nothing more than his three little daughters, except for a fresh carton of full-fat yoghurt. Since it’s debut on September 2013, the show has won Golden Globes, Emmys, and Critics’ Choice Television Awards.
‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine‘ usually airs early in the new year on E4 in the UK, although last season it didn’t start until April. It’s too early for official scheduling from E4, but we’d expect it to return at some point in the first few months of 2019.
