NBC Renews ‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine’ For An 8th Season
‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine‘ will continue, as US network NBC announces an early renewal for the cop comedy which sees it return for an 8th Season.
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 armfuls of Golden Globes, Emmys, and Critics’ Choice Television Awards.
Since NBC made the smart decision of rescuing the show from cancellation by Fox in 2018, it has been killing it for its new home. Last season the comedy averaged a 1.2 rating and 3.2 million viewers overall in “live plus same day” Nielsens for a total-viewer increase of +15% versus the prior season on Fox. After 35 days of linear and digital delayed viewing, the show last season grew to a 3.1 rating in 18-49 and 6.4 million viewers overall, with 59% of that 18-49 rating coming from nonlinear sources – the #1 biggest digital percentage for an NBC series last season. It also does extremely well online with social media, and was last season’s #1 most-social primetime comedy series across television, earning 9 million total interactions for the network.
The series is produced by Universal Television, a division of NBCUniversal Content Studios, Fremulon, Dr. Goor Productions and 3 Arts Entertainment.
‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine‘ airs on E4 in the UK, with Season 7 expected to premiere in early 2020.
