NBC has recently announced that Brooklyn Nine-Nine has been renewed for a seventh season! Brookyln Nine-Nine was originally cancelled by Fox at the end of Season 5 but was then saved NBC for Season 6 and now, Season 7.
The show was originally picked up for a 13-episode season but NBC has decided to up that number to 18, probably due to popular demand. The show returns with its original cast, including Andy Samberg, Stephanie Beatriz, Terry Crews, Melissa Fumero, Joe Lo Truglio, Chelsea Peretti, and Andre Braugher. Although Chelsea Peretti, who plays fan-favorite Gina Lanetti, has made an emotional exit in the early part of Season 5.
“It’s been one of our great joys as a network to give ‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine’ a second life,” said Lisa Katz and Tracey Pakosta, Co-Presidents of Scripted Programming, NBC Entertainment. “Cheers to Dan Goor, Mike Schur, Luke Del Tredici and David Miner, and our amazing cast and crew who each week turn New York’s finest into New York’s funniest.”
The show has a huge fanbase and when the news about its cancellation was made public, a lot of people showed their disapproval online. Popular personalities such as Lin-Manuel Miranda, Mark Hamill, Seth Meyers, Guillermo del Toro, and Sean Astin have all made their voices heard in the attempts to renew the show.
After celebrating the renewal of Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Miranda announced the five celebrities had formed a group chat to obsess over the show together.
Speaking of Lin Manuel Miranda, the Hamilton creator and star is also set to guest star as Amy Santiago’s brother, David Santiago, in an upcoming episode that is scheduled to air on March 7, 2019.
