The Nine-Nine is back, baby! Finally settled into its new home on NBC, Brooklyn Nine-Nine is officially on the calendar for the midseason. So, with your arms wide open prepare to welcome Jake, Charles, Amy, and the gang back on Thursday, January 10th at 9/8c. The series will be bumping Will & Grace back to the Thursday night/9:30 pm time slot.
Just before Halloween, we got our first teaser for the upcoming season and while it was short, it definitely got us excited! Like, Jake talking about Die Hard excited.
The teaser seemed to address season five’s minor cliffhanger, which found Captain Holt revealing to the squad whether or not he was promoted to police commissioner. While the rest of the team sits around with sullen expressions, Jake is dancing all around Holt in classic Jake fashion. Could Holt have been passed over for the job?
It may be on a different network but Brooklyn Nine-Nine is staying the same.
During the panel creator, Dan Goor eased any worries fans might have about NBC wanting to change the sitcom up for their network, saying they don’t want them to make any “substantial changes” to the show. He also said that he and Andy Samberg go way back with the network and “they have our back.” Also, the theme song will stay the same!
The Halloween Heist will be back.
By far one of the best episodes of every season is the Halloween Heist! While it may be tough to top season 5’s engagement between Jake and Amy, the writing staff is sure going to try! “We have a very good idea for how to do the Halloween Heist,” Goor said.
The series will continue to explore Rosa’s sexuality.
Fans fell in love with Rosa’s bisexual storyline over Nine-Nine’s recent seasons and Goor said they’re ready to dive even deeper into all of it, including “Rosa’s interactions with her parents and her journey in coming out.”
They also want to tackle a Me Too episode.
Last season’s racial profiling episode “Moo Moo” was heavy, but it was handled in the gentle and heartfelt nature fans would expect Nine-Nine to. “Our challenge is to make them feel true to the show and funny, but at the same time give weight to the issue and really explore it in a fair way,” Goor said before saying they hoped to tackle the #metoo movement, but want to make sure they do it well.
Jake and Amy will continue to be adorable.
The pair got married in the season 5 finale, so fans are left wondering what’s next? “Mostly just, I think, really small, detail-oriented stories about their finances,” Samberg joked.
Are you ready for Brooklyn Nine-Nine to come back? Be sure to tune in and watch on January 10th at 9/8c so the show can live on forever at NBC!
Having studied Media & Writing at James Madison University, I always knew that I wanted to do some type of creative writing, but being able to write about zombies, Starks, and superheroes on a daily basis for Fan Fest is my actual dream. While I probably shouldn’t be as proud as I am to be so similar to Nick Miller, I do hope to one day write my own “Pepperwood Chronicles’.
