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.

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.

During San Diego Comic-Con, the cast revealed that they would love more than anything for Gina Rodriguez to come back to the show as a potential love interest for Rosa, seeing that the two totally hit it off in the finale. “We are in conversations with her…She is the star of a television show and super-successful in Hollywood.”

Season 5’s interrogation episode focusing solely on Jake and Holt’s relationship and featuring Sterling K. Brown (for which he received a guest-star Emmy nomination) was so beloved by the cast and writers that they are hoping to do something similar in season 6. During the panel Andrew Braugher (Captain Holt) reflected on just how much fun the episode was to film and he loved how the writers were able to tap into Jake and Holt’s father/son dynamic. “These guys just have a gift for translating a serious subject in a comedic way.”

They 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.

What’s next for Jake and Amy?

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.

Since Brooklyn Nine-Nine will be a midseason series for NBC, season 6 doesn’t have a premiere date yet, but the cast just got together today for their first table read!
