SDCC 2018: ‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine’ is Revived & Ready for NBC!

When real-life guardian angel NBC stepped in amongst the outrage of fans everywhere to save Brooklyn Nine-Nine from cancellation, a collective cool, cool, cool, cool, cool was heard around the world and everything was right in the television world again. Thankfully, the cast and creators of Nine-Nine made their way to San Diego Comic-Con to talk all about the show and just what lies ahead for our favorite detectives, sergeants, commissioners, and corgis!

Moderated by Mike Schneider, the room was packed to the brim with ecstatic fans, creating an atmosphere of pure joy and happiness. He kicked things off with a Nine-Nine!? and the whole audience responded. It gave me chills.

Andy Samberg, Melissa Fumero, Terry Crews, Stephanie Beatriz, Joe Lo Truglio, Chelsea Peretti, Dirk Blocker and Joel McKinnon Miller, showrunner Dan Goor and executive producer Luke Del Tredici were welcomed with a booming applause standing ovation by the crowd and it was just so pure.

Of course, one of the main points of discussion was the series’ cancellation at Fox, which led to an uproar on social media, leading NBC to save the series.

Things did get a little political when discussing Fox, but Samberg said that it was a good time for them to make the switch being that they are such an inclusive series.

Samberg also touched on how the comedy handles mental health issues.

Beatriz and Fumero had an emotional moment when a fan thanked them for their latina representation on the show.

The cast also said what their ideal final episode would have been had the series not been saved.

The “title of your sex tape jokes” were abundant.

Joe Lo Truglio talked about how Boyle is a male character who is super tapped into his emotions ant that is someone who isn’t seen on television much.

So, what can fans expect in the new season 6? Probably the return of fan-favorite guest star Doug Judy (Craig Robinson).

And a Scully and Hitchcock centered episode:

They also talked about diving into Jake and Amy’s marriage as well as Diaz’s bisexual storyline in season 6.

Speaking of Diaz, Goor revealed that when she came out it was the first time someone had done so on network television.

And it ended the only way it knew how.

Basically, the panel was a giant hug for an hour straight and showed just how much this series meant to fans.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine will return for season 6 on NBC!
