Brooklyn Nine-Nine is returning for Season 7

On Feb. 27, 2019, the announcement was made: Brooklyn Nine-Nine Season 7 is happening. This news comes after just seven episodes of Season 6 have aired, out of 18 total. In fact, the cast is still filming Season 6 right now. Though the timing may seem a bit unusual, most series for the 2019-2020 TV season will be hearing about renewals and cancellations over the next couple of months.

The series has had its ups and downs

Chances are, the network wanted to reassure the Brooklyn Nine-Nine cast and crew that it is still on their side. After all, a lot has happened with the series, especially over the past year.

In May 2018, the series, which had aired for five seasons on Fox, was canceled by the network. But within 24 hours, NBC had announced that it would be picking the sitcom up for a sixth season, beginning midseason. The initial order was for 13 episodes, but this was later extended to 18.

Here’s how they made the announcement

Instead of the usual announcement at the TCAs or in a standard press release, the network had some fun with its announcement. A video released on Feb. 27, 2019 shows an executive telling the cast at a table read, “You know how happy and proud we were to have you on NBC this season, and we’re even happier to say that we would love to have you back next season…” The rest of her sentence was cut off by the room erupting in cheers.

This is what the cast and crew had to say

As you can see in the video above, everyone was extremely pleased with this news. Several members of the cast and crew also took to Twitter to share their joy with the world.

Stephanie Beatriz, who plays Rosa, wrote a simple message, saying that “season 7 is a GO.” The actress is having a pretty great week when it comes to Brooklyn Nine-Nine: She also directed the Feb. 28, 2019 episode “He Said, She Said.”

Melissa Fumero and Andy Samberg play husband and wife co-workers Amy and Jake, and it appears that they also share tweets. After Fumero tweeted that Samberg joked to her back on their first day that the series could run seven seasons, Samberg quote tweeted her, adding “I wasn’t joking!” It looks like his confidence in the series, of which he’s also a producer, was well founded.

Hitchcock and Scully also chimed in, in their usual fashion. Dirk Blocker and Joel McKinnon Miller excitedly shared their own reactions to the renewal news.

Captain Holt just joined Twitter

Captain Raymond Holt, the extremely serious leader of the 99th precinct, isn’t exactly like the actor who portrays him. But Andre Braugher, like Holt, hasn’t had much of a social media presence — that is, until recently. He joined Twitter just one day before the announcement, so his second tweet ever was about the renewal. It looks like we’re in for plenty more Braugher tweets about the show in the year to come.
