Cool, Cool, Cool — ‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine’ Gets the Season 8 Renewal Fans Are Thirsty For
It’s the day Brooklyn Nine-Nine fans have been waiting for. Season 8 of the has comedy has officially been confirmed before the start of season 7. Noice! Here’s what we know so far.
When does season 7 of ‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine’ air?
The TV gods continue smiling on the cast of Brooklyn Nine-Nine. After its Fox cancellation, then NBC resurrection, it’s the show that has nine lives and counting (and for good reason).
While a show’s typical season premiere is in the fall, around September, the Nine-Nine precinct gets a mid-season start. It’s set to air Feb. 6, at 8 p.m. with a one-hour premiere before the usual half-hour schedule at 8:30 p.m. on Feb. 13. The show gifts fans with 13 “toit” episodes.
After Fox nixed the show, it went on to perform a successful sixth season, for its first time on NBC. The May 2019 finale set up season 7 with the discovery of an illegal wiretap because, of course, and Captain Holt demoted to patrol officer.
In the words of Jake Peralta, “cool, cool, cool, cool, no doubt, no doubt, no doubt.”
Who returns for season 8 of ‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine’?
So far, it looks like the whole gang returns for season 8. Andy Samberg, Andre Braugher, Terry Crews, Melissa Fumero, Stephanie Beatriz, Joe Lo Truglio, Dirk Blocker, and Joel McKinnon Miller are back for more shenanigans and obligatory “heists.”
Deadline reported Brooklyn Nine-Nine was “last season’s #1 most-social primetime comedy series across television, earning 9 million total interactions.”
Why Andy Samberg almost passed on the role of Jake Peralta
It’s hard to believe now, but Samberg almost missed out on the chance to play one of Brooklyn’s finest. In 2012, he announced that, after seven years on Saturday Night Live, he was leaving.
Because of how much work it took to be part of SNL, Samberg felt ready to walk away from TV to pursue movies, according to Screen Rant. He almost didn’t accept the role on Brookly Nine-Nine with thoughts of another grueling schedule plaguing his mind.
Creators Michael Shur and Dan Goor inspired Samberg to take a chance, considering the path they helped former SNL star, Amy Pohler, create with Parks and Recreation.
Samberg told The Wrap in 2013 that taking the part of Jake Peralta “was too good to pass up,” so he accepted the offer. The show is responsible for Samberg’s Golden Globe win. As for now, you get at least two more seasons to look forward to.
In the words of Rosa Diaz (Stephanie Beatriz), “Anyone over the age of six celebrating a birthday should go to hell.” She didn’t say anything about season renewals, so celebrate away.
