Standing as an example of one of the best moves by a broadcast network in years after NBC saved the series (and renewing it for an eighth season in November 2019), Brooklyn Nine-Nine dropped its Season 7 trailer and it's looking bodaciously rad. Staged with a 1980's vibe, all that was missing were leg warmers and big hair. Jake Peralta (Andy Samberg) and recently demoted to beat cop Captain Holt (Andre Braugher) are back with a 'bad to the bone' swagger – taking criminals off the streets one "big bad" at a time.
Last season, viewers were left with the cliffhanger of Holt being placed on patrol duty after it was discovered he didn't complete some of his training. Our team was finally able to take down Commissioner Kelly (Phil Reeves) for using illegal tactics to decrease crime rates. With a new commissioner on board (Kyra Sedgwick's Wuntch), and a new captain in tow (Nicole Bildersback) at the Nine-Nine, how will the team adjust to the the changes?
The show is set to return on Thursday, February 6, with back-to-back episodes showcasing what looks like Halt trying desperately to adjust to his new role. Degraded, stripped of all self-esteem and respect – even his pup thinks he's pathetic. So what will Holt think of his new partner, Fogel (Vanessa Bayer)? How long will he continue to wear street clothes, and more important: how difficult will Peralta make his life?
Hyped to veg out, kick back, and enjoy the new season of NBC's Brooklyn Nine-Nine – stay tuned for our season-long reviews starting next month!
As the sixth season begins, "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" continues to follow the exploits of hilarious Det. Jake Peralta (Andy Samberg), his diverse, lovable colleagues and their more-serious-than-a-hunk-of-actual-granite boss, Capt. Holt (Andre Braugher), as they police the NYPD's 99th precinct. The new season will also dive into the marital life of Jake and his new bride, the extremely type-A Sgt. Amy Santiago (Melissa Fumero), who were married in the season five finale.
Rounding out the ensemble are Holt's next-in-command, Sgt. Terry Jeffords (Terry Crews), a muscle-bound human mountain who loves nothing more than his three little daughters, except for a fresh carton of full-fat yogurt. The man loves yogurt. Jake's fellow detectives include his best friend and human puppy dog, Det. Charles Boyle (Joe Lo Truglio), and the incredibly secretive, tough-as-nails Det. Rosa Diaz (Stephanie Beatriz). Holt's civilian assistant is Gina Linetti (Chelsea Peretti), the living embodiment of the "100" emoji. Also part of the Nine-Nine are veteran officers Det. Scully (Joel McKinnon Miller) and Det. Hitchcock (Dirk Blocker), whose only skill as police officers is their ability to make a passable pot of coffee.
