Now this is how you head into the new year: with an eighth season renewal. That's exactly the position Brooklyn Nine-Nine found itself in – and what made the news even more satisfying? NBC's official greenlight came nearly three months before the series drops its seventh season (with back-to-back episodes on Thursday, February 6) – and here's a look at the moment the team found out they'd be back for another season-long shift:

Andy Samberg, Melissa Fumero, Andre Braugher, Joe Lo Truglio, Terry Crews, and Stephanie Beatriz welcome viewers back to the precinct and offer a first-look at the changes they can expect:
"Brooklyn Nine-Nine" season 7, episode 1 "Manhunter": Jake leads a manhunt after an assassination attempt on a city councilor. Holt adjusts to his new position as a uniformed officer.
"Brooklyn Nine-Nine" season 7, episode 2 "Captain Kim": A new captain at the Nine-Nine attempts to ingratiate herself with Jake and the squad by inviting them over to her house for a dinner party.
"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.
