NBC announced it has renewed the NYPD workplace comedy for its seventh season. It will be the second season to air on the network after Fox dropped the series in 2018.
“It’s been one of our great joys as a network to give ‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine’ a second life,” said NBC Entertainment’s co-presidents of scripted programming, Lisa Katz and Tracey Pakosta, in a statement. “Cheers to Dan Goor, Mike Schur, Luke Del Tredici and David Miner, and our amazing cast and crew who each week turn New York’s finest into New York’s funniest.”
NBC picked up ‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine’ the day after it was cancelled by Fox.
“I have two texts in a row from people a few hours apart where they go, ‘Dude, I’m so sorry,’ to, ‘Never mind, congratulations,’” series star and executive producer Andy Samberg told The Times.
In addition to Samberg, the show’s season six cast includes Melissa Fumero, Stephanie Beatriz, Terry Crews, Joe Lo Truglio, Andre Braugher, Dirk Blocker and Joel McKinnon Miller.
Season six premiered on January 10, and the series so far is averaging 1.4 rating in adults 18-49 and 3.9 million viewers overall in live plus seven days, which is up compared with the numbers at this point last year on Fox.
According to NBC, ‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine’ is one of its strongest digital performers with 45 per cent of its key demo audience derived from non-linear sources.
