Gather around Nine-Nine family! Our beloved show about the 99th precinct is coming back for season 8! According to The Wrap, Brooklyn Nine-Nine has been renewed ahead of its season 7 premiere on Thursday, February 6th, which is an special hour-long episode. It will then move on over to it’s regularly scheduled time slot on February 13 at 8:30 p.m.
The renewal news comes as a welcome surprise and reminder that we could’ve NOT had this. Brooklyn Nine-Nine called FOX home once upon a time. It was cancelled by the network before NBC stepped in and saved the iconic show, to the joy of many Nine-Nine fans. Now we’re pushing forward into season 8 territory that will hopefully gives us more hard hitting episode, #Peraltiago goodness, and more of our found family at the Nine-Nine.
According to The Wrap Brooklyn Nine-Nine was the No. 1 “most-social” primetime comedy series on television in the 2018-19 season. Across Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram it garnered 9 million total interactions.
It makes sense. Brooklyn Nine-Nine is incredibly diverse and nuanced. It has people of color in positions of power with storylines that show they are more than the stereotypes people perceive them to have. It has more than one Latina, which breaks the curse of only one of a minority being on a show like they had to check off a box or something. Brooklyn Nine-Nine even has a gay Captain who is a person of color and married.
This is why Brooklyn Nine-Nine is so popular and why it’ll be sticking around for many years to come!
Brooklyn Nine-Nine stars Andy Samberg, Andre Braugher, Melissa Fumero, Stephanie Beatriz, Terry Crews, Joe Lo Truglio, Dirk Blocker, and Joel McKinnon Miller. It is executively produced by Dan Goor, Mike Schur (who we love to the moon and back) and Luke Del Tredici.
Brooklyn Nine-Nine returns February 6th at 8/7c on NBC.
