There are those who commit crimes and there are those who stop them — enter the Brooklyn Nine-Nine police precinct. Here to protect and serve, while making your laugh.
Via Twitter, NBC, the series’ new syndication network, released a Law&Order inspired teaser for the infamously renewed series. Season 6 of Brooklyn Nine-Nine airs 9 p.m. Thursdays on January 10th.
Created by the Parks and Recreation duo Dan Goor and Michael Schur, the cult cop comedy followed screwball Detective Jake Peralta (Andy Samberg), as he tries to navigate the ups and downs of being a good cop.
The 99th precinct’s captain (Raymond Holt) is played in glorious deadpan fashion by actor Andre Braugher who attained three Emmy nominations for Supporting Actor from 2014-16. Actors and comedians Chelsea Peretti, Melissa Fumero, Terry Crews, Stephanie Beatriz, Joe Lo Truglio, and Joel McKinnon Miller round out the supporting cast.
Originally produced as a comedy for Fox, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, was the last remaining comedic series stronghold for the network from an outside studio, such as Universal TV.
It maintained its spot as highest-rated live-action comedy series on Fox during the series’ last season with a 1.3 adults 18-49 Live+7 rating, versus other network’s recently cancelled series such as LA to Vegas, The Last Man On Earth and The Mick (all at 1.2). Although, the shenanigans of 99th precinct never really garnered a wide audience for the former network.
Yet, despite strange scheduling moves and blocks, Brooklyn Nine-Nine maintained consistent viewership and ratings. After a prolonged hiatus, the show returned to its former 8:30 PM Sunday slot before its cancellation.
