'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' season 7 drops today
Brooklyn Nine-Nine is one of the best-loved sitcoms airing on TV today, and the police-procedural comedy has ended up accruing a devoted fanbase over the last six seasons.
Set in the 99th Precinct of the NYPD, the show revolves around a unit of detectives. The smart but rebelliously immature DT Jake, whose relaxed attitude towards his job often makes him butt heads with his stoic chief Raymond Holt and the other equally-quirky castmembers.
Fans have eagerly been anticipating the return of the show, and if you're one of those people then I have good news for you. Brooklyn Nine-Nine returns to our screens today!
Although we still don't know what kind of storylines or character arcs we can expect to see in the upcoming season, we do know for a fact that season seven will consist of a mere 13 episodes (as opposed to 22 /23) this time around. This is a result of the production channel-hopping from the Fox network to NBC when Fox canceled the show after season five.
In a recent interview with Jimmy Fallon, Andy Samberg told the host that he's been lobbying for a major Hollywood actor to guest star in the series for some time. Samberg stated: "My character is obsessed with Die Hard, so we’ve long said that getting Bruce Willy would be like a huge thing."
He added: "I mean, I’ve appeared many times for this. I think maybe he’s like waiting for the end to surprise us and shock the world, or, he hates me. I love him."
Take a look at the weird eighties-themed trailer for season seven:
Samberg first made his pitch to Willis back in 2018, in an interview with Entertainment Tonight, where he stated: "If you had it in your schedule to breeze by for one shot, I think it would mean a lot to the show, to the fan base, to fans of Die Hard who’ve picked up on how much the show loves the movie."
Brooklyn Nine-Nine season seven premieres on NBC on Thursday, February 6, at 8 pm eastern and 7 pm central.
