NBC today gave the order for Brooklyn Nine-Nine Season 7! The sixth season debuted on the network on January 10th and consists of 18 episodes. NBC picked up the series after it was canceled by FOX last year.
This season, Brooklyn Nine-Nine has averaged a 1.4 rating in adults 18-49 and 3.9 million viewers overall in “live plus seven day” Nielsens, an increase of 8% in 18-49 rating and 34% or 1.0 million persons in total viewers versus its average at this point last season on Fox (1.3 in 18-49, 2.9 million viewers). Brooklyn Nine-Nine is one of the strongest digital performers on the NBC schedule, deriving 45% of its “live plus seven day plus digital” rating in adults 18-49 from non-linear sources, the highest percentage among NBC shows.
“It’s been one of our great joys as a network to give ‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine’ a second life,” said Lisa Katz and Tracey Pakosta, Co-Presidents of Scripted Programming, NBC Entertainment. “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.”
In its fifth season, Brooklyn Nine-Nine followed the exploits of the hilarious Detective Jake Peralta (Andy Samberg), his diverse, lovable colleagues and their more-serious-than-a-hunk-of-actual-granite boss, Captain Holt (Andre Braugher), as they policed the NYPD’s 99th precinct. The series celebrated two major milestones this season – it filmed its 99th episode and the season finale featured the long-awaited wedding of Jake and Amy (Melissa Fumero).
Rounding out the ensemble are Holt’s next-in-command, Sergeant 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. Amy Santiago is Jake’s fiancée who recently became a Sergeant. Jake’s fellow detectives include his best friend and human puppy-dog, Detective Charles Boyle (Joe Lo Truglio), and the incredibly secretive, tough-as-nails Detective 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 Detective Scully (Joel McKinnon Miller) and Detective Hitchcock (Dirk Blocker), whose only skill as police officers is their ability to make a passable pot of coffee.
Brooklyn Nine-Nine is produced by Universal Television, 3 Arts Entertainment, Fremulon and Dr. Goor Productions. The series was created by Dan Goor and Michael Schur. The series is executive produced by Goor, Schur, David Miner and Luke Del Tredici.
