NBC has announced that it has renewed Brooklyn Nine-Nine for a seventh season overall and second on the network after it ran for five seasons on Fox. The season is set to hit the small screen in the 2019-2020 season.
Lisa Katz and Tracey Pakosta, co-presidents of scripted programming at NBC Entertainment, said Wednesday in a statement
“It’s been one of our great joys as a network to give Brooklyn Nine-Nine a second life. Cheers to [executive producers] 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.”
The show’s cast learned of the renewal Wednesday at a table read for an upcoming episode.
The renewal of Brooklyn Nine-Nine comes a day after NBC also picked up all three of its Chicago dramas. The Michael Schur-produced The Good Place, Will & Grace and TV’s latest medical drama, New Amsterdam will also return in 2019-20.
Fox infamously canceled Brooklyn Nine-Nine last May as part of a channel wide purge of all of its live-action comedies at the end of the 2017-18 season. NBC then announced that it had picked up the series within 36 hours and placed it in midseason.
