Last night, Brooklyn Nine-Nine returned to the small screen at the new network of NBC. Here was a network that responded to fan outcry and gave them what they needed in their moment of need. Not 24 hours after the show was canceled by FOX, they came in gave them a 13-episode order (an order that’s already been increased by a handful of episodes).
We’re now living in a world where Brooklyn Nine-Nine, as great as it is, is kind of living on borrowed time. So what is the future of this show? Can we really expect it to live beyond this short Season 6? Honestly, that’s completely up in the air and likely up to the fans. Nothing is a sure thing in Hollywood, and the show’s lead Andy Samberg made that point perfectly clear when speaking to EW.
“I can’t really tell. We’re coming back midseason, so there’s a lot of question marks. I will say we’re all still really loving making it, and that the episodes still feel really funny and interesting and exciting to us. It’s a huge testament to the writers; they’re doing such an incredible job. The sort of renewed feeling of interest from the outside world, and the fan base of the show, and this sort of big surge of attention the show’s getting on social media, that’s really exciting. It does feel like the show was well-received right out of the gate, and we were super-grateful for that, but it feels like it hit a second gear after this whole renewal thing, and the move to NBC. We’ll see how that manifests in terms of what it’s worth to the people paying to make it. But as far as we’re concerned, the fact that there’s people out there that are still excited about the show and letting us know that makes us feel a lot more excited to keep making it.”
Hopefully, this excitement is something that has lasting appeal with fans. I know we talk a lot about how much we love things, but if it doesn’t actually show up in the numbers, it doesn’t do them a lot of good.
Do you think we’ll be getting a seventh season when all said and done? Let us know your thoughts down below!
