The Detectives on the 99th precinct will be busting New York’s finest criminals for at least one more year as Brooklyn 99 has been renewed for a seventh season by NBC. The Andy Samberg led police comedy was cancelled by Fox after five seasons, much to the disappointed of its fanbase, but was quickly given new life over at NBC.
The show was set to become another victim of the cancelled before its time category before it was saved by NBC, and the move has paid off for NBC as the show’s ratings are higher than its final season on Fox, as well as being a strong digital performer.
Lisa Katz and Tracey Pakosta, Co-Presidents of Scripted Programming, NBC Entertainment:
“It’s been one of our great joys as a network to give Brooklyn Nine-Nine a second life. 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.”
I am glad to hear this, as I am a fan of the show. It’s not like the funny cop bit hasn’t been done before, but Samberg and the rest of the crew put their own spin on it, and making it seven seasons is an accomplishment for any show.
