Brooklyn Nine-Nine is back in 2019 at a new home on NBC - here's all you need to know about the premiere date, new airtime and story. The show was canceled by Fox at the end of the 2017/18 season after five years on the air but, after just a day of panic, NBC saved the series, picking it up for a sixth season.
Now, the adventures of Jake Peralta (Andy Samberg), Amy Santiago (Melissa Fumero), Charles Boyle (Joe Lo Truglio), Rosa Diaz (Stephanie Beatriz), Terry (Terry Cruz) and Captain Holt (Andre Brauer) will continue into 2019 and beyond on the new network. The NBC era of the show promises more of the same (albeit with a slightly shorter episode run of 18, instead of the standard 22).
With the return to the 99th precinct fast approaching, here's everything you need to know about Brooklyn Nine-Nine season 6, from when to watch it to the story twists to expect.
Brooklyn Nine-Nine Season 6 Premiere Date And NBC Time Slot
Brooklyn Nine-Nine season 6 premieres on NBC on Thursday, January 10, the start of a reduced 18-episode run. The show has an enviable timeslot, with new episodes airing at 9/8c (a time it held sporadically at Fox).
Brooklyn Nine-Nine will run for the rest of the season in the same time slot (although make take weeks out for certain events, as is usual for network TV shows).
Where Brooklyn Nine-Nine Season 5 Left Off
Brooklyn Nine-Nine has always had a deft mix of standalone episodes and background character developments. Last year, this centered on Holt's campaign to become police commissioner and its complications with mobster Seamus Murphy, and then Jack and Amy's wedding. Brooklyn Nine-Nine season 5 ended with the couple getting married (albeit outside the precinct after their original venue was subject to a bomb threat) and Holt finding out whether he'd been made commissioner or not (but not revealing it to the team).
What To Expect In Brooklyn Nine-Nine Season 6
Brooklyn Nine-Nine season 6 will immediately have to deal with Holt's future and the potential changes him being made commissioner could mean. Longer term, Jake and Amy will have to deal with being newly-weds and continuing as colleagues.
Bigger changes are coming to the Nine-Nine later in the season, however. Chelsea Peretti announced in October that she was leaving the show, with Gina's final episode set to be part of season 6. Little is known about the context of her departure but it's sure to be one of the biggest events in Brooklyn Nine-Nine's history.
Now the only question is who won 2018's Halloween gambit between Peralta and Holt...
