Prepare to shout nine-nine as loud as you can as NBC is bringing Brooklyn Nine-Nine back for another season. We still have three months to wait before Jake and the gang return for season seven, but NBC has handed out an early renewal for the Andy Samberg led comedy.
NBC picked up the acclaimed sitcom last year after Fox opted to cancel the show after five seasons. Fans weren't happy with the unexpected cancellation and took to social media to help find the series a new home. As it turns out, NBC was already keen on snapping up Brooklyn's finest, and the fan support only confirmed their decision. Less than 24 hours after Fox axed it, Brooklyn Nine-Nine had laned on a new network. Quickly joining the ranks of Parks and Recreation, and The Good Place (both from Nine-Nine co-creator Michael Schur) as one of the best modern comedy ensembles, fans were thrilled to have the show saved.
NBC initially ordered 13 episodes for season six in its new midseason slot in January, but they swiftly added five extra episodes. A smart move as the Nine-Nine enjoyed a massive bump in viewership nearly doubling the audience that season five received on Fox. The shift in scheduling likely aided to ratings bump, but NBC fully got behind promoting the new season. Early renewals are always a strong sign of confidence from a network, and it's excellent news that there are many more adventures from the Nine-Nine to come. NBC is losing two big sitcoms this season with the Will & Grace revival and The Good Place coming to an end. So having Brooklyn Nine-Nine around for another year can only be a good thing for everybody. Season seven is due to start on NBV February 6, UK fans can catch it on E4 sometime in the Spring.
