It’s official, the famous Brooklyn Nine-Nine will return for an eighth season. The news was announced in basically the nicest possible way, with the official Instagram account sharing the moment the cast was told they’d be coming back next year.
As with so much else right now, this is a difficult question to answer. So much depends on when productions can start up again, with all networks currently on shutdown. We won’t be able to guess when the series will air until the restrictions have lifted.
And the lockdown will have an effect not just on the shooting schedule for Brooklyn Nine-Nine’s airing, it’ll have an impact on the plot – the show’s set in one of the worst hit areas in the world, New York.
You can expect Jake and Amy’s baby to play a big role in season eight’s shenanigans.
“We’re very conscious, similarly to when we coupled them up, that this is a workplace show,” Goor said.
“While we like doing comedy about them as a romantic item, or as a married couple, or [now] as parents, we primarily do comedy about them working together.”
“Hopefully we’ll be able to strike a similar balance, and I think we’ll be conscious of the fact that they have a kid.”
He added: “I think it’s an interesting element to have both Jake and Amy be working people who have to figure out how to balance the career they love with being good parents, which is what they want to be.”
Yes, we can’t wait!
Who will be in season 9?
Brooklyn Nine-Nine stars Andy Samberg as immature police detective Jake Peralta, alongside a superb ensemble including Melissa Fumero (Amy Santiago), Terry Crews (Terry Jeffords), Stephanie Beatriz (Rosa Diaz), and Andre Braugher as the intimidating Captain Holt.
If you were missing Chelsea Peretti in season seven, don’t worry. season eight’s going to fix that.
“The only regret I have with having 13 [episodes for season seven] is that we didn’t figure out a Gina episode, and I want to make sure that she’s in season eight. I love Chelsea Peretti. I think she’s one of the funniest human beings in the world, and I love the character of Gina Linetti,” Goor told.
When will we see the B99 trailer?
No trailer yet, and we don’t expect to see one for quite a long time. You can console yourself by binging every episode Netflix has while you wait, it’s what we’re going to be doing.
