Feb. 28 (UPI) — The cop comedy “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” is scheduled to return for a seventh season in 2019-20, NBC announced Wednesday.
“It’s been one of our great joys as a network to give ‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine’ a second life,” Lisa Katz and Tracey Pakosta, co-presidents of scripted programming for NBC Entertainment, said in a statement. “Cheers to (executive producers) 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.”
The network picked up the sitcom when Fox canceled it after five seasons. The show stars Andy Samberg, Andre Braugher, Melissa Fumero, Terry Crews, Joe Lo Truglio and Stephanie Beatriz.
