Brooklyn Nine-Nine Gets Additional Episode Order

The show may not be airing until mid-season but fans can already expect more of it.

NBC today announced that it is giving the comedy an additional 5 episodes for its 6th season. That brings the grand total of episodes up to 18.

For those unaware, the comedy was axed by Fox during this years upfronts after 5 years at the Network. A call to arms went out with Hulu among those rejecting the chance to take the show on, and at the eleventh hour it was revealed that NBC had decided to resurrect the show for a 6th season.

Created by the Parks and Recreation duo of Dan Goor and Michael Schur, who are former college roommates, Brooklyn Nine-Nine centers on Peralta, played by Saturday Night Live alum Samberg, a screwball who happens to be a real good cop. His captain in the NYPD’s 99th Precinct is Raymond Holt, a seen-it-all and emotion-challenged captain played by Andre Braugher, who scored three consecutive Emmy noms for Supporting Actor from 2014-2016. Terry Crews, Melissa Fumero, Joe Lo Truglio, Stephanie Beatriz, Chelsea Peretti, Joel McKinnon Miller and Dirk Blocker also star.

Michael Schur, Dan Goor, David Miner and Luke Del Tredici executive produce.
