Comic-Con 2018: BROOKLYN NINE-NINE Gets Post-Revival Love

Brooklyn Nine-Nine cancellation


The mood was celebratory as the cast and creative team BROOKLYN NINE-NINE celebrated the show’s move from Fox to NBC during the show’s Comic-Con panel. (The panelists got a standing ovation from the crowd!)

The immediate outcry after the show’s cancellation “was so validating in that moment,” series star Melissa Fumero (Amy) said.

“We started talking to each other, and it was immense sadness,” Terry Crews (Terry) said. “It feels like when your family is split up and you know you may not see each other again.”

But the show was quickly snapped up by NBC, and the writers’ room is already open. “We are five weeks into our pre-production,” Dan Goor said.  “Spoiler alert: I think the season is going to be good.”

Details were scarce about what’s ahead, but one thing is for certain: newlyweds Jake (Andy Samberg) and Amy are solid. “I think the beauty of Jake and Amy is they really are friends,” Samberg said. “It opens it up to stories that have to do with [just married] Jake and Amy.”

“I’m excited to see them join their bank accounts,” Fumero joked.

The team is also hoping that Gina Rodriguez will return to the show in season 6. However, “she is a super successful, super busy actress of a show of her own,” Goor noted. “We are trying to do that. She is trying to do that.”

Stephanie Beatriz, whose character came out as bisexual last season, applauded the show and its inclusiveness. “It was a gift,” Beatriz, who is bisexual herself, said. “I think we did it in an amazing way. We’re tackling these issues that aren’t really issues and are things we’re dealing with in our own lives…I was very thrilled to be asked to have a voice in that storyline.”

Elsewhere, “there’s a fun Hitchcock and Scully episode coming up,” Goor teased. “You may see bits of their past.”

But most importantly, the team is just happy to have more time together. “I get choked up thinking about these guys a lot, because I want to see them win, as if they were my own family,” Crews said.

And they’re so grateful to the fans: “Thank all of you for all of your support online and watching the show,” Goor concluded. “I really don’t think we’d be up here if it wasn’t for that.”
