Brooklyn Nine-Nine just wrapped its fifth season, so what’s next? Recently, co-creator Dan Goor spoke with Deadline about the TV show’s future on NBC.
As reported earlier, NBC picked up the cop comedy for a sixth season after FOX cancelled it. The cast includes Andy Samberg, Andre Braugher, Terry Crews, Melissa Fumero, Joe Lo Truglio, Stephanie Beatriz, Chelsea Peretti, Joel McKinnon Miller, and Dirk Blocker.
Not to be crude, but when I got the actual phone call I was in the bathroom, which somewhat limited my reaction — physically. Emotionally, I was devastated — I love our cast and crew, I love making the show with them, and I love the show. That said, I was aware there was a distant chance that we’d be picked up by another platform and that kept me from feeling the full weight of the news. I was kind of in a weird state of shock, sadness, and more shock.”
Later, Goor said they haven’t even begun planning season six, but he has hopes for a bunch of celebrity cameos:
Honestly, we’ve been so busy recovering from the cancelation and renewal craziness that we haven’t started thinking about season 6, but hopefully, maybe, I’m praying, maybe, hopefully, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Sean Astin, Mark Hamill, Guillermo Del Toro, or Seth Meyers will guest star????”
What do you think? Are you a fan of Brooklyn Nine-Nine? Are you looking forward to the new season on NBC?
