With less than a month to go for the premiere of Brooklyn Nine-Nine's sixth season, anticipation is building up about how each character's individual plot is about to pan out. Putting aside the frustrating cliffhangers that the preceding fifth season left us with, there's also the new involvement of NBC since they picked up the show just a day after it was abruptly canceled by Fox earlier in 2018.
With the new year on the horizon, the show also has a new home, and something tells us 'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' is finally on the network it was always meant to be in. For starters, NBC is a storehouse of talent when it comes to some of the most hilarious comedies the contemporary world has seen.
Apart from harboring the most popular comedies of yesteryear, such as 'The Office', 'Parks and Recreation', '30 Rock', and even 'Friends', the network is also credited with newer additions to its list of stellar comedies such as 'The Good Place,' and 'Community.'
This means one thing - if you're looking for wholesome content without any latent tone of offense - your go-to forum is NBC. The network is evergreen and even more widely popular for its late-night talk shows, such as 'The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon', and 'Late Night with Seth Meyers', which has only established its firm grounding when it comes to spectacular comedy.
The fact that it allows creative license to bloom like no other network is proven by the timeless show 'Saturday Night Live,' which despite being extremely critical and controversial at times, is on its 44th season on NBC. So, it's not for nothing that the network decided to pick up yet another stellar comedy such as 'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' after fan outrage worldwide over the show's cancellation managed to get rave attention on social media.
The best thing about 'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' so far has been the show's potential when it comes to giving viewers a hearty laugh by joking on issues very relatable to the modern world, without being offensive in the least.
And, that's significant because 'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' has emerged as one of the very few shows that revolves around the struggles of a predominantly white world, but with two of the lead characters being black men (Andre Braugher and Terry Crews) and two of its strongest female leads being Latina women (Melissa Fumero and Stephanie Beatriz). What's even better? They are all detectives!
While there's ample representation for people of color, there's also a white man (Joe Lo Truglio) indulging in his effeminate lifestyle without a smidge of hesitation, and another white man (Andy Samberg), who even though the lead, has evolved as a commendable character it gives one hope for humanity.
Even when the main cast can be seen acting mildly offensive, the show beautifully pans out with plots where the other characters subtly reprimand them and thus further their development. It is this wonderful aspect of the show that has us convinced there would be no better home for 'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' than NBC.
Free from the constraints of the Fox network, there's ample scope for the show and its characters to be fully unfiltered, so we can look forward to finally witnessing the f-word sprinkled around here and there in the dialogues. And the thought of Captain Raymond Holt (Braugher) and newly promoted Sargeant Amy Santiago (Fumero) giving in to their frustrations and finally swearing like a pirate has fans thriving.
Granted the show was always owned by NBC Universal, and the network themselves announced that there won't be any 'substantive changes' in the show owing to the shift, Samberg assured earlier this year (video above) that some 'bleeps and blurs' here and there could be expected in the upcoming season.
He also mentioned he is "looking forward to returning to that" since it's "basically everything (he) did at SNL." But other than that, season six will mostly be about our favorite, hilarious detectives from the 99th precincts going about their pre-existing plots as of now and it all sounds very exciting!
