Brooklyn Nine-Nine season 7: Release date, plot, cast, news and everything else about your favorite cop comedy
Season 7 of 'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' will start airing weekly episodes on NBC after its premiere, after which they will also be available for viewing on Netflix.
There aren’t many shows that can boast of getting support from so many people – celebrities and otherwise – and, which after cancellation, get picked up by another network in a span of just 24 hours. In fact, ‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine’ may be the only show to have the bragging rights for that.
Having premiered on Fox on September 17, 2013, the show stayed on the network for five seasons, after which it got canceled. An immediate and overwhelming cry for its renewal came from all parts of the internet and NBC gladly picked it up for the sixth season and now a seventh.
On February 27, 2019, NBC renewed the series for a seventh season, but a premiere date is yet to be officially announced.
The hilarious cop comedy narrates the stories of the various members working in Brooklyn’s ninety-ninth precinct. The primary protagonist is Jake Peralta, a man-child who also happens to be a brilliant detective, but the characters around him, including the captain of the precinct, Sergeant turned Lieutenant and fellow detectives – including his love interest turned girlfriend turned wife – have very important roles to play and often gets the A storyline treatment.
Over the last six seasons, we have seen the precinct itself and the people in the precinct go through many changes, trials, and tribulations. Wrongful accusations, unfair punishments, and mindless games have all contributed to the evolution of their work lives.
‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine’ stars SNL Andy Samberg as Detective Jake Peralta. Samberg also serves as the producer for the show. He is joined by Andre Braugher, who portrays Captain Raymond Holt, who is a boss/ father figure to Peralta in particular and the precinct in general. Melissa Fumero’s Amy Santiago is Peralta’s wife, who graduated from Detective to Sergeant recently. She is the Yin to his Yang.
Other major characters of Terry Jeffords, Charles Boyle, and Rosa Diaz, are played by Terry Crews, Joe Lo Truglio, and Stephanie Beatriz, respectively.
The NBC show was co-created by Dan Goor and Michael Schur, both of whom were also the brains behind the extremely successful ‘Parks and Recreation.’ Goor’s writing credits include ‘The Daily Show,’ ‘Last Call with Carson Daly,’ and ‘Late Night with Conan O'Brien.’
Schur, whose credits range from ‘The Office’ to ‘The Good Place,’ is a wizard when it comes to comedies, especially ones involving a large and diverse cast. His shows have offered the world many breakout stars, from Chris Pratt in ‘Parks and Recreation’ to D'Arcy Carden in ‘The Good Place.’
It was announced during NBC’s upfronts press call on May 12, Sunday, that the network has ordered Season 7 consisting 13 episodes. A joyous video of the cast’s response to the news, when they hear it for the first time has been shared on the official YouTube page.

Season 6 recap:
Season 5 of the series had ended with Peralta and Santiago getting married, and everyone waiting to hear if Holt has become the new commissioner. Turns out he lost the position to John Kelly, and he sinks into a deep depression and it requires a hoot-less Santiago to snap him out of it. He starts standing up to Kelly when it becomes clear that all his policies are regressive and counter-productive, but it does not result in much except earning Kelly’s wrath.
Gina quits her job to become a celebrity, while Santiago and Peralta debate on whether or not they should have children. Terry passes the Lieutenant's Exam and unexpectedly wins the Cinco de Mayo Heist previously known as the Halloween Heist.
The season ends with Peralta forming a suicide squad of sorts with some of their old rivals to expose Kelly’s crimes and although it backfires a little in the beginning, in the end, they are able to take him down.
