'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' season 7 is going to be 'bigger, better, funnier, the best', tease showrunners
The cast of the NBC show took the San Diego Comic-Con panel to address the recent season while they also let us in on what to expect from the upcoming season 7
Every time a season of 'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' gets over, it leaves us with the same old questions: What more can this already spectacular comedy explore? And yet every single time they come out with a brand new season that pushes the boundaries and soars expectations so high.
Forget the previous season, we just can't help looking forward to a bunch of new episodes revolving around detective Jake Peralta (Andy Samberg) of the fictional 99th Precinct and his coworkers who are probably the most layered, but hilarious bunch of cops ever. Now, after six seasons, the cast and creator of the NBC show took to the San Diego Comic-Con panel to answer millions of questions about the recent season and also let us in on what to expect from the upcoming season seven.
"Bigger, better, funnier, the best," remarked showrunner Dan Goor about the soon-to-be-arriving season seven in an exclusive interview with MEA WorldWide (MEAWW) as we caught up with him at the 2019 Comic-Con.
"I think we're gonna pick up where we let off with Captain Holt," he shared about the character played by Andre Braugher, adding: "We are gonna really try to play off the cliffhanger that we had." Braugher's Raymond Holt was demoted by his rival, Captain Wunch, and overnight he became a traffic policeman, and that's the last we saw of him. So is he going to stick to the job? Season seven will tell!
But if you're just as much a fan of Jake and his coworker-turned-wife, Amy Santiago (Melissa Fumero), there's good news for all things Peraltiago. "We're excited to explore more of the Jake-Amy dynamics," Goor shared, but that's not all.
"We're gonna bring back a bunch of our favorites, who I think are also our fan favorites," Goor mentioned, adding: "We're hoping to have a Pimento (Jason Mantzoukas) episode. We're hoping to have a Pontiac bandit (Craig Robinson) episode, obviously. We're hoping to have Marc Evan Jonson (director), and we're also hoping to do a few episodes that break the form the way we did last season because that's interesting for us and challenging."
Writer and executive producer Luke Del Tredici pitched in: "I think our challenge is to always do things that we have never done - that the audience hasn't seen from us while also making sure it stays the same show. I think that in some ways we're an old fashioned show, but we're not trying to reinvent ourselves. What we try to do is make the show we're making better every time we make an episode."
So that's quite a lot to look forward to the season, right? However, no official date has been announced for the seventh season which was greenlit earlier this year, but if the show follows suit, season seven can be expected to arrive in early January 2020.
