'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' star Terry Crews might have revealed the release date for Season 6
After Chelsea Peretti revealed her exit from the show, Crews has dropped some excellent news for Brooklyn Nine-Nine's fans.
Terry Crews might have just given away NBC 'Brooklyn Nine-Nine's biggest secret. Following its revival by NBC after Fox canceled the show, it has been quite an eventful year for the show. While speculations about the show's release date kept growing, Chelsea Peretti who plays Gina Linetti had announced that she would be returning for the sixth season but will appear in only a few episodes.
Crews, who plays the beloved sergeant Terry Jeffords in the show, had earlier taken to Instagram to give the news. In the live story updates, he stated his excitement about the show's return in 2019. The video was soon tweeted by the show's official Twitter page where it confirmed Crews' statement regarding the show. Crews has been pretty much all over the news ever since he spoke about his own experience with sexual harassment with William Morris Endeavor agent Adam Venit in the wake of the #MeToo movement, and how men should hold other men accountable for their misbehavior towards women.

Now with the show returning on the broadcast network, Crews is just as excited as fans who had previously been disheartened when the show was initially canceled by Fox. Among these fans was (Luke Skywalker) Mark Hamill himself. Crews later tweeted “to personally thank you, Mark, for using the power of the Force to save Brooklyn Nine-Nine!" when the show was taken up by NBC.
Oh NOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!! 😩😭😫😢 I'm SO not ready to say #ByeBye99. Be forewarned @FOXTV-when networks dump shows I love, I'm known for holding grudges a long, L-O-N-G time. I'm still mad @CBS didn't renew #SquarePegs! 😡#EverythingILikeGetsCancelled https://t.co/NEry6Hrpng— Mark Hamill (@HamillHimself) May 10, 2018
'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' was welcomed back by NBC, who originally held the ownership rights to the show that were later sold to Fox. NBC Entertainment chairman Robert Greenblatt had said in a statement: “Ever since we sold this show to Fox I’ve regretted letting it get away, and it’s high time it came back to its rightful home. He added that “Mike Schur, Dan Goor, and Andy Samberg grew up on NBC.” Fortunately, the show is back and will be running soon in 2019, although our favorite Gina will not be returning. Peretti too had taken to Twitter to give the news to her fans, when she wrote, "I won't be doing a full season of Brooklyn Nine-Nine in season 6. But that doesn't mean I won't ever be back."
