The extended “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” squad members who pushed for their favorite broadcast TV comedy to be saved will have to wait until midseason for the show’s Season 6 premiere on NBC. We do not yet have a date, evening, or time slot — whatever, it’s still coming back!
NBC Entertainment Chairman Bob Greenblatt spoke all about his heroics on Sunday during the network’s annual pre-upfronts conference call.
“We jumped on it really quickly,” he explained when asked about the day-later timing of the pickup. “And we’re thrilled to have it.”
“If I knew Andy Samberg was gonna be cast in that show, we probably would never have sold it to Fox,” Greenblatt said. “He didn’t sign on until after [we sold it to Fox], and we thought it was a missed opportunity from the beginning.”
Other NBC shows airing in early/mid 2019 include the returning sitcom “A.P. Bio,” as well as existing dramas “The Blacklist” and “Good Girls.”
Michael Schur’s new comedy “Abby’s” will also wait until after New Year’s, as will freshmen dramas “The Enemy Within,” “The Village” and “The InBetween.”
