Let’s hear it for the Nine-Nine!
NBC has finally locked in the premiere date for Season 6 of “Brooklyn Nine-Nine.” The former Fox series will make its new network debut on Thursday, Jan. 10 at 9 p.m. and air weekly in that time slot.
In other Thursday programming news, NBC says Mike Schur’s “The Good Place” will be shifting to 9:30 p.m., also starting on Jan. 10 and air in that window through its season finale on Jan. 24. Meanwhile, “Will & Grace” will move to 9:30 p.m. beginning on Thursday, Jan. 31.
The broadcaster also announced the America Ferrera-led “Superstore” (which currently airs Thursdays at 8 p.m.) will be pre-empted before returning in March, when the network’s 8-10 p.m. two-hour comedy block comes back with all original programming. The second half of Season 4 is being pushed back to make room for Dwayne Johnson’s new athletic competition series, “The Titan Games.”
NBC announced today The Rock’s new program’s premiere is being moved from Wednesday, Jan. 2 to Thursday, Jan. 3, from 8-10 p.m. “The Titan Games” will air in its regular time slot on Thursdays from 8-9 p.m. beginning Jan. 10.
And “I Feel Bad,” a freshman comedy from executive producer Amy Poehler, will “conclude” in December. Per NBC, the show was “always intended” to have a 13-episode Season 1, allowing for a pair of upcoming comedies, new show “Abby’s” and the returning “A.P. Bio,” to hit the schedule. The broadcaster says a “decision on its future will be determined at a later date.”
Now, if you can’t wait until January for a dose of new “Nine-Nine” fun, you can watch this very brief teaser.
In the clip, we get a glimpse of Jake (Andy Samberg) and Boyle (Joe Lo Truglio) getting locked and loaded for some upcoming mission. And that badass moment is followed by a really awkward scene in which Jake is dancing all up on Captain Holt (Andre Braugher) in the squad’s usual bar — but he’s clearly missed out on some key info the Nine-Nine’s boss has just delivered to his team. Now is not the time, Jake!
As fans remember, the Dan Goor-created comedy — which was canceled by Fox and rescued by NBC just one day later last spring — closed its fifth season on a cliffhanger after Jake and Amy’s wedding, with Holt about to reveal to his squad if he had been named the new NYPD commissioner. So it looks like Season 6 will pick up right where the last one left off. And we’re not sure if everyone is taking the news, whatever it is, well.
“Brooklyn Nine-Nine” Season 6 premieres Jan. 10 at 9/8c on NBC.
