Fall TV Preview

Brooklyn Nine-Nine EPs Talk Season 2 Time Jump, Plans for Jake and Amy

The stars and executive producers of Fox’s Brooklyn Nine-Nine assembled on set Wednesday to give reporters a (safely guarded) peek at what Season 2 — premiering Sept. 28 at 8:30/7:30c — holds for Jake, Captain Holt and the rest of the precinct.

You have the right to remain spoiled:

* For starters, “There is a time jump,” executive producer Mike Schur confirmed. “It does not pick up right where we left off.”

* Jake and Amy’s still-budding romance is “not going to be the main focus of the show,” Schur said. “It’s going to be one of the elements of the show we’re going to follow as the year goes on.”

* Schur was hesitant to say too much about how it all goes down, but he did confirm that Charles and Gina’s finale encounter will “play into the premiere and the early part of the season.”

* Now that Dirk Blocker and Joel McKinnon Miller have been promoted to series regulars, executive producer Dan Goor said it’s “less likely that [Hitchcock and Scully] will die in a murder-suicide. … We want to put them in as many stories as possible and give them as many stories as possible.”

* Schur said it’s “always a possibility” that fan-favorite guest-stars like Patton Oswalt and Craig Robinson will be seen again in Season 2, as they’re forever “in the world of the show.”

    I love this show so much. While Jake is not even close to my favorite character he has come a long way since the pilot.

  2. A says:

    Such a great show. Can’t wait till it’s back!

  3. DL says:

    I would love to see Craig Robinson return. That would be amazing. His character’s entire interaction with Jake was hysterical.

  4. wonderbroad says:

    what’s a murder-suidice?

  5. Roger says:

    The Pontiac Bandit MUST return!

  6. Tran says:

    Still disappointed on Andy Samberg getting snubbed by the Emmy nominations.

  7. Fer says:

    Umm less Hitchcock and Scully. They suck

  8. Amy says:

    So excited for Brooklyn Nine-Nine’s return! So funny and an amazing ensemble! I can’t wait to see the fallout of Charles and Gina.

  9. meni says:

    Hitchcock and Scilly are good only in small doses too much of them may just ruin the dynamic. Hoping for a good season 2

    Can’t wait!

  11. JB Smooove says:

    Schur was Cousin Mose on The Office and a producer/writer, right?

  12. There are like MAJOR SPOILERS going on in Tumblr and FanForum about a specific episode (mostly Jake and Amy story)… maybe you guys should check it out.

  13. Erin Mezzetti says:

    Schur and goor have done it again ! I think this could very well be the next “the office.” The cast has great chemistry and the show is a new type of single cam sitcom. And It’s hysterical above all.
