TVLine has learned exclusively that in the Fox sophomore’s Nov. 9 episode, Bernhard (Switched at Birth, Roseanne) will debut as Gina’s “eccentric” and “offbeat” mother, Darlene Linetti.
In the same episode, the ever-ubiquitous Stephen Root (Fargo, Justified) will guest-star as Boyle’s “very New York Italian” father, Lynn.
There’s a “strong possibility” that both characters will make additional appearances during Season 2.
Brooklyn Nine-Nine now airs Sundays at 8:30/7:30c.
