Brooklyn Nine-Nine has copped a very early renewal at NBC, with the network commissioning an eighth season of the Andy Samberg comedy three months ahead of the series’ Season 7 launch.
Per NBC, Brooklyn Nine-Nine‘s sixth season averaged a 1.2 rating and 3.2 million viewers (live-plus same day) — a double digit uptick vs. the sitcom’s Season 5 performance on Fox. After 35 days of linear and digital delayed viewing, B99 grew to a 3.1 rating in 18-49 and 6.4 million viewers overall.
Season 7 premieres Thursday, Feb. 6 at 8/7c, before airing in its regularly scheduled 8:30/7:30c time slot beginning Feb. 13.
The cast — which also includes Andre Braugher, Terry Crews, Melissa Fumero, Stephanie Beatriz, Joe Lo Truglio, Dirk Blocker and Joel McKinnon Miller — learned of the pickup from Tracey Pakosta, NBC’s co-president of scripted programming, early Thursday at a table read for a Season 7 episode (watch video below).
TVLine’s 2020 Renewal Scorecard has been updated to reflect B99‘s renewal.
