Apparently, NBC is loving having Brooklyn Nine-Nine season 6 on their network — after all, they have just officially expanded their episode order for the show from 13 to 18 episodes!
This glorious news was confirmed via TVLine, and while it’s still a smaller order than we’ve seen in the past, we do think that there’s plenty of room for great stories within that space! We actually think that eighteen episodes is a perfect order for a show like this because you can still concentrate the story somewhat without it feeling too different from some of the seasons in the past.
The thing that, perhaps, we’re the most curious about when it comes to season 6 is what the ratings are going to be like now that the show is on NBC. Given that they have the studio connection here they’ve got every reason possible to promote the show — it’s a perfect fit for them, and we hope that there are some more Saturday Night Live alum who choose to join Andy Samberg on the network that helped to dive them their start. What we know is that season 5 of the series averaged a 0.7 rating in the 18-49 demographic in the live ratings, but it expanded significantly after that when DVR viewership was calculated. We do think the show will fare at least as well, if not better, over at NBC — they just have a better architecture for supporting a show like this, and it will probably have a more appropriate lead-in to go along with it.
Now, we have nothing else to do beyond speculating as to where the future will take Jake, Amy, and a number of our other favorite characters. The expanded episode order also increases our hope, ever so slightly, that we could be getting a season 7 down the road.
