For everyone out there eager to return to your favorite precinct, rest assured CarterMatt has the Brooklyn Nine-Nine season 6 premiere date within this piece!
Today, NBC confirmed that the Andy Samberg – Terry Crews comedy series, which is coming on board the network after five years over at Fox, will start airing on Thursday, January 10 at 9:00 p.m. Eastern time. This will give the show some prime network real estate, and a timeslot that was previously held by Will & Grace. For those of you curious as to where that show is going, it’s going to be undergoing a brief comedy shakeup of its own.
For everyone out there curious, let’s do our best to explain what’s going to be happening on NBC Thursdays from December until January — it’s a little bit complicated, to say the least.
December – I Feel Bad is going to wrap up its first-season run. While we’re not confirming anything 100% here, all signs point towards this being the end of the road for the struggling comedy. It’s just not getting the ratings despite creatively improving as the season went along.
January 10 – Brooklyn Nine-Nine premieres, and it will be followed by a new episode of The Good Place. For a brief period of time, Will & Grace will be going off the air.
January 24 – The finale for The Good Place will air and we’re forkin’ mad about it already. (Why can’t this show run for about 40 episodes a year and magically retain the same quality?)
January 31 – Will & Grace will return in the 9:30 spot, and follow Brooklyn Nine-Nine for the remainder of the season.
For those who are wondering, we foresee this new timeslot being a nice endorsement to the entire Brooklyn Nine-Nine cast and crew — NBC has faith in you! This should be a much bigger hit over at NBC than it was at Fox, though we’re not exactly anticipating top 5 comedy numbers, either. NBC should just nurture it, promote it, and allow it to at least get another couple of years if everyone wants to keep going. It’s one of the funniest shows on TV, even if we are slightly concerned over the departure of Chelsea Peretti. You can hear some more of our thoughts on that in the video below — for some more insight, be sure to subscribe to CarterMatt on YouTube.
There isn’t too much news out there regarding the specifics of Brooklyn Nine-Nine season 6, save for the longer episode order than originally planned. Amy and Jake are now newlyweds, so that could allow for some entertaining storytelling as they have to adjust to working together in that capacity. Otherwise, there’ll likely be many more police hijinks and occasionally meaningful stories in the midst of all the workplace chaos.
