Brooklyn Nine-Nine Season 6 Premiere Date Announced

After a near-death experience at Fox at the end of last season, Brooklyn Nine-Nine was mercifully resurrected by NBC. Now, the network has announced a premiere date for the show's sixth season -- Thursday, Jan. 10, 2019 at 9 pm ET/PT.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine centers on the shenanigans of the hilarious but talented detectives working in Brooklyn's 99th precinct. Created by Dan Goor and Michael Schur, the show cultivated a devoted following throughout its five seasons at Fox. Through most of that time, the show was on the bubble, never gaining the ratings it needed to be completely safe from cancellation.

When the axe finally fell at Fox after the show's fifth season, the fan outcry was swift and included the voices of some famous devotees, like Lin-Manuel Miranda and Mark Hamill. Multiple outlets considered saving the show, but it ultimately found a new home at NBC, the network of Goor and Schur's other shows, such as Parks and Recreation and The Good Place.

The show's ensemble of stars -- Andy Samberg, Andre Braugher, Stephanie Beatriz, Terry Crews, Melissa Fumero, Joe Lo Truglio and Chelsea Peretti -- will all return for Brooklyn Nine-Nine's sixth season. However, this will be Peretti's last season as a series regular.
