The wait for Brooklyn Nine-Nine Season 6 has been a bit longer than usual due to Fox's cancellation of the series, which later found a new home at NBC. However, the upcoming season has now received its first full-length trailer, and it's one action-packed outing.
The trailer maintains the show's award-winning cop-comedy feel while also paying homage to Die Hard, down to the rooftop explosion and white tank top. Long-time viewers of the series will know that Die Hard is Detective Jake Peralta's (Andy Samberg) favorite movie and dictates decisions he makes in his daily life. Of course, by the end of the trailer, it's revealed that the majority of the footage has actually been Peralta's pitch for a recruitment video.
The fifth season of Brooklyn Nine-Nine ended with Peralta and Amy Santiago's (Melissa Fumero) wedding getting derailed by a bomb threat. However, the two managed to tie the knot by the end of the episode. The Season 5 finale also featured a cliffhanger ending regarding Captain Holt's (Andre Braugher) potential promotion to NYPD Commissioner.
While his decision not to interrupt the wedding's festivities for his announcement is classic Holt, it left fans wanting more from the series. The cliffhanger and emotional connection to these characters after five years made the Fox cancellation all the more difficult for fans and definitely contributed to the massive outpouring of support that made the enticing to NBC.
Created in 2013 by Dan Goor and Michael Schur (Parks and Recreation), Brooklyn Nine-Nine stars Andy Samberg (Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping), Andre Braugher (House), Stephanie Beatriz (Bojack Horseman), Chelsea Peretti (Game Night), Joe Lo Truglio (Reno 911), Terry Crews (Deadpool 2), Dirk Blocker (Poltergeist) and Joel McKinnon Miller (Big Love). It will return on Jan. 10, 2019 at 9 pm ET/PT on NBC.
