After the most dramatic few days NBC saved FOX’s Brooklyn 99 and today the cast and producers took the stage at the TCA Summer Press day.
While the show was cancelled at FOX before being picked up at NBC, it seems the EPs hadn’t already planned out the next season so the new season will be just as it had been before – created in the same process.
Known as one of the most beloved and hilarious cop comedies, Brooklyn 99 also covers real issues and allows the actors to explore their characters in ways they want. The new season will continue to delve into topical issues, but EP Dan Goor explains that their issue-oriented episodes have to “still feel funny, but at the same time give weight to the issue and explore it in a fair way”. Goor added that they are interested in doing a #MeToo storyline, but make no promise as they want to do it right.
Regarding the Jake & Amy relationship, now that they’re married, the show will continue to follow them, their friendship and watch their “childish” behavior and dynamic through the lens of marriage.
Brooklyn 99 is set to return on NBC in 2018
