Brooklyn Nine-Nine season 7 premiere set for February 2020

It’s official! Brooklyn Nine-Nine season 7 has a release date and it’s not far from now. Continue reading for more details.

To build hype for the upcoming season of Brooklyn Nine-Nine, NBC has released a faux poster in Die Hard’s likeness. It comes accompanied by an image of Jake Peralta (Andy Samberg) standing alongside a caption of the premiere date, which is on February 6, 2020. Not only that, but the announcement confirms that the season 7 premiere would be an hour-long episode rather than the traditional 30-minutes.

What’s on our minds is how many episodes there’ll be. The Brooklyn Nine-Nine Twitter Account retweeted Gary Levin’s original post which says there’ll be 13 episodes. Season 6 rounded out to 18 episodes so this likely means the network is on the fence about an extension. Keep in mind that an option for a backorder of more episodes is possible.

All in all, the more interesting aspect of season 7 is the plot. No one knows where things are headed but Holt’s new position as a patrolman is bound to be touched upon. Wuntch (Kyra Sedgewick) demoted Holt (Andre Braugher) at the climax of the season 6 finale, leaving her archrival in a humiliating position.

The silver lining, however, is Terry (Terry Crews) got to remain at the Nine-Nine after Wuntch increased their budget to accommodate an additional lieutenant.

Another subplot we’re interested in Jake and Amy having a baby. They’re not pregnant yet but the Detective couple decided that they wanted to start a family in season 6. There’s no telling when such a development will happen but season 7 seems like the best bet.

Lastly, Hitchcock (Dirk Blocker) and Scully (Joel McKinnon Miller) deserve another shot at the main stage. Their origin story in season 6 left us wanting more and another episode dedicated to Young Hitchcock (Wyatt Nash) and Scully (Alan Ritchson) seems appropriate. They did tout being top detectives in the NYPD so the duo definitely had their fair share of adventures, all of which could be explored in another episode.
