The seventh season of Brooklyn Nine-Nine won’t premiere until early 2020, but the NBC comedy has already been renewed for season 8.
Whether you’re a fan of Brooklyn Nine-Nine or not, now’s the right time to become invested in the show.
NBC has renewed the comedy for an eighth season, according to EW. This might not seem particularly spectacular, but season 7 hasn’t premiered yet. This proves how confident NBC is in the New York-based comedy series.
Potential viewers should interpret the renewal as a sign that Brooklyn Nine-Nine is worth investing in. Even if a person hasn’t seen every season, they should still consider diving into the show. And we’re certain they won’t regret the decision.
As far as where season 8 will go, that’s anyone’s guess since details are still scant. But despite not knowing, there are a few character-centric aspects we’re confident we will see.
For one, Amy (Melissa Fumero) and Jake (Andy Samberg) will be pregnant before season 8 concludes. They tiptoed around the idea in season 6 and it’s the right time. Such a development could happen at any point between season 7 and 8, and we’re just saying pregnancy is guaranteed. Unless they break up before then, but no one sees that happening.
Secondly, Raymond Holt (Andre Braugher) is bound to receive a promotion to Commissioner. He’s currently working as a patrolman, but the task was given to him by Wuntch as a playful jab. She and Holt have moved past their major disagreements, they just bicker and poke fun as two friends would. That being said, Holt’s punishment will eventually be lifted.
The show doesn’t revolve around just those four characters so expect to see their castmates share an equal amount of screentime. Fans familiar with the series should also anticipate Gina Linetti’s return. She parted ways with the Nine-Nine in season 6, but Ms. Linetti (Chelsea Peretti) is almost certainly going to drop in before season 8’s end.
