NBC just picked up a prime-time comedy series for another season, announcing Thursday that it will bring back “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” for season eight.
The announcement comes ahead of the season seven premiere, set for Thursday, Feb. 6. The season will bow with a special one-hour premiere before the show moves to its regular 8:30 p.m. time slot starting Feb. 13.
“Last season ‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine’ averaged a 1.2 rating and 3.2 million viewers overall in ‘live plus same day’ Nielsens for a total-viewer increase of +15% versus the prior season on Fox,” NBC noted in the announcement. “After 35 days of linear and digital delayed viewing, the show last season grew to a 3.1 rating in 18-49 and 6.4 million viewers overall, with 59% of that 18-49 rating coming from nonlinear sources — the #1 biggest digital percentage for an NBC series last season.”
The series stars Andy Samberg, Andre Braugher, Terry Crews, Melissa Fumero, Stephanie Beatriz, Joe Lo Truglio, Dirk Blocker and Joel McKinnon Miller. Dan Goor, Mike Schur, David Miner and Luke Del Tredici executive produce.
The series is produced by Universal Television, a division of NBCUniversal Content Studios, Fremulon, Dr. Goor Productions and 3 Arts Entertainment.
