“Brooklyn Nine-Nine” is about to return with its seventh season, and on Thursday the hilarious cop comedy dropped a new trailer that recast the show as a 1980s-era police drama.
Fans can expect some some big changes in the upcoming season after Holt (Andre Braugher) was demoted to a uniformed officer by Wuntch (Kyra Sedgewick), adjusting to his new role patrolling the streets along side partner Debbie Fogel (“SNL” alum Vanessa Bayer).
“Brooklyn Nine-Nine” made headlines when it was cancelled by Fox after five seasons, only to be immediately picked up by NBC after a vociferous fan outcry on social media.
In an interview with last year with Entertainment Weekly, star Andy Samberg said he holds no grudge against his former network home.
“I’m not particularly cross with how anything went down with Fox, so I have nothing negative to say about them; they’re the ones who initially picked up the show and kept us on for five years, and in the end it made more financial sense for us to be on NBC than Fox as well [the show is produced by Universal Television, which is part of NBC Universal], so I don’t really begrudge anyone,” he explained.
“I’m also very grateful that NBC did what they did,” he added. “That 24-hour period felt like just hoping that this thing we had put so much time and energy into and care about so much didn’t die.”
Season seven of “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” debuts on Feb. 6.
