Brooklyn Nine-Nine Receives Full Season Order


After only receiving a 1.4 rating in adults 18-49, Fox has ordered a full season of the new comedy show Brooklyn Nine-Nine. In the states, the show will be airing alongside New Girl after the network’s broadcast of Super Bowl XLVIII on February 2.

“It’s exciting to see that both critics and fans love Brooklyn Nine-Nine as much as we do,” said Fox Entertainment chairman Kevin Reilly. “With Andy and Andre out in front of this incredible ensemble, it feels like this show is going to be around for a long time.”

We reviewed the show’s pilot episode, saying, “…there is certainly enough ambition, if channelled correctly, to make this comedy one that you can laugh at.”

Brooklyn Nine-Nine follows the story of smart-ass ace detective Jake Peralta (Adam Samberg) and the rag-tag group of detectives who make up the Nine-Nine detective squad. Used to running to their own set of rules, the squad is given a shake up with arrival of their new straight-laced commanding officer, Captain Ray Holt (Andre Braugher), who wants to turn them into an effective, professional and respectable precinct.
