'Brooklyn Nine Nine' Cast Start Filming Season 6 After It Was Saved By NBC
| Last updated
We all remember thzat dark day, back in May, when the news hit that Brooklyn Nine Nine had been cancelled by Fox.
But NBC came to the rescue and gave the fans of the comedy police show the good news that they'd renew it for sixth season.
And now the cast have released videos and pictures of themselves on set, filming for the new season - and showing the love to the fans who backed them.
The squad are back in uniform and heading to a new precinct - and have taken to social media to celebrate.
Melissa Fumero, who plays Amy Santiago, tweeted along with a shot of her in her sergeant's uniform, saying: "Feelin super grateful today for all of you and @nbc. You're the reason I get to be back in uniform. Thank you. Here we gooooo! #Season6 #Brooklyn99 ????????"
This was a joyful change from the actors emotional social media outpour back in May, when she filmed herself teary-eyed after news of the cancellation.
Andy Samberg who plays the show's main character Jake Peralta, shared two shots of himself with co-stars Fumero, Chelsea Peretti (Gina Linetti), Stephanie Beatriz (Rosa Diaz) and Terry Crews (Terry Jeffords) on set, with a simple, but effective, caption: "Back at the 99..."
The cast have been publicly close over the past five years - even supporting cast member Terry Crews who testified in court earlier this year.
Crews, who claimed he was sexually assaulted by a Hollywood exec, was praised by his co-stars for his testimony on 'toxic masculinity' and the assault.
"The assault lasted only minutes," Crews told the Committee. "But what he was effectively telling me while he held my genitals in his hand, was that he held the power."
Following his powerful speech, co-stars including Samberg threw their love and support behind the comedic actor.
Samberg told the Associated Press: "We have a cast text chain and we were all texting him how incredible it was.
"He's a miracle. Terry's the best guy. I am proud to know him."
So what do we know and what can we expect our favourite Brooklyn cops to be getting up to next season now they're on a new network?
Well, full details haven't been released but, earlier this month showrunner Dan Goor told Television Critics Association press tour: "I think you're giving us an immense amount of credit to think that we've planned a whole season in advance. But yes, it is - the mandate from NBC...has been, 'We know this show, we love this show, that's why we picked up this show, please keep making the same show.'"
He added: "There are no substantive changes in terms of our approach to the show or anything else."
So if you're a fan of the show it really is time to get excited as the countdown for Brookly Nine Nine season six is officially on.
