Brooklyn Nine-Nine Season Six Will Air On E4 Tonight

Brooklyn Nine-Nine Season Six Will Air On E4 Tonight

After five seasons, fans of beloved sitcom Brooklyn Nine-Nine were in for a shock when its original network Fox cancelled the series in May 2018.

Luckily, we didn't have long to wait before better news came along - the following day, the show was picked up by NBC for a sixth season, so here in the UK we knew it wouldn't be long before it aired on E4. And guess what? That means tonight. Yep, it's back this very evening.

Lucky viewers across the pond were able to watch the sixth season back in January, but until now, UK fans have had to make do with watching and re-watching seasons one to five on Netflix.

Not that we're complaining or anything. It's just nice to get some new material every once in a while.

E4 has picked up the exclusive UK rights to the popular show which has a reported 18 episodes in its sixth season.

But it will be bittersweet for some, because although we'll have Andy Samberg and co. back on our screens, it's already been confirmed that Chelsea Perretti - who plays Gina Linetti - is set to leave the show during this season.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine Season Six Drops On Netflix Today

Back in October, while fans were still celebrating the fact the show's future had been saved by NBC, Perretti announced her departure on social media, writing: "B99 fans. Hiiiiiiiiiiii. Chelsea Peretti, here. I won't be doing a full season of Brooklyn Nine Nine in Season 6.

"But that doesn't mean I won't ever be back. I want to thank you for the hours you spent watching Gina be Gina: confident, idiotic-but-smart, pithy, and infused with rhythm and cell-phone radiation. It is hard for me to know exactly what to say."

While the show's co-creator, Dan Goor tweeted: "From the moment Mike Schur and I decided to create this show, we wanted Chelsea Peretti be a part of it, and she always will be.

"While it's sad to see a member of the family leave, we are so proud of Chelsea and excited for what she does next. Also, I know for a fact this isn't the last we'll see of Gina Linetti."

The final scenes in the US came with a bombardment of messages on Twitter using the hashtag #ThankYouChelsea.

Fans shouldn't feel too down about Gina's absence, though, as Goor also promised that this season is the best yet.

He told the Boston Herald: "The mandate from NBC all along has been, 'We know this show. We love this show. That's why we picked up this show. Please keep making the same show.'

"I don't want to say it's the same show. I think it's going to be even better this year."
