If, like the rest of us, you're feeling the January blues, don't fret because we've got some good news for you: the anticipated season six of Brooklyn Nine-Nine is gonna hit our screens in just four days.
It's what the fans deserve after what can only be described as a roller-coaster year for the hit comedy. In one of the TV casualties no one expected from last year's season, Fox took the shocking decision to axe the show after a successful five season run.
But the fandom weren't going to take this law and no order and fought hard to see their show revived, leading to NBC swooping in like the heroes they are to keep the fire burning for season six and beyond.
Now we've just got four days to wait until the January 10 premiere date hits - and the fact that many of us thought this day would never come makes this news taste even sweeter.
The release date was announced back in November courtesy of the Brooklyn Nine-Nine cast, with Melissa Fumero - who plays Sergeant Amy Santiago - posting an old clip from the show on Instagram to spread the news along with the caption: "Season 6 coming at ya on Thursday, January 10th!!! See ya there Nine Niners!!! #Brooklyn99."
Airing on its new NBC home, the latest episodes of the police sitcom will start next Thursday at 9pm, seeing the original cast returning once more for some cop show japes. That includes Fumero, as well as Andy Samberg, Andre Braugher, Stephanie Beatriz, Joe Lo Truglio, Dirk Blocker and Joel McKinnon Miller. And how could we possibly forget the never-ceasing comedic wonder that is Terry Crews.
"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,'" said executive producer Dan Goor. "I don't want to say it's the same show. I think it's going to be even better this year."
Speaking about the Jake & Amy aspects of the sixth season, Samberg said: "They'll maintain pretty much the same dynamic, but it will be fun to see it explored through the lens of marriage, for sure."
But the account we should be paying most attention to is, of course, Crews, who quite frankly couldn't contain his delight when recalling the moment he found out NBC had picked up the show: "It was really late at night. I had to pee. And I got up, and I went back to the bed and my phone was glowing. You're like, 'Oh, man. Not more bad news.'
"And I pick up the phone, and the pickup was just all over it. It had been going for, like, two hours... and I was just like, 'Oh, my God.' It's almost like you were on life support, and you wake up and you're actually totally fine. In fact, you're better than you were."
Never change, Crews. Never change. We can't wait to see more from the actor and the rest of the Nine-Nine gang when it drops next week.
