Brooklyn Nine-Nine season 6 to premiere in 2019

The Nine-Nine is back!

After Fox gave the Michael Schur-created comedy series Brooklyn Nine-Nine the ax on Friday, NBC all but donned a superhero cape and soared through the sky to revive the series for a sixth season. Fans who were once crying out on social media for someone — anyone — to save Brooklyn Nine-Nine suddenly rejoiced, knowing that Jake Peralta (Andy Samberg), Amy Santiago (Melissa Fumero), Rosa Diaz (Stephanie Beatriz), Gina Linetti (Chelsea Peretti), and the whole gang would return for more shenanigans soon. 

But when exactly will the upcoming season of Nine-Nine debut on its new network?

According to a broadcast schedule breakdown published by TV Line, NBC is holding Brooklyn Nine-Nine season 6 until midseason, meaning that the new batch of episodes won't premiere until the beginning of 2019, after — you guessed it — other series air their midseason finales in late 2018. 

The series' new time slot has yet to be revealed, but we can use the rest of the network's lineup to formulate a best guess. NBC airs The Voice at 8 PM ET and Manifest at 10 PM ET on Mondays; The Voice at 8 PM, This Is Us at 9 PM, and New Amsterdam at 10 PM on Tuesdays; Chicago Med at 8 PM, Chicago Fire at 9 PM, and Chicago P.D. at 10 PM on Wednesdays; Superstore at 8 PM, The Good Place at 8:30 PM, Will & Grace at 9 PM, I Feel Bad at 9:30 PM, and Law & Order: SVU at 10 PM on Thursdays; and Blindspot at 8 PM, Midnight Texas at 9 PM, and Dateline NBC at 10 PM on Fridays. Saturday evenings are reserved for Dateline Saturday Night Mystery and back-to-back showings of Saturday Night Live, with Sunday dedicated to football (Football Night in America and Sunday Night Football). Thursdays and the weekend seem pretty packed for NBC, and Wednesdays appear to be strictly sketched out for the three Chicago series, so it's likely that Brooklyn Nine-Nine season 6 will settle into a time slot on either Monday, Tuesday, or Friday. 

At the time NBC picked up Brooklyn Nine-Nine following its cancellation, NBC Entertainment chairman Robert Greenblatt gushed about the series: "Ever since we sold this show to Fox, I've regretted letting it get away, and it's high time it came back to its rightful home. Mike Schur, Dan Goor, and Andy Samberg grew up on NBC, and we're all thrilled that one of the smartest, funniest, and best-cast comedies in a long time will take its place in our comedy lineup. I speak for everyone at NBC, here's to the Nine-Nine!"

Co-created by Dan Goor, Brooklyn Nine-Nine has picked up two Golden Globes (including Outstanding Comedy Series), won two Emmys (for Outstanding Stunt Coordination), and helped actor Andre Braugher, who portrays the tough but lovable Captain Raymond Holt, earn three Emmy nominations (for Outstanding Supporting Actor). 

The series, which centers around the personal and professional lives of the team of detectives running the fictional 99th Precinct of the New York City Police Department in Brooklyn, also stars Terry Crews as Terrence "Terry" Jeffords, Joe Lo Truglio as Charles Boyle, Dirk Blocker as Michael Hitchcock, and Joel McKinnon Miller as Norman "Norm" Scully. This year, Brooklyn Nine-Nine received praise for its representation of LGBT characters, taking home the GLAAD Media Award for Outstanding Comedy Series.
