The Brooklyn Nine-Nine Character Fans Wanted To Be A Permanent Addition

"Brooklyn Nine-Nine" fans have always adored the series for its phenomenal cast. The detectives of New York City's 99th precinct are almost the perfect mixture of different personalities, coming together to make much more than the sum of their parts. From the ridiculously uptight Captain Raymond Holt (Andre Braugher) to the hyper-threatening Rosa Diaz (Stephanie Beatriz), each character has a unique personality that plays off of others in the most entertaining ways. Put any two of the characters into a room together, and they will have a wildly different conversation than any other pairing you could come up with, and that's the way it should be. It's a mark of excellent writing that each character is so distinct.

To some fans, however, there could be more for this goofy gang. "Brooklyn Nine-Nine's" great character writing doesn't just stop at the core cast, and there are plenty of side characters that have attracted love and attention from the show's fanbase. So, while it's true that viewers love the "Nine-Nine," there are characters that some wanted to become permanent additions to the crew.

Fans love both Doug Judy and Adrian Pimento

With all of the loveable side characters that have appeared throughout the series, deciding who would make the best permanent addition was no easy task for fans. Most viewers, however, considered either detective Adrian Pimento (Jason Mantzoukas) or Doug Judy (Craig Robinson). This is easy to understand, as both have had recurring roles in the series that have always been very popular with fans.

However, deciding between the two is not that simple, and plenty would prefer neither to become permanent cast members. "The best characters are the ones that leave you wanting for more," wrote Redditor u/Trania86 in a post about Doug Judy. "So many great characters have been ruined by pushing them in the spotlight for a cash grab, I'm glad B99 didn't do that."

That being said, the upvotes don't lie. While only 68 people upvoted the post proposing that Judy should become a permanent character, over 3,200 upvoted a post about him being the best side character. This makes it pretty clear that if fans were to have any character become a permanent cast member, Doug Judy, The Pontiac Bandit, would be their first choice.
