Despite today marlin the date where two more television shows bit the dust, there was some very good news for fans of the FOX series Brooklyn Nine-Nine. Not only was the show officially picked up for a full first season but it was given a coveted spot that should ensure a second season and plenty more.
According to multiple outlets, the Andy Samberg show Brooklyn Nine-Nine and New Girl will air episode after Supper Bowl XLVIII this February on FOX.
“It’s exciting to see that both critics and fans loveBrooklyn Nine-Nine as much as we do,” says Fox chairman Kevin Reilly, via USA Today. “With Andy and Andre out in front of this incredible ensemble, it feels like this show is going to be around for a long time.”
The Andy Samberg show has been one of the surprise hits of the fall season and it was really only a matter of time before the show was picked up for a full season order. But what’s more is that Super Bowl slot that has launched successful FOX comedies like Family Guy and American Dad in the past.
Those were premiere episodes, but the boost from the audience following the Super Bowl is something both New Girl and Brooklyn Nine-Nine can benefit from.
