Brooklyn Nine-Nine is, for many, one of the best comedy television shows currently airing and you can imagine how devastating it was to hear that Fox had decided to cancel the show. Gratefully, NBC saved Brooklyn Nine-Nine from extinction and a sixth season is on the way.
Here is what Andy Samberg had to say on how crazy this journey with Brooklyn Nine-Nine has been:
“It’s really cool. It’s such a weird process doing a show. I signed on before there was a script and I just was like, “I’m friendly with Mike Schur and I love Parks and Rec.” But you’re also like, “God, I hope this is good. I hope I like the people I work with.” No one had been cast. We didn’t know what was happening with it, at all. I just took the leap.”
“I don’t know, in retrospect, I probably would have thought about it a lot more, but I’m so glad that I just said, “Yes,” and did it because I’ve really, really loved it. But, yeah, it’s cool. It feels really good to be able to say, “I’m on a show that’s gone at least six seasons.” It feels like it’s a success, in that we have a dedicated fan base that the show really means a lot to.”
“I get stopped by kids on the street who love it, and parents that say they watch it as a family. When you get into making a feel-good network sitcom, that’s what you hope will be the end result. Obviously, I do other stuff that is less kid-friendly, but it’s nice to have that happen. That was the intended goal.”
