The “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” Precinct Team Works to Exonerate Jake and Rosa on the Season Premiere
Season Premiere Tuesday, September 26 at 9:30 PM ET/PT on FOX
Entering its fifth season, “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” follows the exploits of the hilarious Detective Jake Peralta (Andy Samberg), his diverse, lovable colleagues and their more-serious-than-a-hunk-of-actual-granite boss, Captain Holt (Andre Braugher), as they police the NYPD’s 99th precinct. The series will celebrate a major milestone this season, as it films its 99th episode.
The new season begins with "The Big House Pt. 1" where Jake and Rosa assimilate to their new lives behind bars, but both are coping in very different ways. Jake bonds with his cellmate, Caleb (guest star Tim Meadows), and is forced to join a prison gang led by notorious inmate Romero (guest star Lou Diamond Phillips), in order to gain his protection. Meanwhile, in the women’s prison, Rosa puts Holt and Terry to the test by having them complete outrageous favors for her. Back in the precinct, Amy and Charles are doing all they can to exonerate their colleagues.
From Emmy Award-winning writer/producers Dan Goor and Michael Schur, “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” won the 2014 Golden Globe Awards for Best Television Series – Comedy or Musical and Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series – Comedy or Musical (Samberg). Braugher earned three consecutive Emmy Award nominations for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series, from 2014-2016.
