Brooklyn Nine-Nine has had a bevy of great guest stars this season, and it looks like they’re adding one more to the list.
EW reports that Niecy Nash will be playing Captain Holt’s sister in an upcoming episode of the Fox comedy. This past Sunday brought Nick Offerman as Holt’s ex-boyfriend, Frederick, and earlier this season, both Bill Hader and Archie Panjabi made appearances as well. Brooklyn Nine-Nine is nailing the guest star game, and we can hardly wait to see who they bring us next.
Nash tweeted this from the Brooklyn Nine-Nine set, and is really excited to be a part of all the Nine-Nine fun.

Everything keeps coming up Captain, as we’ve been privy to more of his life in Brooklyn Nine-Nine season 3 than ever before. Sure, we’ve met his husband a handful of times, but now that the Captain has been newly restored to his position at the head of the Nine-nine, we’ve learned more than we ever thought we wanted to know about Captain Ray Holt.
The only other Holt family member that has made an appearance is Captain’s nephew Marcus, but his involvement was more with Diaz than with Captain Holt. We’re curious as to whether or not Marcus is any direct relation to Nash’s new character.
Niecy Nash has most recently been seen on Scream Queens as security guard Denise Hamphill, as well as the HBO show Getting On as nurse Didi Ortley. We don’t know much of anything about her character beyond her familial ties to the Captain, but we are certain that hilarious times lay ahead. Considering Holt’s stoic and unflappable demeanor, we are eager to see how Nash’s character will relate to her brother.
