NBC is about to bring Brooklyn Nine-Nine fans even more new episodes than we originally thought!
Deadline reports that NBC has decided to expand their season 6 order of Brooklyn Nine-Nine from 13 episodes to 18 episodes.
The show took to Twitter to share the good news with fans on Friday (September 7) morning, pairing the announcement with a very appropriate GIF of Jake and Gina having a celebratory mid-morning dance party.
“Nine + Nine = EIGHTEEN, y’all!” Tweeted the official series Twitter account. “We’re coming back with even more #Brooklyn99 on @nbc. See you soon!”

It’s amazing news for fans— especially given that the life of the series was called into question when Fox shockingly announced they wouldn’t be renewing the sit-com for the 2018-2019 season.
Luckily for fans of the show, NBC swooped in a mere 48 hours later and saved the day.
Though NBC has only committed to one season for now, the fact that they’re already ordering extra episodes is a great sign that they’re confident in the series’ abilities to bring in viewers.
While we’re sure longtime fans will be flocking to NBC for new episodes, the public outrage that was voiced all over the internet when Fox pulled the plug on the show was more than enough to pique the interest of television fans who had yet to tune in.
The good news is newer fans have plenty of time to catch up on the past five seasons before season 6 officially picks back up next year.
Brooklyn Nine-Nine season 6 is set to premiere as part of NBC’s midseason lineup.
