What will happen in Brooklyn Nine-Nine season 6?
Brooklyn Nine-Nine season six will pick up from Jake (played by Andy Samberg) and Amy’s (Melissa Numero) wedding at the end of season five.
In the new season, Jake and Amy will be on their honeymoon which does not go according to plan.
Another cliffhanger to be addressed in the new series will be regarding Holt (Andre Braugher) had been promoted to NYPD Commissioner.
At the end of season five, Rosa (Stephanie Beatriz) came out to her parents, so it’s likely that storyline will continue in the new series.
This is the first season of Brooklyn Nine-Nine under the ownership of NBC after FOX dropped the show in May 2018.
Thankfully, after a huge social media campaign from loyal fans, Brooklyn Nine-Nine was saved by NBC.

Sadly, for one character Brooklyn Nine-Nine season, six was her last.
Actress Chelsea Peretti, who plays the 99th Precinct’s NYPD civilian administrator, Gina Linetti announced she was leaving the series at the end of last year.
Peretti released a statement to her 1.4 million followers on Twitter confirming the news but also hinted her departure may not be permanent.
She tweeted: “B99 fans. Hiiiiiiiiiiii. Chelsea Peretti, here. I won’t be doing a full season of Brooklyn Nine Nine in Season 6. But that doesn’t mean I won’t ever be back, winky face emoji, heart emoji.
“I want to thank you for the hours you spent watching Gina be Gina:”
She added: “confident, idiotic-but-smart, pithy, and infused with rhythm and cell-phone radiation. ￼￼It is hard for me to know exactly what to say.
“Perhaps Emmy Rossum said it best when she wrote about Shameless (I bolded the extra relevant parts in her quote below):”
Peretti posted two photos of the statement from actress Emmy Rossum who recently announced she would no longer be playing Fiona Gallagher in Shameless after eight years.
The highlighted parts in Rossum’s statement read:
“Season after season I’m amazed that our same crew comes back. And it’s not just because it’s a wonderfully written, wonderfully layered show. There are real connections, real friendships that bring us back season after season after season.
“This kind of stability, this family, has nurtured me and made feel safe enough to stretch and grow creatively.
“I can say for certain that this cast and crew, who I’ve been truly honoured to work alongside, are world class.
“I will always be rooting for my family. Try not to think of me as gone, just think of me as moving down the block.”
