Media outlets are reporting that NBC have renewed comedy series Brooklyn Nine-Nine for an eighth season, three months before its season seven premiere.
The synopsis for the series is as follows:
Set in the fictional 99th Precinct of the New York City Police Department in Brooklyn, Brooklyn Nine-Nine follows a team of detectives headed by newly appointed Captain Raymond Holt. Among the detectives is Jake Peralta, who frequently tops the squad in collars despite his relaxed, carefree attitude, much to the annoyance of his more by-the-book colleague, Amy Santiago. Charles Boyle is a reliable but quirky detective whose emotions can sometimes go wild, as opposed to the stoic and mysterious Rosa Diaz. The final two detectives, Michael Hitchcock and Norman “Norm” Scully, are older and often incompetent, although not without their usefulness. The detectives report to Sergeant Terry Jeffords, a devoted family man who is initially afraid to go back to active police work for fear that he might die in the line of duty and thus leave his children without a father. Rounding out the precinct is sarcastic civilian administrator Gina Linetti, who seems to value everything like dancing and her social life over work, and does anything to avoid her job.
