The 99 squad is taking a much-needed holiday break before returning to duty. Unfortunately for them, they have to work New Year’s Day. The next new episode of FOX‘s Brooklyn Nine-Nine airs on Sunday, January 1, 2017 at 8:30 p.m. ET, although the show could be delayed due to NFL action. Read on for a preview of the special, hour-long episode, “The Fugitive.”
The previous episode of Nine-Nine was “Captain Latvia,” in which Jake and Boyle got in trouble while trying to get Boyle’s adoptive son Nikolaj a rare Christmas gift. Meanwhile, Captain Holt and the rest of the 99 were busy in a Christmas carol competition with their enemies at the MTA.
In “The Fugitive,” the squad has to help find a group of escaped convicts running around Brooklyn. Jake surprisingly gains help from an unexpected ally. That is expected to be his long-time nemesis, the Pontiac Bandit himself – Doug Judy, played by The Office‘s Craig Robinson. Former Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch also has a cameo.
As Entertainment Weekly revealed, Jake and Amy have a competition to see who can round up the most convicts. Jake enlists the Pontiac Bandit to help, although Captain Holt disapproves because he’s boring like that.
