Most of the cast regulars will be returning this season, including Andy Samberg (Jake Peralta), Andre Braugher (Ray Holt), Stephanie Beatriz (Rosa Diaz), Terry Crews (Terry Jeffords), Melissa Fumero (Amy Santiago), and Joe Lo Truglio (Charles Boyle). Dirk Blocker (Michael Hitchcock), and Joel McKinnon Miller (Norm Scully) will also be returning.
Chelsea Perreti, who played Gina Linetti in the first six seasons of the show, confirmed on Twitter that she will not be returning this season, “unless they do a flashback.”
Here’s what you need to know about the new season of Brooklyn Nine-Nine, including the title and synopsis of the first few episodes and the schedule for the new season:
Season 7 Will Be the Shortest Season Yet, With 13 Episodes
New episodes of Brooklyn Nine-Nine will air weekly on Thursday nights at 8 p.m. EST. According to Newsweek, the latest season will be the shortest in the show’s history, with just 13 episodes set to air, compared to the 23 episodes the show had during its run on Fox. The sitcom had 18 episodes on NBC last year. However, as Deadline previously noted, NBC also commissioned Season 6 for 13 episodes before adding an extra five, so Season 7 might end up being longer than originally planned.
