The past few months have seen quite a few cancelled shows get brought back by other networks, with Brooklyn Nine-Nine being one of the more notable shows that got a new lease on life. The show will premiere on NBC for its upcoming Season 6 and has been a homecoming of sorts for actor Andy Samberg, who got his start on Saturday Night Live. Samberg confirmed that the trip back to NBC was really easy for him, and that he felt welcomed by the NBC family when he appeared alongside the cast for NBC's Upfronts:
Andy Samberg got a warm welcome from the staff over at 30 Rock, and overall appears to be happy that NBC brought back Brooklyn Nine-Nine, even if it will have a reduced episode count for Season 6. Samberg also acknowledged the moment felt especially welcoming, as he's returning to a network he once called home, as opposed to another network where he doesn't know anyone or anything. The actor certainly seems to be familiar with the security staff of 30 Rock, whom he told Variety gave him a big hug when he arrived on the premises.
Andy Samberg is very grateful NBC happened to pick up Brooklyn Nine-Nine, but also stated he's just happy the show is back in general. Samberg admitted that while it is great he ended up at a network he's familiar with, he's ultimately most happy about the opportunity to continue the series:
The jump of Brooklyn Nine-Nine to NBC isn't just enjoyable for Andy Samberg, however, as the actor's co-star Terry Crews is also excited to be a part of the network. Crews, who has been a part of three different networks on past shows prior to coming to NBC, said he was honored to appear on the same network that hosted Bob Hope specials and Sanford and Son. Crews said the jump of Brooklyn Nine-Nine to NBC is great for the show, and said he believes will help the series grow more in the future.
