NBC's Thursday night lineup is getting even more awesome in 2019: The network has officially confirmed the season 6 premiere date for "Brooklyn Nine-Nine," and it's set to debut during that night's comedy block.
The Nine-Nine -- which is moving from former home Fox, which canceled the beloved comedy earlier this year -- will make its network premiere on Thursday, January 10 at 9 p.m. EST. The current occupant of that timeslot, "Will and Grace," will shift to 9:30 p.m. when it returns from hiatus on January 31.
"Brooklyn" will be in "Good" company on Thursday, with "The Good Place" moving to 9:30 p.m. on the same date as the "B99" premiere. The Kristen Bell comedy will wrap its season three run on January 24. "Superstore," meanwhile, will remain on hiatus through March.
"Brooklyn" star Terry Crews inadvertently spilled the beans about the show's premiere last month, when he announced on social media that the series would debut on NBC sometime in January. Fans had been eagerly awaiting a premiere date announcement, after NBC swooped in to rescue the Andy Samberg series back in May. Apparently the network was also pretty excited about season six, because it ordered additional episodes of the comedy shortly after the pickup.
We're already eagerly counting down the days. Is it January yet?
