Brooklyn Nine-Nine was left for dead by Fox, but it was picked up by NBC and lives to nail perps and spur laughs in its sixth and seventh seasons. Here’s everything you need to watch Brooklyn Nine-Nine online for free.

The buddy (sometimes not-so-buddy) comedy cop show created by Michael Schur (The Office, Parks and Recreation) and helmed by SNL great Andy Samberg was officially canceled on May 18, 2018. Luckily, NBC came through and picked up the show the very next day, and by September 2018 committed to an 18 episode sixth season. Which is a relief, considering the last time we saw the wacky detectives from NYPD’s 99th precinct, Jake and Amy were finally tying the knot. Naturally, there were a few hiccups, but season 6 will hopefully offer new possibilities and comedic situations. After all, marriage changes a guy, especially if that guy is the smarmy, cocksure detective Jake Peralta.
