- Brooklyn Nine-Nine has scrapped the first four episodes of its new season and will rewrite in the wake of police brutality protests.
In the wake of the murder of George Floyd’s murder and protests, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, a comedy show about a police precinct, will rewrite its upcoming season as they navigate the waters as people call for police reform.
Reality series shows like Cops and Live PD have been canceled which leaves scripted TV shows trying to figure out where to go.
Star Terry Crews spoke with Access and revealed that the creative team behind Brooklyn Nine-Nine will be restarting their new season from scratch. “Our showrunner Dan Goor, they had four episodes all ready to go and they just threw them in the trash,” said Crews. “We have to start over. Right now we don’t know which direction it’s going to go in.”
“We have an opportunity and we plan to use it in the best way possible,” said Crews. “This is an opportunity right now for us all to unite and get together and understand what this is and that we have to battle this together.”
