Brooklyn Nine-Nine season six reporting for duty on Netflix in January as SBS says goodbye


This just in from the 99th precinct – your favourite cops are relocating from SBS to Netflix Australia this coming January for season six!

When the (highly-anticipated) season six of Brooklyn Nine-Nine finally premiered in the US, Aussie viewers were able to stay in the loop and keep up with the gang thanks to SBS – who fast-tracked episodes hours after their American release to Aussie TVs. However, that miracle couldn’t last forever, with episodes expiring in May this year. Luckily for us, Netflix rarely disappoints and has revealed they will be welcoming the entire sixth season of Brooklyn Nine-Nine into their home with open arms. So, if you missed out (or are desperate to re-watch the season), you can catch all episodes of the sixth season on January 11, 2020.

However it’s not all bad news for SBS, with the B99 squad returning for season seven in February 2020, meaning SBS On Demand may roll out all previous seasons for you to binge. Cool cool cool cool cool cool.

What can we expect in season six?

The cult comedy, which stars Andy Samburg as the cheeky joker Jake Peralta, and Andre Braugher as the inscrutable but increasingly loveable Raymond Holt, are like our very own family – and we’re all ready to welcome them back with open arms (okay, and maybe with a few tears).

The first episode of season six will pick up directly from the season finale, where we saw the ‘toit nups’ (aka the low-budget wedding of the year) of Jake and Detective Amy Santiago (played by Melissa Fumeron) and the potential set up of a brand new lady power couple featuring Detective Rosa Diaz (Stephanie Beatriz) and Jane the Virgin’s very own Gina Rodriguez (crossover, anyone?).

The finale’s cliff-hanger however, revolves around the expressionless Holt as he waits to find out whether or not he’s been given the job as police commissioner – and in the final few seconds we see him (in typical Holt style), stating: “Well, from the look on my face I’m sure you can guess what it says.” Classic gag. But really, we need to know.

Andy Samburg has also given us a few teasers in an interview, where he said there will be an episode dedicated to fan-favourites and the greatest on-screen bromance, detectives Scully and Hitchcock (only rivalled by Jake and the Pontiac bandit) and we will see Jake and Gina (Chelsea Peretti) go to a high school reunion (the two actors actually grew up together in real life!) and the annual Halloween Heist.

There are also rumours circulating of a #MeToo episode, which comes in the wake of recent Hollywood controversies – especially with cast member Terry Crew being very vocal and public about his personal experience as a victim of sexual abuse.

So, where can we watch season six of Brooklyn Nine-Nine in Australia?

Previously all episodes were available for streaming on SBS On Demand, but as of January 11, 2020 the gang has a new home and you’ll be able to catch the entire season of shenanigans on Netflix. Noice.
