About Brooklyn Nine-Nine

Brooklyn Nine-Nine was an American sitcom which centered on a police precinct in Brooklyn, New York. The show has now ended following an eight-season run.

The show starred Andy Samberg as Detective Jake Peralta, a talented but immature detective whose free reign at the 99th Precinct comes to an end when a by-the-book captain takes over. Andre Braugher stars as Raymond Holt, who battled adversity and discrimination to work his way up through the ranks of the NYPD to finally become captain of a precinct. Holt's unemotional style clashes with the Peralta's immature ways, though they are both committed to their police work. Helping Holt command the precinct is Sergeant Terry Jeffords, played by Terry Crews, a body builder who is just as devoted to his wife and two young girls. Terry is back on the front-line after a traumatic incident led to him being put on desk duty.

The precinct's squad includes Amy Santiago (Melissa Fumero) an uptight, by-the-book detective who is enamoured with Captain Holt and continually strives to please him. Detective Rosa Diaz (Stephanie Beatriz) is equal parts smart and tough, and rarely lets the other detectives in on her personal life. Detective Charles Boyle (Joe Lo Truglio) is a hard-working detective who isn't physically gifted.

Veteran detectives Norm Scully (Joel McKinnon Miller) and Michael Hitchcock (Dirk Blocker) don't bring much to the table with their police work, though they do make a great cup of coffee. Gina Linetti (Chelsea Peretti) is the precinct's sardonic administrative assistant. Though she sometimes hides behind a clueless attitude, she has been known to be surprisingly observant and more intelligent than she wants to let on.
