NBC Renews Brooklyn Nine-Nine for the 2019-20 Season; Fox to Air 90210, a Six-Episode Event Series, This Summer

Brooklyn Nine-Nine

NBC has renewed its critically acclaimed comedy Brooklyn Nine-Nine for the 2019-20 season. This will mark the second season of Brooklyn Nine-Nine on NBC and the seventh season the series has been on the air.

So far this season Brooklyn Nine-Nine has averaged a 1.4 rating in adults 18-49 and 3.9 million viewers overall in “live plus seven day” Nielsens, an increase of 8% in 18-49 rating and 34% or 1.0 million persons in total viewers versus its average at this point last season on Fox (1.3 in 18-49, 2.9 million viewers). Brooklyn Nine-Nine is one of the strongest digital performers on the NBC schedule, deriving 45% of its “live plus seven day plus digital” rating in adults 18-49 from non-linear sources, the highest percentage among NBC shows.

“It’s been one of our great joys as a network to give Brooklyn Nine-Nine a second life,” said Lisa Katz and Tracey Pakosta, Co-Presidents of Scripted Programming, NBC Entertainment. “Cheers to Dan Goor, Mike Schur, Luke Del Tredici and David Miner, and our amazing cast and crew who each week turn New York’s finest into New York’s funniest.”

Critics have raved since the show’s NBC launch on Jan. 10. USA Today calls Brooklyn Nine-Nine “one of the most reliably funny sitcoms on TV,” the Hollywood Reporter said the series came to NBC “without missing a beat” and Entertainment Weekly said the show has a “joyous, goofball energy.”

Dan Goor, Michael Schur, Luke Del Tredici and David Miner are executive producers. Brooklyn Nine-Nine is produced by Universal Television, Fremulon, Dr. Goor Productions and 3 Arts Entertainment.

90210

Jason Priestley, Jennie Garth, Ian Ziering, Gabrielle Carteris, Brian Austin Green and Tori Spelling, the original stars of Beverly Hills, 90210, the groundbreaking teen drama that defined Southern California life, are set to return to FOX, the network they called home for the entire decade of the 1990s, in a six-episode event series, 90210. Chris Alberghini and Mike Chessler (90210, Awkward) will write and executive-produce 90210. The series is scheduled to air Summer 2019.

90210 comes with a big twist: Priestley, Garth, Ziering, Carteris, Green and Spelling will play heightened versions of themselves in a brand-new serialized drama – with a healthy dose of irreverence – that is inspired by their real lives and relationships.

Having gone their separate ways since the original series ended 19 years ago, Jason, Jennie, Ian, Gabrielle, Brian and Tori reunite when one of them suggests it’s time to get a Beverly Hills, 90210 reboot up and running. But getting it going may make for an even more delicious soap than the reboot itself. What will happen when first loves, old romances, friends and frenemies come back together, as this iconic cast – whom the whole world watched grow up together – attempts to continue from where they left off?

Beverly Hills, 90210 left an indelible impact on pop culture and an entire generation,” said Michael Thorn, President, Entertainment, FOX. “Its powerful legacy is an important part of our network’s DNA – bold stories not told anywhere else and bigger-than-life-characters – and we’re honored to bring back the beloved original cast members for 90210.”

Spawning generations of imitators, Beverly Hills, 90210 premiered on FOX on October 4, 1990, when it became an instant pop culture sensation and one of the most adored programs in the network’s history. Centered on the tony Los Angeles community identified in its title, the show aired for 10 seasons, during which it documented the trials and tribulations of a group of friends from high school to college and into early adulthood, as they navigated a myriad of coming-of-age dramas and complex rivalries, often making real-world headlines by tackling controversial and socially relevant topics.

90210 will be produced by CBS Television Studios and FOX Entertainment. It will be executive-produced by Chris Alberghini, Mike Chessler, Gabrielle Carteris, Jennie Garth, Brian Austin Green, Jason Priestley, Tori Spelling and Ian Ziering. The series was conceived by Alberghini, Chessler, Spelling and Garth. “Like” 90210 on Facebook at facebook.com/90210onFOX.
