Brooklyn 99 star Terry Crews has expressed his interest in making a movie of the cop comedy, and he already has the perfect storyline.
Originally, the sitcom premiered on Fox before it was later canceled after five seasons. As it was such a popular series, NBC picked up Brooklyn 99 where it aired an additional three seasons. The cast and crew wrapped up the series finale airing in September 2021.
Will We See the Reunion of Brooklyn Nine-Nine?
While the show has ended, it doesn’t mean that we have not seen the last of these characters. Crews previously teased his desire to get everyone back together for a heist movie on Peacock, NBCUniversal’s streaming service.
In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter sharing details about his upcoming memoir Tough, Crews expressed his desire to bring the Nine-Nine gang back together for a heist movie or Peacock special. “We always had our yearly heist episode, and I think that would be brilliant,” Crews told THR”, especially with Peacock and all the great things that NBC can already do.” Better yet, he imagines the rest of the cast would all be on board as well to return for what would be basically a feature-length episode of the show.
What was Terry Crews doing after Brooklyn Nine-Nine?
Recently, Crews could be seen joining the Netflix comedy series Space Force. He’s also a judge for America’s Got Talent where he has also done recent voiceover work, which includes the animated wrestling movie Rumble and the Cartoon Network series Craig of the Creek. It was announced that Crews will also join the Walking Dead universe as a new cast member on Tales of the Walking Dead, an anthology series that follows new cast members in every standalone episode.
However busy Crews get, he is always keeping his eyes open for that Brooklyn Nine-Nine revival, such as with a possible heist movie on Peacock. He previously opened up about his desire to keep the franchise going with movies now that streaming services like Peacock are all looking for more and more exclusive content to offer to their subscribers.
While Crews would certainly welcome a cinematic return of the Nine-Nine’s glory days, he also confessed that he would be willing to do any project if it will provide him a chance to work with the Nine-Nine crew again. “I love, love, love my castmates,” Crews gushed. “I spent eight years with these guys, and they’re truly family, and I miss them every day.”
