The one-hour crossover event begins with Brooklyn Nine-Nine (8-8:30 PM) and concludes with New Girl (8:30-9 PM). Additional details will be announced in the coming weeks.
Season 4 of Brooklyn Nine-Nine and Season 6 of New Girl premiere on Tuesday, September 20. In Brooklyn Nine-Nine’s season premiere, Jake (Andy Samberg) and Holt (Andre Braugher) remain in Florida under the Witness Protection Program, with only one human link to their regular lives – U.S. Marshall Karen Haas (guest star Maya Rudolph). Then, on New Girl, Jess (Zooey Deschanel) faces Nick (Jake Johnson) for the first time after realizing she has feelings for him, while Schmidt (Max Greenfield) and Cece (Hannah Simone) begin a frustrating hunt for their first house.
“The crossover episode has historically been the artistic high point of any show that has dared to attempt it,” said Elizabeth Meriwether, creator and executive producer of New Girl. “Maybe you remember ‘Blackout Thursday’ on NBC, or even further back the infamous ‘Alf’/‘Gilligan’s Island’ crossover of the late 1980s. New Girl and Brooklyn Nine-Nine will proudly and humbly go where few shows have gone since the 1990s. We know we have big shoes to fill, and we look forward to disappointing everyone. There’s a 50% chance Alf will also be in both episodes. But there’s also a 50% chance that is a lie.”
