NBC Announces Premiere Date for 'Brooklyn Nine-Nine'; Shifts Thursday Night Schedule

NBC has today announced the premiere date for the upcoming sixth season of the original comedy series Brooklyn Nine-Nine - its first on the channel after its cancellation on FOX. The premiere date also comes with some tweaks to the network's current Thursday night lineup.

The 18-episode sixth season of Brooklyn Nine-Nine will premiere on Thursday, January 10 at 9/8c. Furthermore, the third season of The Good Place will move to the 9:30/8:30c. slot the same night until its season finale on January 24. Then on Thursday, January 31, Will & Grace will take over at 9:30/8:30c.

Elsewhere, the new reality competition series The Titan Games hosted by Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson will be moving its series premiere to Thursday, January 3 at 8/7c. All of this also means that Superstore will not return following its fall finale until March.

And finally, the broadcast network has decided to cap the first season of I Feel Bad at 13 episodes. Representatives from the network say that was always the plan in order to make room for midseason comedies Abby's and A.P. Bio. However, the comedy starring Sarayu Blue and Paul Adelstein has had a low ratings performance.
