If you’re fans of New Girl or Brooklyn Nine-Nine, all of your crossover dreams that you didn’t know you had have come to life. An announcement today said that Jake Peralta and Jess are going to cross paths in a hour length episode come October. It will air on the 11th of October on FOX in the US, and considering that both shows air back to back, this crossover episode will be seemingly squished in between.
However, considering it is being aired on US television, who knows how Australian fans like us will end up watching the episode. Could just pray to the Netflix gods and hope that it’s going to be included when Netflix put the newest season up, but considering it is a crossover and considering everyone is impatient, who knows (not me).
In a statement today, creator of Brooklyn Nine-Nine Dan Goor announced:
“Brooklyn Nine-Nine crossing over with New Girl is very exciting, but (and this is supposed to be a secret) it’s just the first step,” said Brooklyn Nine-Nine co-creator Dan Goor in his own statement. “Stay tuned for our two casts to do a soulful R&B number on Empire, co-anchor the Fox 10 O’Clock News and connect for a touchdown on Fox NFL Sunday. But in all seriousness, we’re all huge fans of New Girl here at the Nine-Nine, and we’re excited to see our characters interact and to work with their incredible writers and producers. And also to see what their craft services are like, compared to ours.”
So, it’s official folks. Put ‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine/New Girl crossover’ in your calendar for October 12th because of the time difference and be ready for some of the weirdest crossover we’ve seen on our screens since Ant-Man and Spiderman were in the same superhero universe. Get keen!
