Andy Samberg Expects Changes To Brooklyn Nine-Nine
Andy Samberg Rethinking Police Comedy Amid Nationwide Protests
The Black Lives Matter movement has taken the United States of America by storm. Following the murder of George Floyd at the hands of police officers, the movement has gained momentum and protests have broken out in all states of the country, demanding justice for black people and equal rights for them.
Andy Samberg, who stars in the hit comedy sitcom, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, a show about a diverse group of police officers, has taken some time to answer burning questions about the show's future, amid nationwide protests.
The show's future has been brought into question by fans who don't see how it can continue to portray New York City cops as a lovely and diverse group, amid all that has transpired in recent months.
Actor Terry Crews previously revealed how the writers had to 'start over' with the show's upcoming season 8, and now Andy Samberg has added that moving forward has proven itself a challenge for everyone involved.
"We're taking a step back, and the writers are all rethinking how we're going to move forward, as well as the cast,"
The show has previously tackled workplace sexual harassment in one of its more serious episodes and Andy Samberg continued:
"We're all in touch and kind of discussing how you make a comedy show about police right now, and if we can find a way of doing that that we all feel morally okay about."
"I know that we'll figure it out, but it's definitely a challenge, so we'll see how it goes."
The 99th precinct may look a little different when NBC's beloved cop comedy returns for Season 8 and fans are happy at the show's new direction. Brooklyn Nine-Nine has previously dealt with heavy-hitting subjects. One time, the show's black character, Terry was subjected to racial profiling by police and was only let go when they realized Terry he was also a cop.
Fans are very eager to see what kind of changes the show makes in the future.
