Jake Peralta, meet Jess Day!
Brooklyn Nine-Nine and New Girl are staging an epic crossover event on Tuesday, Oct. 11 with back-to-back episodes starting at 8 p.m., it was announced at Fox’s Television Critics Association press day on Monday.
Details are scarce at the moment, but the Brooklyn Nine-Nine team will meet the New Girl crew in New York City for the back-to-back episodes.
“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 Dan Goor, co-creator and executive producer of Brooklyn Nine-Nine.
“We know we have big shoes to fill, and we look forward to disappointing everyone,” joked Liz Meriwether, creator and executive producer of New Girl. “There’s a 50 percent chance Alf will also be in both episodes. But there’s also a 50 percent chance that is a lie.”
In the Brooklyn Nine-Nine season four premiere, airing Sept. 20, Jake (Andy Samberg) and Holt (Andre Braugher) are still in Florida under the Witness Protection Program, with only U.S. Marshall Karen Haas (guest star Maya Rudolph) as their only link to their regular lives.
On the New Girl season six premiere, also airing Sept. 20, Jess (Zooey Deschanel) faces Nick (Jake Johnson) for the first time after realizing she has feelings for him.
