What Happened With Holt?

Quite a few loose ends were tied up in Nine-Nine’s fifth season finale, but this wasn’t one of them. The look on Captain Holt’s face was not enough to tell whether he got the Commissioner job, and hopefully the sixth season will quickly tell us what that email really said.

A Valentine’s Day Episode?

There isn’t likely to be a Halloween heist since the show is now airing midseason, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t other holidays the Nine-Nine could — literally or figuratively — tackle. The show’s current schedule would put it on the air for Valentine’s Day, which would give it a chance to take a swing at another staple holiday for comedy shows. Plus, wouldn’t it be cute to see Jake and Amy, an already cute couple, being even cuter on Valentine’s Day?

Gina’s Last Episode

We’re not so much looking forward to this as we’ve…come to terms with it happening. Chelsea Peretti is leaving the show in Season 6, meaning we’ll be seeing the last of Gina Linetti as a regularly appearing member of the squad. That said, it’ll be interesting to see how her send-off is handled. Will she get some kind of tribute episode? Will she and Enigma dance away into the sunset? Melissa Fumero told TVLine Gina’s exit is “f***ing epic,” so it seems she’ll go out in true Gina style.

Rosa and Alicia

This was another dangling thread Nine-Nine wouldn’t have been able to wrap up in just one episode. With Rosa coming out as bisexual in Season 5, she was given a female love interest a few episodes later in the form of Alicia, played by Jane The Virgin’s Gina Rodriguez. It’s not clear whether Rodriguez will stick around or if she’ll be mentioned from time to time, like Boyle’s wife. But we hope she’ll be seen again.

More Jake and Amy

Really, this applies to the whole squad; they’re all pretty lovable, and it’ll be great to have them back. But Jake and Amy’s relationship is a unique kind of magical and pure, and now that they’re officially married, it’ll be fun to see how they tackle the ins and outs of matrimony.

That High School Reunion

In an interview with Collider, Andy Samberg teased an episode where Gina and Jake go to a high school reunion together. Given that the two were childhood friends and grew up together, that makes sense. But high school reunions are awkward at the best of times, and with these two members of the Nine-Nine attending one, it seems like a setup for comedic gold.

Doug Judy Returns?

This isn’t confirmed, but it’s definitely a hope of ours. Doug Judy is absolutely beloved by the show’s fanbase, and episodes are some of Nine-Nine’s best and funniest. Craig Robinson and Andy Samberg are absolute comedy magic together, though Doug’s scenes with Rosa are hilarious, too. Maybe he’ll come back to see Gina off?

…A Hitchcock and Scully Episode?

In the same Collider interview, Samberg mentioned an episode centered around the infamous, occasionally brilliant precinct buffoons Hitchcock and Scully. While they might not have been most fans’ first choice for a centric episode, it’ll be fun to see them doing their thing — even if their thing is gross, unnatural and unhygienic.

More Guest Stars

From Bill Hader to Denzel Washington to Sterling K. Brown, this show has always had fantastic guest stars. We’re predicting Season 6 won’t be any different. The question is, who might we see briefly joining the ranks of the Nine-Nine or tagging along on the squad’s adventures? SNL guest stars are always hilarious, though considering the Twitter campaign to save the show, one might wonder if Lin Manuel-Miranda or Mark Hamill might make an appearance.

NINE-NINE!

The squad’s rallying cry will surely be heard again on January 10, when Brooklyn Nine-Nine premieres its sixth season on NBC after being rescued from Fox’s cancellation by the network.

The comedy is beloved for a myriad of reasons: its hilarious and insightful characters, its blend of comedy and real-world honesty and its heartfelt platonic and romantic relationships among them.
