Back from the (very temporary) dead, Brooklyn Nine-Nine will officially premiere in January on its new network, NBC.

The sixth season of Brooklyn Nine-Nine will make its NBC debut on Thursday, Jan. 10 at 9 p.m. and will air weekly during that time slot thereafter.

NBC ordered 13 episodes for the Andy Samberg comedy precisely one day after Fox canceled it and after Hulu, which has exclusive SVOD streaming rights to previous seasons, passed on it.

NBC Entertainment chairman Robert Greenblatt told Adweek back in September ahead of his exit from the network that bringing on Brooklyn Nine-Nine was “the easiest thing.”

“We own the show, and it was a big hit for us economically and commercially. It’s one of the smartest shows on television, and I’ve been saying quietly for the past several years: If Fox ever decided not to renew it, it should come to NBC. It’s just a no-brainer,” Greenblatt said at the time.
