Melissa Fumero, who plays Amy Santiago on the show, uploaded a picture of Terry Crews, Andy Samberg and Stephanie Beatriz looking towards a door with their police jackets on.
Who knows what this will mean for the season, but no doubt audiences will be lapping up every second of it.
It was revealed in May that the seventh season was going to be 13 episodes long.
According to Deadline, the network’s executives revealed the number to the cast and crew – however, they said the same thing with season six and then tapped on an extra five.
Funnily enough, we didn’t see anyone moaning about that little bonus.
Unfortunately the execs didn’t confirm whether there was any chance of more episodes being added to season seven further down the line – but you have to take all the updates you can get at this stage, right?
The new eps are slightly shorter than when the programme was aired on FOX, when the seasons varied between 22 and 23 episodes in length.
In February, news of the seventh season was relayed to cast and crew, and the announcement was – luckily for us – caught on camera.
In the clip, an unseen woman can be heard saying: “You know how happy and proud we were to have you on NBC this season and we are even happier to say that we would love to have you back next season.”
The people in the room erupt in cheers and applause, with Terry Crews jumping to his feet with excitement and Andy Samberg pounding his fists on the table. OH. YOU. GUYS.
The legendary series was dropped by Fox due to falling viewing figures, but then NBC swooped in, saying it would produce one final season to wrap up the show and make everyone happy.
Clearly the content has been good, as has the feedback from viewers, so why not keep the Nine-Nine train running beyond the next 13 episodes? Just a subtle suggestion. Come on, guys… for the fans…
