Television dreams come true! "New Girl" and "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" are doing a crossover episode!
We love New Girl a lot. We love Brooklyn Nine-Nine a lot. So it only makes sense for the two shows to collide in a perfect television crossover. It sure sounds too good to be true, but it’s actually HAPPENING.
The two shows have just announced that they are preparing for a mega crossover event between their two worlds. What’s going to happen when Jess Day meets Brooklyn’s finest police precinct? Are we going to see Schmidt go toe-to-toe with Boyle over clothing and food? ARE WE GOING TO GET A TRULY EPIC GAME OF TRUE AMERICAN?
Details are being kept completely underwraps, but this big event is going down on October 11th, so mark your calendars. It’ll start with Brooklyn at 8 p.m., and finish with New Girl at 8:30 p.m.
“Stay tuned for our two casts to do a soulful R&B number on Empire, co-anchor the Fox 10 O’Clock News and connect for a touchdown on Fox NFL Sunday,” Brooklyn Nine-Nine co-creator Dan Goor explained in a lofty statement. “But in all seriousness, we’re all huge fans of New Girl here at the Nine-Nine, and we’re excited to see our characters interact and to work with their incredible writers and producers. And also to see what their craft services are like, compared to ours.”
“The crossover episode has historically been the artistic high point of any show that has dared to attempt it,” New Girl co-creator Elizabeth Meriwether explained in her own cheeky statement. “Maybe you remember ‘Blackout Thursday’ on NBC, or even further back the infamous Alf/Gilligan’s Island crossover of the late 1980s. New Girl and Brooklyn Nine-Nine will proudly and humbly go where few shows have gone since the 1990s. We know we have big shoes to fill, and we look forward to disappointing everyone. 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.”
Hearing these two riff on the idea of the crossover just gets us even MORE excited for it. Solely going off of speculation, the crossover probably has something to do with Winston, right? He’s a police officer, and maybe a case of his is intertwined with one in New York.
Or it’s completely unrelated to all of that, and Jess and Amy have been penpals this whole time. Are you excited? We’re excited. Both shows kick off their new season on September 20th, and October 11th can’t get here soon enough.
