Just days after “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” got saved from cancellation by NBC, Andy Samberg already knows who he wants to guest star in Season 6.
“We’ve had such a nice upswelling of support after the show was canceled,” Samberg told E! at the NBCUniversal Upfront presentation on Monday. “A lot of people went to bat for us like Lin-Manuel Miranda, Mark Hamill, Sean Astin. We’re thinking all of them probably are owed guest spots.”
He added, smiling into the camera, “So I would expect all of them to be on the show.”
Fox decided last week to pull the plug on the cop comedy after five seasons.
“I ONLY WATCH LIKE 4 THINGS. THIS IS ONE OF THE THINGS #RenewB99,” Miranda tweeted on Thursday. Hamill added, “NOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!! ???????????????? I’m SO not ready to say #ByeBye99.”
Astin also tweeted, “Have nothing 2 do with the show. I’m just a fan who deserves better.”
Miranda tweeted out a photo of himself with the “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” cast on Monday, so it doesn’t seem to far-fetched to get him in for an episode.
He added, “Also: since Friday night, I’m in the weirdest, best group chat with @HamillHimself @RealGDT @sethmeyers and @SeanAstin. Thanks again #Brooklyn99!”
