Brooklyn Nine-Nine is adding some star power for an episode scheduled to air later this season.
According to TV Line, the aging Fox comedy series has added This Is Us star, Sterling K. Brown as a guest star in an episode that will find his character accused of murder.
On top of that, the character will have to endure an all-night interrogation at the hands of Det. Jake Peralta and Captain Holt.
If you watch Brooklyn Nine-Nine online, you will already know that despite the character being accused of murder, no topic will be out of bounds and that will make the episode a must-watch.
Having Brown sharing the screen with Andy Samberg and Andre Braugher will surely pave the way for one of the best episodes of the series.
An air date for the episode is yet to be set, but given that Brooklyn Nine-Nine is still on its usual midseason hiatus, it will likely air in the spring or early summer.
The switcheroo is surprising when you consider the fact that This Is Us is one of the biggest shows on broadcast TV and airs on NBC.
Brown has already won two Emmy awards for his role as Randall Pearson on the hit series, so it makes sense that Fox would want him to appear on one of its lower rated series.
Alas, time will tell whether it offers a short-term boost to the struggling series, but what do you think of this news?
Are you excited to have Brown on Brooklyn Nine-Nine?
Sound off below!
This Is Us returns Tuesday, January 9!
