Captain Ray Holt takes over Brooklyn’s 99th precinct, which includes Detective Jake Peralta, a talented but carefree detective who’s used to doing whatever he wants. The other employees of the 99th precinct include Detective Amy Santiago, Jake’s over achieving and competitive partner; Detective Rosa Diaz, a tough and kept to herself coworker; Detective Charles Boyle, Jake’s best friend who also has crush on Rosa; Detective Sergeant Terry Jeffords, who was recently taken off the field after the birth of his twin girls; and Gina Linetti, the precinct’s sarcastic administrator.
Lin-Manuel Miranda is a big fan of the show, and when in 2018 the series was cancelled by Fox he was one of a handful of famous folk — also including Seth Meyers, Mark Hamill, Sean Astin and director Guillermo Del Toro — who voiced their support for Brooklyn Nine-Nine. Asked if he envisioned some of these famous fans popping up on the show, co-creator Dan Goor said, “We’re huge fans of all of those actors. And we’d love to try to figure out ways to put them on our world.” Miranda is been cast as David Santiago, Amy’s brother and rival.
