The Brooklyn Nine-Nine All Action Trailer

The first trailer for Brooklyn Nine-Nine season six has been released.

It sees Die Hard superfan Jake Peralta (Andy Samberg) get to live out his own fantasy version of the action film, as he finds himself stuck on a rooftop alongside Amy (Melissa Fumero), Rosa (Stephanie Beatriz) and Terry (Terry Crews).

Realising the entire building is about to explode, Jake finds a way to let his coworkers escape, while he takes the more heroic route of doing a slow-motion, gravity-defying leap off the top, catching a lift from an evacuating helicopter.

The show makes a slightly miraculous return on NBC after being cancelled by original broadcaster Fox earlier this year, citing a lack of room on their upcoming schedule to continue the cop comedy.

Unfortunately, the network failed to count on how beloved the series really was, as thousands of fans expressed outrage online. Soon enough, though, NBC came to the rescue, snatching the series from Fox and saving the day.

The teaser also revealed an air date, with the show making its return on 10 January.

The first episode is expected to reveal whether Holt has been named as the NYPD's next commissioner, while we'll also follow newlyweds Jake and Amy on their honeymoon. The season will also see Gina (Chelsea Peretti) make her exit from the show, although there are plans to bring her back in the future.
