“So the Nine-Nine is going to have to deal with what we know about the New York Police Department.”
Andy Samberg (Jake Peralta) also said, “The challenge is going to be being honest about what is going on in the world and not shying away from the fact that there are serious problems, and also not punishing viewers who like our show and care about our characters.”
“Our characters need to examine their roles in the world. They’re going to be forced to look in the mirror and see who they’re complicit with.”
