Shortly after this season ended, FOX cancelled the show, but luckily for fans NBC picked it up for a following sixth season.
Jake (Andy Samberg) and Rosa (Stephanie Beatriz) spend time in jail due to their dealings with Melanie Hawkins (Gina Gershon). Captain Holt’s (Andre Braugher) husband Kevin (Marc Evan Jackson) is put in danger while Holt is running for Police Commissioner.
During the season, Jake and Amy (Melissa Fumero) finally get engaged. But that’s not the best relationship story this season. Rosa comes out as bisexual and has a beautiful moment with Holt that will leave you in tears. The following conversations she has with her parents feel genuine due to Beatriz being bisexual in real life.
There’s incredible growth in all of the characters this season. It’s mind-boggling that FOX cancelled the show.
Final say: Better than ever. ★★★★★
