Brooklyn Nine-Nine Is Getting A Remake That Will Take Place In Quebec, Canada

Brooklyn Nine-Nine, the cult comedy smash hit that has captivated audiences for years is officially gettinga Quebec remake. Yes, you read that right! This marks the first time a Dan Goor and Michael Schur produced comedy is getting an international remake.

Quebecor Content struck a deal with NBCUniversal International for the Quebecois version of Nine-Nine, to be produced by ComediHa! The series is set to be shot in Quebec City this summer and will be directed by Patrick Huard of Bon Cop Bad Cop, Starbuck, and Taxi 0-22 fame. 

If you haven't already seen it, Brooklyn Nine-Nine is a comedy hit that follows a group of silly but talented New York detectives in their various misadventures. Starring Andy Samberg, the show has seen incredible success despite being cancelled and then renewed.

Patrick Huard, a seasoned professional in his own right, is slated to direct the comedy series. Huard is one of the biggest film stars in Quebec and has never directed a full series before. 

According to Deadline, Yann Paquet, president of Quebecor Content says that the company is excited about the prospects of working with NBCUniversal. Sylvain Parent Bédard, president of ComediHa!, meanwhile, is highlighting the economic boon the new production will bring to the Quebec capital.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine has been on-going for six seasons and was just renewed for its seventh. After FOX cancelled the series after five seasons, NBCUniversal picked it up and rescued the show after a huge outcry from fans. 

The series currently has a 97% score on Rotten Tomatoes and is a cultural phenomenon. Hopefully, Quebec's version will be just as loved and just as funny as the original. Fans of the show in Quebec are kind of skeptical, though. 

Whatever the case may be, I'm excited about the potential of this series.

Season 6 of Brooklyn Nine-Nine is about to wrap up in the next few weeks and production on the Quebecois version begins this summer in Quebec City. The Canadian version does not yet have a name, so stay tuned for more announcements as they're released!
