Patton Oswalt to return to 'Brooklyn Nine-Nine'

Posted on

Brooklyn Nine Nine

Are you ready for some more football on Brooklyn Nine-Nine? With Patton Oswalt?The comedian will reprise his role as Fire Marshall Boone on the Fox cop comedy, EW has learned. Oswalt guest-starred in two episodes last season—including the post-Super Bowl installment that featured an NYPD-FDNY football game—and his upcoming appearance puts him in another cop-versus-fireman gridiron showdown, along with ex-NFL wide receiver Terrell Owens, whom Boone recruits to help neutralize the dominant Terry (Terry Crews).

And, yes, the relationship between Boone and Jake (Andy Samberg) will heat up again on the field. “More of the most terrible trash-talking you will hear will fly between the two of them,” executive producer Dan Goor tells EW.

The episode featuring Oswalt — who has recently guest-starred on such shows as Modern Family, Drunk History, and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. — is slated to air in October. Jenny Slate and Kyra Sedgwick are among the other celebrities reporting for duty this season on Brooklyn Nine-Nine, which returns to the air on Sept. 28.
