Brooklyn Nine-Nine premiere includes Maya Rudolph, Failure to Launch nod

Summer is almost officially over, but Brooklyn Nine-Nine will still be bringing the heat when it returns tonight. Why? Because we’re headed right back to Florida.

The season 4 premiere resumes the action where it left off at the end of the season 3 premiere, with Holt (Andre Braugher) and Jake (Andy Samberg) hiding out in Coral Palms as part of the witness protection plan to avoid being killed by Jimmy “The Butcher” Figgis. Their contact? An intense U.S. Marshal played by… Samberg’s former SNL castmate, Maya Rudolph.

Check out this scene from “Coral Palms Pt. 1” (Fox, 8 p.m. ET), in which Marshal Haas makes sure that they haven’t been compromised before chiding Jake for his lack of commitment to his new identity as Larry, who is supposed to love the romantic comedy Failure to Launch.
