“This is like peeking through another dimension,” Fumero tweeted this week. “Gotta say though after watching this…I’m suddenly curious about the Latina population in Quebec. Just sayin’.”
However, Fumero said the show could present an opportunity to its creators to encourage more diversity among the cast members. “If the show is successful I hope the creators take that opportunity to hire more BIPOC in supporting and guest roles,” she said. “Also, you guyssssss Amy is not sexy ON PURPOSE. So that bums me out too,” adding her frustrations over the remake’s depiction of her character in the trailer.
“Brooklyn Nine-Nine” has an eighth season coming up, though it’s unclear when production will resume on the show. IndieWire recently interviewed former star Chelsea Peretti, who said that in the next season, the showrunners ought to consider defunding the police.
“Escouade 99” premieres September 17 on the streaming service Club Illico.
