Fox’s hit comedy series Brooklyn Nine-Nine begins when a new Chief of Police, Captain Ray Holt (Andre Braugher), takes over the precinct. However, Detective Jake Peralta (Andy Samberg) is used to taking down crime his way, while fellow Detective Amy Santiago (Melissa Fumero) is desperate to be teacher’s pet.

Since the fourth season is about to return, here are 15 things you didn’t know about Brooklyn Nine-Nine.
