Terry Crews Says "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" Scrapped New Episodes After George Floyd Murder
There have been quite a few stories about Terry Crews floating about in the media within the last few months. His comments about America's Got Talent amid Gabrielle Union's firing caused havoc, and then his impending apology smoothed things over. Then, his recent statements about "Black supremacy" rubbed a few people the wrong way, and when he doubled down on his comments, things only got worse. No matter what his personal stance may be regarding the current political climate, his show, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, reportedly made a few changes after the death of George Floyd.
Back in April, Brooklyn Nine-Nine wrapped its seventh season, but according to Terry Crews, the cop comedy had to scrap four new episodes. “[We] had four [new] episodes all ready to go and they just threw them in the trash," the actor said. "We have to start over. Right now we don’t know which direction it’s going to go in.”
Crews added that this is “Black America’s #MeToo movement" and said the cast came together and had “a lot of somber talks about it and deep conversations and we hope through this we’re going to make something that will be truly groundbreaking this year. We have an opportunity here, and we plan to use it in the best way possible."
