The return date of 'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' has been confirmed for February 6th, 2020.
The first episode back will be an hour-long, back-to-back episode and will pick up pretty much where the last episode left off. The final episode saw Terry returned to the precinct after it looked like he may have been sent to Staten Island.

Meanwhile, Holt was sent back to being a patrol cop after Wuntch found he'd only spent a month in uniform before being promoted to detective. The last episode aired in May of this year, but hasn't yet been added to Netflix Ireland and UK.

In fact, the fifth season of 'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' was only added in March of this year, despite the fact that the last episode of that season aired in May 2018. The reason? Licensing fees between NBCUniversal and Netflix, to put it simply.
NBCUniversal charges Netflix for each season, so it's entirely possible that Season 7 of 'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' won't appear on Netflix Ireland and UK until late 2020, maybe even 2021. That said, E4 did show the most recent season much more closely with the US, so maybe it's not all bad.
Either way, 'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' returns for more hilarity in just 90 days. This calls for a cold open.
