If there's one thing that every Brooklyn Nine-Nine fan knows about Jake Peralta (Andy Samberg), it's that he loves, adores, worships and obsesses over one of the best cop films of the 80s. Come Christmas — and any other excuse he can think of — the detective likes nothing more than watching Die Hard. So, when it comes to dropping a trailer for B99's upcoming seventh season, of course the sitcom's powers that be took inspiration from several decades ago.

Crafted to look like grainy VHS footage — complete with a square aspect ratio to match the boxy TV sets of the time — the just-released 80s-style trailer picks up where the series' sixth season left off. If you need a refresher (and consider this your spoiler warning), the New York precinct wrapped up its last batch of episodes with a bang. The squad brought down the city's corrupt police commissioner, and their beloved Sergeant Terry Jeffords (Terry Crews) managed to avoid being transferred to Staten Island. When Captain Holt's (Andre Braugher) boss and nemesis found out that he hadn't spent enough time in uniform back in the day, however, he was demoted.

The new season will chart the fallout from all of the above, plus the usual B99 antics — and based on this amusing teaser, there's much in store for Peralta, Jeffords, Holt, Amy Santiago (Melissa Fumero), Rosa Diaz (Stephanie Beatriz) and Charles Boyle (Joe Lo Truglio), as well as Hitchcock (Dirk Blocker) and Scully (Joel McKinnon Miller).

If you're not already counting down the days until the show returns, the seventh season will start its 13-episode run on Friday, February 7, Australian time. The series has also been renewed for an eighth season, which'll air either later in 2020 or early in 2021.

Watch the season seven trailer below:

Brooklyn Nine-Nine's seventh season will start airing from 8.30pm on Friday, February 7, Australian time on SBS Viceland, with episodes available to stream on SBS On Demand after they've been broadcast.
