We all love The Good Place. We all love Brooklyn Nine-Nine. Both shows are on NBC, and these are just enough reasons for them to have a crossover already. It’s not like the shows are running utterly oblivious of the existence of the other. Eleanor’s ‘Noice’ moments on The Good Place are the most obvious ode to the Jake Peralta legacy. And while Brooklyn Nine-Nine may not talk about death and the afterlife that often, it does unapologetically borrow people from its comedic friend. Since Brooklyn Nine-Nine had moved to NBC for Season 6, there have been hopes for a crossover. The network is, however, yet to tap into such an opportunity. And before it does so, it can take some cues from the wishes of mutual fans about the prospect. The Good Place Season 4, Marc Evan Jackson, Brooklyn Good Place Crossover
The most recent Brooklyn episode, ‘The Bimbo,’ featured the second guest appearance of the seasoned Marc Evan Jackson as Raymond’s husband, Dr. Kevin Cozner, on the show. Jackson has been integral to Brooklyn’s returning guest cast since the show’s inception. Aside from Brooklyn, Jackson also recurs on another noted NBC comedy, The Good Place, as the undying devil, Shawn.
Marc Evan Jackson Reappears On Brooklyn Nine-Nine Season 6. Is He Shawn From The Bad Place?
The recent episode marked Jackson’s second appearance on Brooklyn Nine-Nine Season 6, which this time happened for more dubious reasons. Despite the lack of conviction, however, fans were just as enthusiastic as always about Kevin’s return. The Good Place Season 4
Brooklyn Nine-Nine Season 6 had initially teased the appearance of Marc Evan Jackson on the show in a tweet a day before the episode aired. Overwhelmed, fans took the tweet by storm and started to draw comparisons between the appearance of Jackson in Brooklyn and The Good Place. The Good Place Season 4
Fans Theorize A Possible Crossover Plotline
A fan wrote,
“That’s not kevin that’s shaun from the bad place”
In response to this, another fan quickly tweeted,
“Shaun is Kevin from the future, who becomes so heartbroken when Raymond passes away. (VERY far into the future, peacefully, and surrounded by friends and family). When he passes away himself he attempts to overthrow the afterlife to get his beloved back.
The Good Place To Have Multiple Crossovers In Season 4?
Believe it or not, the insane fan theory does restore our hopes in a possible universe merger. If it wants to, the network can think of several ways to overlap the narratives of its knockout comedies. In the past, showrunner Mike Schur has also allowed The Good Place to connect itself with his other hit comedy, Parks and Recreations. A Brooklyn-Good Place crossover is a prosperous idea to earn extra viewership – a stratagem the network may consider in its most desperate times.
The surreal premise of The Good Place allows excellent versatility for crossovers. And given all the recent references shows such as Stranger Things gave made about the show, a crossover only seems inevitable.
