‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine’ Actor Details ‘Special’ Cast Reunion Honoring Andre Braugher


Terry Crews spoke to People ahead of the 19th season premiere of America’s Got Talent on Tuesday night, giving the magazine an inside look at the “special” Brooklyn Nine-Nine cast reunion held last month honoring late star Andre Braugher.

On March 14, Crews and his co-star, Melissa Fumero, sent out a joint Instagram post showing the cast together at a Los Angeles restaurant. “We laughed. We cried a little. We reminisced. We laughed some more. Nine-Nine Forever,” Fumero captioned the post. Crews reposted it with the message, “R.I.P. Andre Braugher.”

On Tuesday, Crews gave People exclusive details of the bittersweet reunion.

“Oh man, reuniting with the cast,” Crews reflected. “We laughed, we cried, we missed Andre Braugher, who we lost a few months ago. It was our time to reminisce and just think about how special our time together was.”

The White Chicks star added: “It’s beautiful. It was wonderful.”

Braugher died last December at age 61 after a years-long battle with lung cancer. He played Captain Raymond Holt on the comedy series, which followed the madcap shenanigans of Brooklyn’s 99th police precinct. Andy Samberg, Joe Lo Truglio, and Stephanie Beatriz also starred on the show.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine ran for eight seasons, what Crews referred to as “a lifetime in television years.”

“To have a sitcom go that long—I don’t know if it’s going to happen again,” Crews admitted. “It’s very rare and we all recognize how fortunate we are and we love each other. We’ll always be a family. We’ll always be connected.”

The 19th season of America’s Got Talent premieres on ABC on May 28 at 8 p.m. Joining Crews in hosting duties are Heidi Klum, Sofia Vergara, and Simon Cowell.
