Oh, Andy Samberg, how we’ve missed you. In the new season of Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Jake (Andy) is still in love with Det. Santiago (Melissa Fumero), but his Captain (Andre Braugher) lets us in on a little love secret: there’s another lady in the picture!
‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine’: Eva Longoria Guest Stars As Andy Samberg’s Love Interest…Kinda
Brooklyn Nine-Nine picks up six months after the first season left off with many cliffhangers, including that one where he confessed his feelings for Det. Amy Santiago.
While it’s hard for me to confess that I would willingly watch Andy crushin’ on any other girl (even if it’s just on TV) — Jewish girl problems over here! — I’m happy to give you all a relationship update, thanks to Andy’s costar, Andre Braugher.
Andre, who stars as Captain Holt tells us that Peralta’s feelings haven’t changed since we last saw him.
“Peralta’s still in love with Santiago,” the actor tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.
She’s not the only lady in his life this season though.
Eva Longoria plays a defense attorney in a three-episode arc, and Andre reveals, “She stirs things up with Peralta — turns it to romantic comedy very briefly.”

Craig Robinson is also returning, reprising his role as the “Pontiac bandit,” which he played in Season 1.
“We had a such a great time with him last year. He did a terrific episode,” Andre raves about the comedian. “People seem to be excited about coming and guest starring on the show. So I’m looking forward to this show becoming more popular, and people becoming more enthused to be a part of it.”
As for Andre? “I’m having more fun than I’ve had in my entire career on this show, period.”
