A deep dive into the love lives of the Brooklyn 99 cast

Kevin has three cats!!!

Brooklyn 99 is one of those proper comfort shows. You don’t just watch it once, and if my flatmate’s Netflix history is anything to go by you just keep it on loop 24/7. The precinct seems to be a tight-knit place to work, so it’s even better to know that the cast are all best friends in real life too. The relationships between the officers are integral to the show, but what do their relationships look like off the camera?

From elopements, Mariah Carey music videos, and infidelity let’s have a look at love lives belonging to the cast of Brooklyn 99.

Melissa Fumero – Amy Santiago

Years later on the set of the TV soap opera ‘One Life to Live’, on which both actors were starring they started dating.
