17 Behind-the-Scenes Secrets From Brooklyn Nine-Nine
Terry Crews invented the “Nine-Nine!” chant!
Melissa Fumero revealed the origins of the “Nine-Nine!” chant in a tweet recently and credited it to Terry Crews, who plays Terry Jeffords on the show. It all began because Crews is the ultimate cheerleader for his squad, both on and off the screen! He would use the chant to pump the cast up on long days and rough shoots. They soon integrated it into the show as a sign of camaraderie between the 99th precinct squad. Brooklyn Nine-Nine‘s very own catchphrase was born. Nine-Nine!
