It's the comedy's first renewal at its new network.
February 27, 2019
NBC announced today that Brooklyn Nine-Nine has been picked up for a seventh season. The good news marks the first renewal of the cop comedy at the peacock network since being revived from cancellation last year.
The half-hour series is currently seven episodes into its 18-episode sixth season, and so far things are looking good. Ratings to this point have been solid in its Thursday night time slot, and critical consensus is that the show hasn't missed a beat comedically since its return.
Led by Saturday Night Live alum Andy Samberg, Brooklyn Nine-Nine follows an offbeat group of detectives and staff at the 99th precinct of the New York Police Department. Samberg plays the eclectic Jake Peralta, a talented but immature detective whose carefree style clashes with his stern, by-the-books captain, played by Andre Braugher.
Look for Season 7 of Brooklyn Nine-Nine during the 2019-2020 season.

Yh, not the bet episode, didn't like how Jake was acting but as far as your point went it wasn't just the kiss, i understood it as more of the line that followed it of "you owe this much at least". Amy didn't class the kiss as the assault but the fact the supervisor expected sexual favors in return for him helping her with her career and subsequent promotion.
Which i agree with, its gross and should be classified as "assault" in a sense as he was using his "power" over her, but with that being said i also agree with the fact that a lot of people online say about its only assault if the perpetrator is "ugly/unattractive".
If the offending party is attractive its not an issue or people don't report it as i have yet to see a case made against an "attractive" individual and it would be ludicrous to say only ugly people are sexual predators.
So as much as i agree with people fighting against genuine predators/offenders such double standards shouldn't exist and anyone who acts inappropriately to a degree where it would be classified as assault should be prosecuted.
That all being said episode wasn't all bad, it had a few laughs and probably meant a lot to feminists so 6-7/10. Sometimes you need bottle episodes that pander to specific demographics or have a political message to engage/please said audience and you simply weren't the audience for this episode.
Overall i agree quality has been decreasing as i believe writers are running out of ideas/stories to use but its still better than a lot of the drivel out there. B99 on a bad day is still better than most other "comedies" on a good day.
