Peretti will depart sometime during Season 6. She is expected to return in a guest capacity. “B99 fans. Hiiiiiiiiiiii. Chelsea Peretti, here,” she wrote in a series of tweets. “I won’t be doing a full season of Brooklyn Nine Nine in Season 6. But that doesn’t mean I won’t ever be back, winky face emoji, heart emoji. I want to thank you for the hours you spent watching Gina be Gina: confident, idiotic-but-smart, pithy, and infused with rhythm and cell-phone radiation. It is hard for me to know exactly what to say.” Peretti then opted to post Emmy Rossum's exit statement from Shameless, tweeting: “Perhaps Emmy Rossum said it best when she wrote about Shameless (I bolded the extra relevant parts in her quote below).” Co-creator Dan Goor released a statement on Twitter confirming that Peretti's character will not be killed off. “I know for a fact that this isn’t the last we’ll see of Gina Linetti,” Goor said in the statement. “I mean, she got run over by a frickin’ bus, and she only missed like a week of work.”

Brooklyn Nine-Nine's Melissa Fumero and Stephanie Beatriz bemoan the lack of Latino Emmy nominees in major categories
Fumero and Beatriz reacted to the Emmy nominations on the set of One Day at a Time, where showrunner Gloria Calderon Kellett also mourned the lack of a nomination. "Latinos are doing beautiful work in TV right now and our visibility and our campaigns can’t compete with dominant culture shows so we are excluded from the conversation … for now," said Kellett. "I’m committed to telling these stories of other until we are no longer otherized.” Fumero said of the lack of Emmy recognition for Once Day at a Time: "Take away all the importance of showing Latino culture and everything for representation. They’re just doing amazing, hysterical, and also poignant, heartfelt performances on this show that are just as good as any of those women that were nominated. I don’t get it. I don’t know if it’s that our shows don’t get marketed enough."
