When "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" left viewers back in May, the fates of Detectives Jake Peralta (Andy Samberg) and Rosa Diaz (Stephanie Beatriz) were sealed—they were going to jail. They were found guilty after they were framed by the dirty cop Lt. Melanie Hawkins, played by Gina Gershon. The cliffhanger served its purpose, and now fans are wondering where they'll find their favorite characters when "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" premieres this September 26. But ahead of the premiere, one recurring actor on the series recently opened up about what the show means to him and why he enjoys working on it so much.

Jason Mantzoukas, who recurs as Adrian Pimento on the show, is busy promoting his latest comedy film with Amy Poehler and Will Ferrell, "The House," and talked about what it's like working on the FOX sitcom.

Jason Mantzoukas is a familiar face

Comedy viewers may already be familiar with Jason Mantzoukas, who has appeared in several TV shows and films throughout his career. He may be familiar with his work on "The League," "Enlightened," "Parks and Recreation," "Kroll Show," "Comedy Bang! Bang!," "Transparent," and "Drunk History." The 44-year old actor also appeared in the films "Neighbors" (2014), "Search Party" (2014), "Sleeping with Other People" (2015), "Dirty Grandpa" (2016), "How to Be Single" (2016), and "The Lego Batman Movie" and "The House" this year.

With Rosa's uncertain fate in the upcoming "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" Season 5, it isn't known if her fiance, Adrian Pimento, will make an appearance on the show. It's likely that Mantzoukas' Adrian will return, especially now that Rosa seems to be heading to jail. He was eager enough to help the squad get out of the trouble they got into before they were sentenced, and is likely that he's more inclined now that they were wrongfully found guilty.

Actor admits he's a 'fan' of the FOX comedy

Jason Mantzoukas admitted to Collider that he truly enjoys working on the Dan Goor and Mike Schur-created show. He said, "[It's] really nice to be a fan of something and then get to be a part of it. watched 'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' since it started because I love all those guys, I know a lot of them and I love that set up—that Barney Miller kind of cop show." Mantzoukas also had some choice words for Schur and Goor, as he had nothing but praises for the Andy Samberg-produced series.

He said, "It's some of the smartest, funniest writing on television." As for the diverse cast, the actor admitted, "[They have] such a warm camaraderie, they are so supportive." Hopefully, viewers will get to see more of Mantzoukas' Adrian Pimento once "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" season 5 returns this September 26 on FOX.
