The Nine-Nine is going out of service – but it will be some time before we have to say goodbye.
NBC has announced that Brooklyn Nine-Nine will wrap up its death-defying run with Season 8, which has been postponed to the 2021-22 TV season. The farewell season will consist of only 10 episodes, making it the series’ shortest season to date.
“I’m so grateful to NBC and Universal Television for giving these characters and our fans the ending they deserve,” said executive producer Dan Goor. “When Mike Schur and I first introduced Andy to the pilot [Samberg]He said, “I’m in, but I think the only way to tell this story is with 153 episodes exactly.” That was crazy because that was exactly the number Mike and I had imagined.
“I feel incredibly lucky to have worked with this great cast and crew for eight seasons,” Goors continued. “Not only are they some of the most talented people in the business, they’re all good people who have become families. But above all, I’m happy that we had the best fans in the world. Fans who literally saved us from being canceled. Fans who fill us with joy. Ending the show was a tough decision, but in the end we felt it was the best way to honor the characters, the story, and our viewers. I know some people will be disappointed that it ends so soon, but honestly, I’m grateful that it took so long. Title of my sex video. “
Brooklyn Nine-Nine first premiered on Fox in 2013, where it ran five seasons before being canceled in 2018. In less than 48 hours, NBC plunged into the cop comedy and rescued it. The seventh season ended last April and culminated in the birth of Jake and Amy’s son Mac (read post mortem).
In July, series star Terry Crews announced that the first four scripts for season 8 had been scrapped in the face of nationwide protests against police violence following the horrific murder of George Floyd. Shortly thereafter, Samberg confirmed that B99 was “taking a step back” when the cast, writers, and producers considered “how you’re doing a comedy show about the police”.
Due to the delay, fans will have to wait at least seven more months to see what changes have been made.
