Brooklyn Nine-Nine, a.k.a. one of THE greatest shows of our generation (and generations to come, I’m sure), is set to close its doors after season 8.
NBC announced Thursday that the much-loved cop comedy – starring Andy Samberg, Andre Braugher, Stephanie Beatriz, Terry Crews, Melissa Fumero and more – has called it a day, once again.
But before they exit our lives, they’ve still got one more case to work on: a 10 episode season (which is, sadly, three fewer episodes than last season).

The eighth season won’t even air in the 2020-2021 season as initially planned, but it’s slated to premiere during the 2021-2022 season.
Production was recently shutdown due to COVID, as have many productions across the globe, but Brooklyn Nine-Nine will resume filming on season 8 in a coupla weeks.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine first entered our lives in 2013 and I don’t think I’m over-dramatising when I say it changed us forever.
A steady decline in ratings led its cancellation by Fox in May 2018 after a five-season run, but when a bunch of fans lost their shit on social media (including some high-profile fans like Mark Hamill and Lin-Manuel Miranda), the glorious gods at NBC swooped in and scooped up the long-running comedy show for a sixth season.
Stay toit, fam.
