Prepare to bid farewell to Brooklyn Nine-Nine. The hit comedy series will officially be coming to an end after season 8.
NBC announced on Thursday (February 11) that the hit NBC comedy series would officially be coming to a close.
Specifically, Brooklyn Nine-Nine will conclude with its upcoming eighth season.
NBC famously saved the hit comedy series from cancellation after Fox initially pulled the plug back in 2018 after just five seasons.
In a statement announcing the end of Brooklyn Nine-Nine, executive producer Dan Goor touched on the fact that both he and fellow creator Mike Schur are incredibly grateful to be able to give B99’s beloved characters the sendoff they deserve.
“When Mike Schur and I first pitched the pilot episode to Andy [Samberg], he said, ‘I’m in, but I think the only way to tell this story is over exactly 153 episodes,’ which was crazy because that was exactly the number Mike and I had envisioned. I feel incredibly lucky to have worked with this amazing cast and crew for eight seasons,” said Goor via a statement according to Variety.
“But most of all, I feel lucky that we have had the best fans in the world. Fans who literally saved us from cancellation. Fans who fill us with joy,” continued the executive producer. “Ending the show was a difficult decision, but ultimately, we felt it was the best way to honor the characters, the story and our viewers. I know some people will be disappointed it’s ending so soon, but honestly, I’m grateful it lasted this long. Title of my sex tape.”
While the end of Brooklyn Nine-Nine is near, fans will have a bit of a wait before they can experience the final 10 episodes of the series.
Brooklyn Nine-Nine season 8 is currently slated to debut via NBC as part of the networks’ 2021-2022 television season.
