“Brooklyn Nine-Nine” to End After Eight Seasons

Joe Lo Truglio, Andy Samberg, and Stephanie Beatriz in "Brooklyn Nine-Nine"

Jake Peralta, Captain Holt, and the rest of the Brooklyn Nine-Nine squad took us on many amazing adventures together, and the last one is underway. This beloved workplace sitcom will end its run after eight glorious seasons.

Since its premiere in 2013, Brooklyn Nine-Nine followed the trials and tribulations of the detectives working at a fictional NYPD precinct in Brooklyn. Despite its unrealistic portrayal of low enforcement, this show became a huge hit with viewers and critics alike and it won a Golden Globe for the best comedy series.

Fans of the show may be saddened by the news, but Dan Goor admitted this was exactly the number of episodes he had in mind when he created Brooklyn Nine-Nine with Mike Schur. In a statement, he thanked their partners at NBC and Universal Television for making it happen.

“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,” explained Goor.

The final season of Brooklyn Nine-Nine still doesn’t have an official release date, but it’s expected to premiere later this year.
