Fans of procedural sitcom Brooklyn Nine-Nine were devastated when it was announced that season 8 would be its last. The final season has finally gotten a release date. The squad’s last round of adventures will begin on Thursday, August 12 (the week after the Olympics end) at 7 p.m. CT with back-to-back episodes. The show is set to continue in that regular time slot all season, with 2 episodes to air for four additional (though not consecutive) weeks.
Brooklyn Nine-Nine stars Andy Samberg (Jake Peralta), Andre Braugher (Raymond Holt), Melissa Fumero (Amy Santiago), Terry Crews (Terry Jeffords), Joe Lo Truglio (Charles Boyle), Stephanie Beatriz (Rosa Diaz), Joel McKinnon Miller (Scully), and Dirk Blocker (Hitchcock). The show follows the members of Brooklyn’s 99th police precinct and their shenanigans as the plethora of personalities interact. Brooklyn Nine-Nine has been defying the odds for years, making a comeback after getting canceled on FOX after 5 seasons and being picked back up on NBC — something that makes it especially hard to see it go.
The following description describes the events that are to take place during the show’s final season.
“Jake and the squad must try to balance their personal lives and their professional lives over the course of a very difficult year.”
While we’ll be sad to hear the cast sound the cry “Nine-Nine!” for the last time, we can’t wait until the show comes back for what’s sure to be an amazing final season. Brooklyn Nine-Nine will return on August 12. Stay tuned for more updates. Make sure to check out the short clip detailing season 8 below.
