Brooklyn Nine-Nine is ending with the upcoming eighth season! NBC announced on Thursday that sitcom centered around cops starring Andy Samberg and Andre Braugher will come to a close! The final 10 episodes are set to premiere in 2021-2022.
The creator of the show Dan Groor said in a statement, “I’m so thankful to NBC and Universal Television for allowing us to give these characters and our fans the ending they deserve. When Mike Schur and I first pitched the pilot episode to Andy, he said, ‘I’m in, but I think the only way to this story is over exactly 153 episodes,’ which was crazy because that was exactly the number Mike and 1 had envisioned.”
“I fed incredibly lucky to have worked with this amazing cast and crew for eight seasons. They are not only among the most talented people in the business, they. are all good human beings who have become a family. 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. 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,” he said.
“The way I see it, if this is to be our last ride then let us go out in a blaze of glory.” pic.twitter.com/HBVVV5cRJc
