Brooklyn Nine-Nine to end with eighth season

Brooklyn Nine-Nine will end with its upcoming eighth season, which has been delayed until the 2021/22 TV season, NBC announced today.

The show was renewed by NBC for an eighth season in November 2019 which was originally set to air in 2020/21. TV production has been widely affected by the pandemic, with many shows starting their seasons later and with fewer episodes produced due to shutdowns. The final season will contain ten episodes, the shortest season yet.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine first premiered in 2013 on the FOX network, where it ran for five seasons before being cancelled in 2018. NBC, whose studio arm Universal Television produces the show, stepped in to pick the show up for a sixth season which aired in 2019. Brooklyn Nine-Nine's seventh season aired last year.

"I'm so thankful to NBC and Universal Television for allowing us to give these characters and our fans the ending they deserve," said executive producer Dan Goor. "When Mike Schur and I first pitched the pilot episode to Andy, 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. 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."
