We're sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but it appears our favorite detectives are turning in their badges very soon. After 8 successful years and a loyal army of fans, Brooklyn Nine-Nine is officially coming to an end. But don't worry. No one's going anywhere just yet.
According to NBC, the 99th precinct will be closing its doors once and for all after the upcoming 8th season. But perhaps there's good reason for that. "When... I first pitched the pilot episode to Andy [Samberg], he said, 'I'm in, but.... the only way to tell this story is over exactly 153 episodes,'" executive producer Dan Goor revealed.
Sure enough, endless crime busts and Halloween heists later, Brooklyn's finest squad will be doing exactly that. And you can bet we're not feeling too noice about it. Seriously, who else is going to keep the bad guys off of the streets if not Scully and Hitchcock, right? In all honesty, we're going to miss our friends down at the 99 a whole lot.
But we're not the only ones. "Love our show and thankful to everyone who helped bring these extraordinary people into my orbit," Joe Lo Truglio - a.k.a Charles Boyle - gushed on Twitter. "Charles Boyle changed my life…. To the best fans, we ❤️ you. You're the real sexy train, and don't leave the station quite yet!"
Well, when exactly can we bid farewell to Charles and his "station?" Unfortunately, we might be waiting a while. The final 10-episode season has been pushed to the 2021-2022 TV season. In other words? The earliest Boyle and co. will be gracing our screens this Fall.
Nonetheless, we'll be waiting right here - binge-watching all our favorite Brooklyn Nine-Nine episodes. "Ending the show was a difficult decision, but ultimately, we felt it was the best way to honor the characters... and our viewers," Dan Goor continued. "Some people will be disappointed... but honestly? I'm grateful it lasted this long. Title of my... tape."
