As production on the 8th and final season of NBC's Brooklyn Nine-Nine begins, the cast is celebrating their reunion with selfies on set! "Ba ba ba back in the Nine Nine!!!" Melissa Fumero, known in the series as Amy Santiago, posted to Instagram.
The 8th season will include 10 action-packed episodes, making it a shorter season than the rest. The sitcom began in 2013, and after 5 seasons, was picked up by NBC. After taking a step back in 2020 to keep their police show out of hot water, the cast of Brooklyn Nine-Nine is officially back and ready to take over the screen.
Executive producer, Dan Goor, expressed gratitude to NBC and Universal Studios while also hinting at his sadness over the show's completion. "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." And the cast seems to share the same idea.
While the B99 team may be sad about the show's wrap, everyone seems to be focused on filming the upcoming season! Stephanie Beatriz (Rosa Diaz) shared a picture on the show's Instagram page featuring herself smiling through their masks. She called the photo moment a "treat," and we couldn't agree more!
While the actors gather to bring season 8 to life, Fumero has a message for fans. Talking about her character, she Tweeted the experience, "Has been one of the greatest joys and honor of my life…I am so grateful to be able to take a victory lap with our beloved cast and crew." But that's not all.
"To our amazing fans, we love you," the actress continued. "No tears for now, we still have a whole season to shoot!" Thus, we'll follow Melissa's advice and focus on soaking up all that we can of Brooklyn Nine-Nine's last season! If you need a moment of comical relief to grieve about the show, look no further.
The hilarious Joe Truglio posted a timelapse getting back into character for filming, and if his facial expressions don't make you laugh, we don't know what will! After re-watching several times, we agree with @nbcbrooklyn99's comment, "It was the moment in the corner for us," too! Welcome back, Boyle and the rest of the squad!
