The wait is almost over, and the final season of Brooklyn Nine-Nine begins to loom in the distance. The beloved Dan Goor show has confirmed that the show’s eighth season will be its last and will air in August.
The show has been slated to pick up the “coveted” post-Olympics slot and begin airing after August 8. Brooklyn Nine-Nine is one of the most-watched sitcoms around, and the final season will be highly anticipated by audiences everywhere.
“I’m so thankful to NBC and Universal Television for allowing us to give these characters and our fans the ending they deserve. I feel very lucky to have worked with this amazing cast and crew for eight seasons,” co-creator Goor wrote on Twitter following the announcement.
The slot afforded to Brooklyn Nine-Nine shows just how highly valued it is. Susan Rovner of NBCUniversal Television shared: “It will launch in August, coming out of the Summer Olympics, which is a coveted slot. We can think of nothing more deserving than giving it to the final season of Brooklyn Nine-Nine.
“This is a beloved show and we wanted to give it a slot where it had access to the biggest possible audience.”
In more recent news, Terry Crews, who stars in the show, announced that episodes from season eight had to be re-written following the impact of the Black Lives Matter movement: “We’ve had a lot of sombre talks about it and deep conversations,” Crews said.
“And we hope through this, we’re going to make something that will be truly groundbreaking this year.”
