Netflix has finally announced that the beloved US cop comedy series Brooklyn Nine-Nine will arrive on the platform in April. Among a few other delayed titles in Netflix’s on-demand menu, Brooklyn Nine-Nine is arriving over a year late. Usually, the comedy’s latest seasons have been added between January and March. However, the eighth and final season of the sitcom, which aired in the US in 2021, never arrived in 2022.
This delay is most likely because the series’ original network, NBC, had exclusive rights to feature the series on its specialised streaming service, Peacock. Fortunately, enough time has now passed for the 10-episode finale to be added to Netflix. It will arrive on April 20th. “Hmpfh! Took you long enough,” one user wrote, with another adding: “About time!!!”
“Took long enough, the show ended in 2021,” one user stated.
Brooklyn Nine-Nine first aired in 2013 and has run for eight successful seasons with the beloved cast, which includes Andy Samberg, Melissa Fumero, Stephanie Beatriz, Andre Braugher, Terry Crews and Joe Lo Truglio.
The show initially ran for five seasons on Fox before cancellation but was revived for a further three by NBC. The cast paid tribute to the series after the final episode aired in September 2022. Crews, who plays Terry Jeffords, wrote: “What an adventure!! This show has meant so much to me over the years and I know it means a lot to all of you. Thank you, lots of love, and NINE-NINE FOREVER!!!!.”
Fumero added: “This finale was made with a lot of love, a lot of joy, a lot of laughter, and even some tears. We hope you love it as much as we do. Nine Nine Forever.”
“This final episode was made with all you fans in mind,” wrote Lo Truglio. “We’re so grateful for our time with you. Hope you dig it.”
Braugher wrote: “What can I say? Words cannot express how much you all mean to me and how proud I am that #Brooklyn99 means so much to all of you. It’s been nothing but a pleasure and I thank you from the bottom of my heart.”
