Brooklyn Nine-Nine will officially come to an end with the long-delayed and shortened season 8. The popular sitcom originally aired on Fox for its first five seasons before getting canceled and then revived by NBC. Fans of the show started petitions and an online campaign to save it, which worked out really well. The cast and crew were amazed by the faith of the Brooklyn Nine-Nine fan community. However, it is now time to officially say goodbye again.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine season 8 has just been pushed to the 2021-2022 TV season. While the show coming to an end news is bad enough on its own, fans now only have ten episodes to look forward to. However, season 7 only consisted of 13 episodes, which was down from 18 and 22 in the previous seasons. "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 [Samberg], 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."

Dan Goor went on to say, "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." The family element of the show was not lost on viewers, who enjoyed watching the chemistry evolve over time. A lot has changed for the sitcom since it originally aired in September of 2013.

Like the rest of the cast and crew, Dan Goor wanted to thank the Brooklyn Nine-Nine fan base for all of their dedication over the years. "But most of all, I feel lucky that we have had the best fans in the world. Fans who literally saved us from cancellation," said Goor. "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." It is pretty amazing that the sitcom was able to survive a cancelation and then get bigger success at a new network.

As for when Brooklyn Nine-Nine will start filming, that is unclear. However, Andy Samberg recently revealed that they will be getting back to work "soon." The actor says, "It's scheduled for the fairly near future for us to return. There are a few factors going on - the surge in the (COVID) numbers in Los Angeles is a big one." He went on to add, "There is a continuity to the people and the stories and the set becomes its own organism and you don't want to disrupt that. I think you can (lose a bit of rhythm), and we'll find that out when we come back." We'll just have to wait and see how the gang decides to end the show. The news was originally announced by {|the official Brooklyn Nine-Nine Twitter account.
