There is some very sad news for Brooklyn Nine-Nine fans. The series is coming to an end after eight seasons.

This time the series probably won’t be saved. We all remember what it was like back in 2018 when the show was canceled by FOX only to be renewed by NBC two days later. The cancellation was shocking and disappointing news, and we knew there was so much more to tell.

Well, the creators got the chance. But all good things do eventually need to come to an end, and that’s the case for the Nine-Nine. The good news is the writers can go out with a bang!

The ending isn’t NBC’s decision. It’s a decision from the creators of the show, and we can respect that. It’s why I don’t think anyone will save the series this time, because there’s going to be nothing to save without the original creators behind it.

There is a bit more bad news to come with the Brooklyn Nine-Nine ending news.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine Season 8 will be the shortest season to date

We knew there was a risk of the eighth season being reduced. Almost all shows are looking at cutting their seasons shorter than normal since they started filming late and there have been delays here and there.

However, none have reduced their episode count as dramatically as our favorite cop comedy. The season will have just 10 episodes.

Yep, it’s more like a streaming show!

There still isn’t a premiere date for the eighth season. Part of this is because there have been so many delays in writing this final season. The show scrapped its four episodes it had written in the wake of George Floyd’s murder, and Andy Samberg later confirmed that the writers were struggling with where to go. How do you make a comedy about cops with the world we’re in?

Brooklyn Nine-Nine has never been a stranger to systemic racism. Terry Crews’s character, Sergeant Jeffers was a victim of systemic racism. When he went to Captain Holt for support if he went up against the cop who racial profiled him, Holt surprisingly refused to. In the end, Holt realized that he had to stand up for what was right, and that meant supporting his sergeant.

The show is being pushed to the 2021-2022 season, according to TVLine.
