NBC's 'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' to End After 8 Seasons

NBC has today announced that the upcoming eighth season of the original comedy series Brooklyn Nine-Nine will be its last. The comedy will conclude its run after airing five seasons on FOX and three seasons on NBC.

The eighth and final season will consist of 10 episodes - its lowest episode count ever. Moreover, the final season will be delayed and eventually air during the 2021-22 broadcast season.

The comedy stars Andy Samberg, Andre Braugher, Terry Crews, Melissa Fumero, Stephanie Beatriz, Joe Lo Truglio, Dirk Blocker and Joel McKinnon Miller.

Dan Goor and Michael Schur created the comedy. They executive produce with David Miner, Luke Del Tredici and David Phillips. Universal Television, Dr. Goor Productions, Fremulon and 3 Arts Entertainment produce.

"I'm so thankful to NBC and Universal Television for allowing us to give these characters and our fans the ending they deserve," said Goor. "When Mike Schur and I first pitched the pilot episode to Andy, 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. 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. But most of all, I feel lucky that we have had the best fans in the world. Fans who literally saved us from cancellation. 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."
