The writers of 'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' are taking stock of the show - amid the police backlash in the US.

According to Terry Crews, the writers were four eps in when they decided to throw out what they've been working on, to take the show in a different direction:

“We’ve had a lot of somber talks about it and deep conversations and we hope through this we’re going to make something that will be truly groundbreaking this year,” the actor told Access Hollywood.

“We have an opportunity and we plan to use it in the best way possible. Our showrunner Dan Goor — they had four episodes all ready to go and they just threw them in the trash.  We have to start over. Right now we don’t know which direction it’s going to go in.”

Terry Crews didn't say whether the eps got scrapped completely or if they’ll be included at a point later on in Season 8.

It's great to know that our favourite sitcom's having important conversations about the impact of the story they're trying to tell and represent on-screen.
