scandal 12/02/2021

It's official, Brooklyn Nine-Nine is coming to an end and there is only one appropriate way to describe how we feel right now:

NBD announced today that the latest season, which was delayed due to COVID-19, has not only been shortened to just 10 episodes, but it will also be it's final run.

"I still remember the palpable excitement that night in 2018 when we announced Brooklyn Nine-Nine would be returning to its rightful home at NBC," said Lisa Katz, President of Scripted Content, NBCUniversal Television and Streaming.

We've always loved these characters and the way they make us laugh while also masterfully weaving in storylines that make us reflect as well. A big thank you to our wonderful partners -- Dan Goor, the writers, producers and the incredibly talented cast and crew -- for a comedy whose legacy will stand the test of time."

Executive Producer Dan Goor also spoke on the great run the show has had saying "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."

Speaking of the sad news that this season wil be the last, Goor perfectly signed his message off with "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."
