Back in November, Brooklyn Nine-Nine fans were blessed with the news that the much-loved cop comedy was being renewed for an eighth season.
We were ecstatic, considering the show was pulled back from the brink of death in 2018 when NBC picked up the series for sixth season just a day after Fox cancelled it.
And while we're still only midway through the seventh season, that hasn't stopped us from speculating about what's to come in the next instalment...
So, Brooklyn Nine-Nine is *definitely* returning for season 8?
Yes! The show announced the news on their Twitter on 14th November- well before the premiere of season seven, which is landed this month.
Its cast were surprised with the amazing news which was revealed to them by producers in a video shared on Brooklyn Nine-Nine's Twitter page.
"Good things come to those who w8. The #Brooklyn99 squad will be coming back for Season 8 on NBC!," it tweeted.
So, good news: it's 100 per cent coming.
When is Brooklyn Nine-Nine season 8 coming?
While diehard fans will know there's no exact release date yet, but there's no reason why we can't give an educated guess.
Based on previous airing schedules, we're looking at getting season 8 between February and April 2021.
Generally the series run on a year gap, but there was a longer 16 month gap between season 5 and 6 - no doubt owning to its changeover in distributor.
Who will be in Brooklyn Nine-Nine?
The police comedy - currently in its seventh season - follows a diverse team of detectives in the fictional 99th Precinct of the New York City Police Department in Brooklyn including the talented Jake Peralta (Andy Samberg), Rosa Diaz (Stephanie Beatriz), Terry Jeffords (Terry Crews), Amy Santiago (Melissa Fumero), Charles Boyle (Joe Lo Truglio) and Gina Linetti (Chelsea Peretti).
Of course, casting hasn't been announced by Netflix yet, but it's pretty indicative who will be back based on who was celebrating the renewal. Yes, we are super sleuths.
Melissa Fumero, who plays Amy Santiago, tweeted a photo of herself with the cast, including Andy Samberg, Stephanie Beatriz, Terry Crews, Joe Lo Truglio, Chelsea Peretti, Andrew Braugher and Dirk Blocker, holding up the number eight with their fingers in celebration.
Sooo, here's betting they'll all be back.
What will happen in Brooklyn Nine-Nine season 8?
While fans still don't know how season 7 ends, it's likely the basis of season 8 will be kept tightly under wraps for a while. Still, we can say with a lot of certainty that it'll continue to follow the misadventures if the NYPD's 99th police department.
We're a long way off, but we cannot wait.
Brooklyn Nine-Nine season 7 is currently airing on NBC in the States, and is expected to air on E4 in the UK around March 2020 - though the date hasn't been confirmed.
Currently, you can watch Brooklyn Nine-Nine seasons 1 to 5 on Netflix, with season 6 landing on the steamer on 28th March 2020.
