'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' Renewed For Season 8 After Being Saved From Cancellation
Over a year and a half later, the show is positively thriving: it's just been renewed for an eighth season!
The show announced the news of their Twitter on Thursday (14th November) - well before the premiere of season seven, which is due to land in February.
Its cast were surprised with the amazing news 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.
The police comedy 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).
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.
The sixth season, which aired in January, saw the detectives seek to expose new Commissioner John Kelly for illegally wiretapping the population by staging an arrest for a fake kidnapping.
The seventh season is confirmed to air on NBC in America on 6th February and will be comprised of 13 episodes.
As of yet there's no word on when season eight of Brooklyn Nine-Nine will be hitting screens, but it likely won't be until 2021.
Still, we've got a lot to keep us going in the meantime.
Seasons one to five of Brooklyn Nine-Nine are available on Netflix now.
