America’s favorite 99th Precinct of the New York City Police Department in Brooklyn is heading back to the screens for one last time for its final season.
You read it right; the top-rated, award-winning show will retire from its duties after the premiere of season 8.
On May 20, 2021, NBC dropped a teaser for season 8, teasing its fans for one last joyride.
Being dropped by Fox in 2018, Brooklyn 99 had such a fan following among its viewers that they ran a campaign for its revival and with various celebrities joining their support. NBC
Chairman Robert Greenblatt then announced that their network has picked up the show and is thrilled with its addition.
Brooklyn 99 is among the very few shows which have garnered praise from both the critics and the viewers, leading them to win 15 awards out of 81 nominations over the years.
Release Date of Season 8
In November 2019, NBC announced that they had renewed the series for the 8th season, but in February 2021, they confirmed that it would be their final season.
So why a 16 months gap? First, the show’s production was hit severely due to a surge in COVID-19 cases in Los Angeles, California, in late 2020, delaying the shooting of the much-awaited show.
However, on May 14, 2021, NBC announced that the show would return to the screens on August 12, 2021, after the 2021 Summer Olympics.
The final season would consist of back-to-back episodes on Thursdays at 8 p.m. ET with a total of 10 episodes—a NOICE send-off for their fans.
Those who haven’t watched Brooklyn 99 can catch up with the series on Netflix.
