Brooklyn Nine-Nine Ending with Delayed Eighth Season

The squad of the 99 have reached the end of their watch. Brooklyn Nine-Nine, the long-running Fox-turned-NBC sitcom that has garnered critical acclaim and a cult following, will end with its next season. The series hasn't been a strong performer in Live+Same-Day ratings, but is a massive performer on digital platforms that has made it one of the most profitable shows on NBC. After Fox canceled the series back in 2018, after a five-season run, NBC quickly saved the show, which was produced by Universal from the very start. It saw a small rise in the ratings in its first NBC season, though by its second NBC season, it became a weaker performer (though still solid by NBC comedy standards). Season eight was set to premiere in fall 2020, but was delayed due to numerous reasons, including having to re-write the season to address police brutality amid the summer 2020 Black Lives Matter protests. The eighth and final season, which will run for only ten episodes, has been delayed even further now and will air in the 2021-22 television season. This announcement is part in a line of important, long-running NBC comedies to end, following the 2020 finales of The Good Place and Will & Grace and Superstore, which ends its run in March 2021. Brooklyn Nine-Nine stars Andy Samberg, Andre Braugher, Stephanie Beatriz, Melissa Fumero and Joe Lo Truglio star in the series.
