Brooklyn Nine-Nine UK Air Date Announced And It's Soon

It's good news for fans of Brooklyn Nine-Nine as UK air date for season six has finally be confirmed...and there's even better news, it's just over two weeks away.

Yup, fans of Jake Peralta and Amy Santiago don't have too long to wait, with E4 revealing today that it will be landing the highly-anticipated (and almost axed) sixth season on the 28 March and 9pm.

Lucky viewers across the pond were able to watch the sixth season back in January on NBC, which swooped in to rescue the show after it was dropped by Fox last year - but until now, UK fans have had to make-do with watching and re-watching seasons one to five on Netflix.

Trailers for the show began dropping last year and delighting fans, who were happy to see the show saved.

But it will be bitter-sweet for some as although we'll have Andy Samberg and co back on our screens, it's already been confirmed that Chelsea Perretti - who plays Gina Linetti - leaves the show this season.

Back in October, while fans were still celebrating the fact the show had been picked up by NBC, Perretti announced her departure on social media, writing: "B99 fans. Hiiiiiiiiiiii. Chelsea Peretti, here. I won't be doing a full season of Brooklyn Nine Nine in Season 6.

"But that doesn't mean I won't ever be back. I want to thank you for the hours you spent watching Gina be Gina: confident, idiotic-but-smart, pithy, and infused with rhythm and cell-phone radiation. It is hard for me to know exactly what to say."

While the show's co-creator, Dan Goor tweeted: "From the moment Mike Schur and I decided to create this show, we wanted Chelsea Peretti be a part of it, and she always will be.

"While it's sad to see a member of the family leave, we are so proud of Chelsea and excited for what she does next. Also, I know for a fact this isn't the last we'll see of Gina Linetti."

When her final scenes (for now, at least) aired over in the US she quickly began trending with fans using the hashtag #ThankYouChelsea. In response to all the love from fans, Chelsea posted:

And the Brooklyn Nine-Nine official Twitter account shared her final 'grand entrance':

Fans shouldn't feel too down about Gina's absence, though, as Goor also promised that this season is the best yet.

He told the Boston Herald: "The mandate from NBC all along has been, 'We know this show. We love this show. That's why we picked up this show. Please keep making the same show'.

"I don't want to say it's the same show. I think it's going to be even better this year."

Well, I can't wait.
