Chelsea Peretti Announces She's Leaving 'Brooklyn Nine-Nine'
One minute it was cancelled, then it was renewed for a sixth season, then it was reported that it would be extended with even more episodes. So it's no wonder really that someone was going to leave the show - they probably can't keep up.
And the person in question - Chelsea Peretti, who played Gina Linetti.
She announced the news today on Twitter telling her 1.4 million fans: "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, winky face emoji, heart emoji. 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."
So, don't be too worried because if we got anything from this it's that she definitely hinted that she might be back.

Peretti, 40, has been a regular on the series from the very beginning, filming a total of 112 episodes.
The show's co-creator, Dan Goor said in a statement on Twitter: "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."
Brooklyn Nine-Nine has had somewhat of a rollercoaster ride (that is still going on by the looks of things) - first of all it was cancelled by FOX but was then given a last minute reprieve when it was picked up by NBC, and now the newest season has been extended.
Granted, it will still be shorter than all the other seasons - it will have around 18 episodes, up from 13, whereas other seasons have had around 22 or 23 episodes - but that still has to be better than the alternative.
The newest season will be out - as far as anyone knows - at some point during the mid-season of 2019.
