Season Five Of Brooklyn Nine-Nine Has Dropped Onto Netflix Today

Good news for fans of Brooklyn Nine-Nine... well, the ones based in the UK, anyway: season five of the top cop comedy is touching down on UK Netflix today. Get ready to binge.

To be fair, the news that this would be coming to UK screens isn't new. In fact, Netflix UK announced it a while back in a quite bizarre fashion.

Replying to a super-fan of the show called Darcy, the streaming service confirmed the show was coming in March. The unusual thing was that it looks like she'd been asking them every single day for ages.

Eventually, the streaming giant let her announce the good news. They said: "Darcy has been asking when b99 s5 is coming basically every day for the last few months, so we decided to let her give you the good news..."

Darcy then announced: "Clear your schedule because Brooklyn Nine-Nine season 5 is coming to @NetflixUK on March 8th!

"Very noice!"

Excellent fan engagement there, Netflix. Well done.

It's worth remembering that this almost didn't happen at all. The show was ruthlessly cancelled after the fifth season. Fox's loss was - in the end - NBC's gain.

After the show was dropped, the latter broadcaster stepped in and picked up the show for season six. It looks like a good decision after reviews for the season, which started earlier this year, have been largely positive.

Fans of the show can also rest easy knowing that there won't be a repeat of the cliffhanger that occurs at the end of season five. That's not a spoiler by the way, as I'm not going to tell you what it actually is.

They've learned from that mistake now, after the show was unceremoniously dropped off the aforementioned cliff.

Showrunner Dan Goor said that after season six they will take nothing for granted and want to leave fans in a decent place.

Goor told TV Guide: "We've learned we'll never again do the kind of cliffhangers we did after seasons two, three and four because were we to be cancelled after those seasons, I think it would have been really disappointing for our fans."

However, it does also look as if the wheels are already in motion for season seven. A video came out the other day announcing that fact in front of the whole cast, who were understandably delighted.

One thing that's gonna change is that Chelsea Perretti (who plays Gina Linetti) will no longer be a part of the show. Season six is her last.

Oh well, we'll just have to make do with Andy Samberg, Terry Crews and the rest. It's not so bad after all.
