Brooklyn Nine-Nine Season 8 Confirmed For 2021 Release

Everyone's favourite cop comedy show Brooklyn Nine-Nine has been renewed for an eighth season.

The series announced the big news on social media in the best way they knew how: via Captain Holt's emphatic, resounding and positive voice.

A post on Twitter said: "*Capt. Holt voice* We're in a state of total euphoria."

Naturally, the update has sent fans wild, with many posting comments of pure Capt. Holt joy.

The show's eighth season will premiere next year, however NBC is keeping tight lipped on when exactly we will be able to feast our eyes and ears on the new material.

We could be waiting a while though as Terry Crews, who plays the incredible Sergeant Terry Jeffords on the show, revealed the writers had to start all over again with the scripts.

The current tension between police and US citizens is reaching a boiling point and the resurgence of the Black Lives Matter movement has prompted the show to try to represent the current climate in the script.

Speaking to Access Daily, Crews said: "Our showrunner Dan Goor, they had four episodes all ready to go, and they just threw them in the trash. We have to start over. Right now, we don't know which direction it's going to go in.

"We've had a lot of sombre talks about it and deep conversations, and we hope through this, we're going to make something that will be truly groundbreaking this year. We have an opportunity, and we plan to use it in the best way possible."

The actor has previously highlighted the need for B99 to address the situation that has unfolded in America since the death of George Floyd. When he was asked whether the eighth season would reflect current events, Terry said the team would do their best.

"Definitely. We all got on a Zoom call just the other day because of what is happening in this country," he told Seth Meyers via video call.

"We are witnessing so many abuses of power. We had some sombre talks and some really eye-opening conversations about how to handle this new season."

It comes after the cast and creators announced they would be donating USD $100,000 (£78,541) to support Black Lives Matter protesters.

So, we just have to wait a couple more months (maybe even a year) and then we will get to see what they've been cooking up.
