Brooklyn Nine-Nine Has Officially Ended After Eight Seasons

Fans of Brooklyn Nine-Nine are devastated after the final episode of the final season aired on American television.

Titled 'The Last Day', the cast held a fitting send off for a series that has been beloved all over the world.

The cop comedy programme survived being cancelled on the Fox network back in 2018 and NBC gave an extra three seasons.

But this time round it really is the end for everyone at Brooklyn's 99th Precinct of the New York City Police Department.

The final season has been truly incredible, with Rotten Tomatoes listing the last instalment at 100 per cent, which is no small task.

The critical consensus praised the show for tackling 'big topics with poise in a fittingly complicated final season that attempts to meet the moment without losing its sense of humor'.

Seasons Two, Four, Five and Six were also handed 100 per cent ratings.

In preparation for Season 8, writers threw out most of the scripts last year when the Black Lives Matter movement had a resurgence due to George Floyd's murder.

The cast and crew thought it was fitting to reflect the public's attitudes towards police at this delicate time and decided to rewrite the scripts.

Speaking on Variety's Awards Circuit podcast, Andy Samberg (who plays Jake Peralta) was proud to be making a TV show that was reacting to current world events.

He said: "Our characters need to examine their roles in the world. They're going to be forced to look in the mirror and see who they're complicit with."

While loads of people would have loved for the series to keep going for more seasons, co-creator Dan Goor reckons it's the perfect time to say goodbye.

He explained: "Ultimately, we felt it was the best way to honour the characters, the story and our viewers. I know some people will be disappointed it's ending so soon, but honestly, I'm grateful it lasted this long."

They've managed to rack up quite the trophy cabinet since the show premiered back in 2013.

They won the Golden Globe Award for Best Television Series: Musical or Comedy in 2014, with lead star Andy Samberg winning the Golden Globe Award for Best Actor - Television Series Musical or Comedy on the same night.

Andre Braugher, who plays Captain Holt, has been nominated for an Emmy Award four times, and has won the Critics' Choice Television Award for Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series twice.

The programme also won a GLAAD Media Award for Outstanding Comedy Series for its approach to LGBTQIA+ stories and issues.

The cast has been invited onto the Late Night with Seth Meyers programme after the final episode airs to talk about the series.
