Final Season Of Brooklyn Nine-Nine Will Land On August 12

Get ready to say goodbye fans because the final season of Brooklyn Nine-Nine has a premiere date.

NBC has revealed on Instagram that we can expect to see the last episodes of the hilarious series on August 12.

The network explained how they were excited to deliver this finale once the Tokyo Olympics is over earlier in the month.

Susan Rovner, from NBCUniversal Television, said: "It will launch in August, coming out of the Summer Olympics, which is a coveted slot. We can think of nothing more deserving than giving it to the final season of Brooklyn Nine-Nine.

"This is a beloved show and we wanted to give it a slot where it had access to the biggest possible audience."

The show, which stars Andy Samberg, Terry Crews and Joe Lo Truglio - among others - will come to an end this time out.

That ending was confirmed by the show's co-creator Dan Goor earlier this year.

On Twitter, Goor wrote: "I'm so thankful to NBC and Universal Television for allowing us to give these characters and our fans the ending they deserve. I feel very lucky to have worked with this amazing cast and crew for eight seasons."

Speaking exclusively to LADbible, Lo Truglio - who plays Charles Boyle - explained how the series plans to tackle some big issues facing society right now, including the Black Lives Matter movement.

He said: "We've dipped out toe in the water with more serious issues - Terry's racial profiling, Rosa's bisexuality, sexism - so it made it easier for us to have that conversation about Black Lives Matter.

"We've shown that we can do comedy, but we can also tackle those big social issues too."

Last year, Terry Crews also confirmed that every episode from the forthcoming eighth series had to be rewritten in light of the BLM movement, which came to prominence after the murder of George Floyd in Minneapolis in May 2020.

Crews explained: "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."

The final season will consist of 10 episodes and will mark the end of a slightly unusual path for the show.

It was briefly cancelled by Fox after season five, before a fervent fan campaign showed its true popularity, leading NBC to take up the reins from then on.
