After news broke yesterday that Brooklyn Nine-Nine would be bowing out with an eighth season, fans reckon NBC bosses are missing a trick - as they've suggested the show should end on season nine, episode nine.
Last night, we posted the news that the forthcoming eighth season would be the comedy's final outing, following a second wind with NBC after being cancelled by Fox.
But after previously managing to save the show through sheer online noise, viewers think another campaign might be in order.
Commenting on LADbible's Facebook post, one person wrote: "Petition for them to make it till Season 9 Episode 9."
Another fan of the show agreed, saying: "I wanted season 9 episode 9 to be their last."
A third added: "It should end at 9 seasons AT LEAST FOR RESPECT FOR THE NINE NINE! Let's blow up the internet to make season 9 happen! Like how we blew up the internet when they cancelled it and brought it back on the air!"
And over on Twitter, the general consensus was the same.
Brooklyn nine nine should end on season 9, ep 9, and all of their last words should be NINE NINE!

One viewer raged: "Why aren't they ending Brooklyn Nine-Nine, with 9 seasons on the 9th episode CMAN NBC!!!!!"
Another added: "Brooklyn Nine-Nine should end on season 9, ep 9, and all of their last words should be NINE NINE!"
Joe Lo Truglio, who plays Charles Boyle, told LADbible the writers had decided that 'all the stories had been told' after 153 episodes, saying: "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."
Season eight started shooting in December, but has been put on hold due to the pandemic.
However, the cast, crew and writers wanted it to be a 'victory lap', with Lo Truglio adding: "It was not unexpected.
"NBC couldn't have been more supportive, but it was our decision.
"I'm going to miss the cast and crew. It will be a real gut punch."
