Almost everything in the world may have ground to a halt, but the juggernaut that is Brooklyn Nine-Nine is still moving forwards.
The seventh series of the cop-based comedy is currently airing in the UK on E4 (you can catch up on All 4) and the writers have already begun putting pen to paper on season eight.
The show's co-creator Dan Goor shared the uplifting news on Twitter, explaining that the team were working remotely and had begun making progress on the next season.
I'm happy to announce that the #Brooklyn99 season 8 writers room started (remotely) today. The fact that the show has endured for this long is a testament to our amazing actors, crew, and writers, and to our fans, who are the best in the world. Thank you! Stay safe! Nine-Nine!

Fans would love to know what ideas they have in mind for the next season, though it would come as no surprise if the words 'get Bruce Willis' came up in the remote writers' room.
Andy Samberg - who stars as Jake Peralta - has pleaded on numerous occasions for the Die Hard actor to make a cameo on the show.
Asked by Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show in February which dream guest he'd love to have on the show, Samberg replied: "For us, there's one. My character is obsessed with Die Hard, so we've long said that getting Bruce Willy would be like a huge thing.
"I mean, I've appealed many times for this, I think maybe he's like waiting for the end to surprise us and shock the world, or, he hates me."
As the actor and comedian said, he has made the plea before to no avail.
Back in 2018, the 41-year-old looked straight down Entertainment Tonight's camera at San Diego Comic-Con and begged Willis to appear on the show.

He said: "I know we've asked him like 10 times already, but I personally haven't.
"Hey Bruce - look, my character Jake Peralta on the show Brooklyn Nine-Nine, which is moderately successful, is obsessed with Die Hard and thinks that your character John McClane is the coolest character in the history of cinema.
"I, Andy Samberg, I'm a comedian, also feel that way. If you'd come be on the show, even if it's for one sentence, like a cool cameo, like we bump on each other on the street and you go, 'Excuse me,' and then walk away.
"If you had it in your schedule to breeze by just for one shot, I think it would mean a lot to the show, to the fan base."
Who knows, perhaps season eight is the season of Brucey?
