Season eight of Brooklyn Nine-Nine has started filming.
Joe Lo Truglio, who plays Charles Boyle in the series, shared a photo from the set to his Instagram account.
In the snap, he is stood alongside co-stars Stephanie Beatriz (Detective Rosa Diaz) Melissa Fumero (Amy Santiago) and Terry Crews, who plays Lieutenant Terry Jeffords.
The caption reads: "We're home. Season 8."
News that the hit cop series was returning for another outing was announced earlier this year, although with the global pandemic still ongoing, it has made production more difficult than in times gone by.
The exciting news was confirmed on the show's official Twitter account.
It read: "*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 has been keeping tight-lipped - probably wisely, with everything that's going on at the moment - on when exactly we will be able to feast our eyes and ears on the new material.
Speaking at the time of the announcement, Terry Crews revealed that due to the situation in the US and the Black Lives Matter movement's rise to prominence, writers had to start all over again with the scripts.
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."
Co-star Andy Samberg, who plays Jake Peralta, also said that the new season would not shy away from dealing with important issues that are going on in the world right now.
Speaking to Variety last month, he said: "I think it's important for us and for anyone watching our show to keep in mind if we're looking for a half-hour comedy show to be the ones to solve this problem, we're in trouble.
"Our job is pointing out that stuff isn't getting done right and spreading the word that we're hopeful that it can get better."
He went on to say that the series had always tried to present the police force in a realistic way, and that 'our characters need to examine their roles in the world'.
He added: "They're going to be forced to look in the mirror and see who they're complicit with."
