Only a few months remain before we say our final goodbye to the Nine-Nine (sobs uncontrollably).
The first teaser trailer for the 8th and the final season of NBC’s famous cop comedy program Brooklyn Nine-Nine has been revealed. Fans are finally given an August 12 release date in the teaser. It’s a montage of bittersweet emotions for the fans who want more but are saddened by the series’ closure.
For those less acquainted with the show, Brooklyn Nine-Nine chronicles the shenanigans of Detective Jake Peralta (Andy Samberg) and his stoic Captain Raymond Holt (Andre Braugher), who make up the NYPD’s 99th Precinct, along with their eclectic comrades. Jake and the team will have to juggle their work and personal life over the course of a trying year in the final season.
Joining the ride for the season finale; Sgt. Amy Santiago (Melissa Fumero), Lt. Terry Jeffords (Terry Crews), Detectives Charles Boyle (Joe Lo Truglio), Rosa Diaz (Stephanie Beatriz), Detective Scully (Joel McKinnon Miller), and Hitchcock (Dirk Blocker) are all returning members of the 99.
The teaser begins with interviews with the actors, with Melissa Fumero (Amy Santiago) stating that “Brooklyn Nine-Nine changed my life,” an emotion shared by many fans. Andre Braugher (Cpt. Holt) expresses his appreciation for the “epic adventure” he’s had while working on the sitcom, while Terry Crews (Lt. Jeffords) adds, “It’s been so much fun.”
The teaser trailer includes a video medley featuring some of the iconic moments from the previous years of Brooklyn Nine-Nine, as well as some of the show’s most amazing experiences. The program aired for eight glorious years, had seven heist episodes (in which the department splits into teams in attempt to steal a valuable relic and acquire the title of “amazing detective-slash-genius” for outsmarting everyone else), and made jokes about “32 sex tape titles.” It’s been a great run, and there may be a few more heists or sex tape titles in the last season, but it’s time to bid farewell.
Brooklyn Nine-Nine was NBC’s second-highest-rated digital show during its seventh season, with 24 million viewers. The sitcom, which was executive produced by Dan Goor, Mike Schur, David Miner, Luke Del Tredici, and David Phillips, premiered in 2013 on Fox and ran for five seasons until being rescued by NBC after an unexpected cancellation.
So, what can fans hope from Brooklyn Nine-Nine’s season 8? We’re hoping for a slew of new “cools,” a lifelong supply of yogurt for Lieutenant Jeffords, more sex tape gags, and at least yet another mind-blowing heist. But one thing is certain: they’re “going out with a bang…a mic drop…[and] a burst of glory,” according to the promo.
Season 8 premiere of Brooklyn Nine-Nine airs Thursday, August 12 at 8/7c on NBC.
