'We’re going out with a bang,' says Melissa Fumero

The final season for hit police comedy series Brooklyn Nine-Nine is set to premiere on August 12, NBC confirmed on Friday, May 21. 

“Save the date for Season 8, Nine-Niners,” they wrote alongside a promotional teaser for the  series. 

The video featured the 9-9 gang looking back at their experience as part of the show. Joe Lo Truglio said, “A lot has happened in eight years,” while Terry Crews recalled how they “had so much fun” while filming the series.

Melissa Fumero also teased the fans that the upcoming season will be “epic.” “We’re going out with a bang and a little bit of a mic drop,” she said in the video. 

Executive producer Dan Goor announced in February that Season 8 will be the show’s finale. “I’m so thankful to NBC and Universal Television for allowing us to give these characters and our fans the ending they deserve,” he said.

“Ending the show was a difficult decision, but ultimately, we felt it was the best way to honor the characters, the story, and our viewers. I know some people will be disappointed it’s ending so soon, but honestly, I’m grateful it lasted this long,” he continued.

The Golden Globe-winning TV series stars Andy Samberg, Andre Braugher, Terry Crews, Melissa Fumero, Stephanie Beatriz, Joe Lo Truglio, Dirk Blocker, and Joel McKinnon Miller. It first aired on FOX in 2013 before it was canceled after five seasons. 

In 2018, NBC picked up the series for a 6th and 7th season. NBC renewed the show in November 2019  for a 10-episode 8th season. – Rappler.com
