Just as fans started feeling upset as Brooklyn Nine-Nine Season 8 will be the final season of the series, the sitcom has unveiled season 8’s brand new poster and title using the series’ long-running joke. Fox once canceled Brooklyn Nine-Nine after successfully running its five seasons. But, NBC soon picked the series due to its massive social campaign for its renewal.
Once again, the series is on its end journey as NBC announced in February that season 8 of the procedural cop sitcom will be the last. The series has been highly acclaimed for depicting sensitive subjects with a blend of humor, including the LGBTQ+ portrayal. Yet despite being NYPD’s show, they have moderately addressed the police brutality. Although, Terry Crews (Lieutenant Terry Jeffords) teased things will be different in the final season.
Brooklyn Nine-Nine Season 8: Poster Teased What To Expect
Brooklyn Nine-Nine’s recent Instagram post teased what precisely the final season will look like. While blending perfectly with the season’s tagline “One Last Ride” with the show’s recurring “Title Of Your Sex Tape” joke. However, even the devoted fans can also notice another hidden tease- Joel McKinnon, who plays lazy detective Norm Scully completes a puzzle of season 8’s poster. Well, it shows his outstanding jigsaw skills.
Further, the video highlights that more such hilarious elements will be present in the final run. However, to our surprise, not a single detective is carrying their police badge in the poster, although Hitchcock’s holding an NYPD mug. But for the first time in this sitcom’s history, Holt appears in civilian clothes with a fluffy friend. So it seems the finale will be highly eccentric on the police brutality.
Will Address Police Brutality
Lately, NBC teased that it will be a “very tough year” for the Brooklyn Nine-Nine. Now, Jake and other members of the squad must try to balance their professional as well as personal lives during this traumatic year. Andy Samberg also confirmed that last year they scrapped the first four scripts after the brutal George Floyd’s death and massive public protests against police brutality. And it became a bit complicated for them to make a comedy show in such a difficult time.
