If we talk about the most popular sitcoms of all time, Brooklyn Nine-Nine is undoubtedly among them. The cop comedy-drama has been around for over 8 eight years. The eighth season of the show completed its run on NBC in September 2021. Even though the show has seemingly reached its conclusion, fans can never get enough of their favorite cops from the 99th precinct. So if you are one of the fans hoping for Brooklyn Nine-Nine Season 9, here’s what we know about it.
NBC’s Brooklyn Nine-Nine is an American sitcom drama series that debuted on the network in 2013. The series features the employees of fictional 99th precinct. Jake Peralta is a brilliant detective but has now figured out how to grow up. Queer Captian Ray Holt joins the precinct as Captian, which leads to wholesome changes in the working of the precinct. The quirky chemistry between Ray and Jake makes up for the hilarious moments in the series. In addition, the show features several unorthodox but funny characters like Charles, Amy, Rosa, and others.
The comedy drama series is created by Dan Goor and Michael Schur. The show has received excellent reviews by critics for its progressive nature, light-hearted comedy, and witty humor. It has also been praised for its portrayal of LGBTQ characters like Rosa and Capt. Holt. And the audience has showered the show with immense love.
Brooklyn Nine Nine initially premiered on Fox but was later picked by NBC. The comedy series has even won several prestigious awards like Golden Globe and Primetime Emmys. Owing to its high viewership, Brooklyn Nine Nine has spawned eight seasons. But the question is, will there be Brooklyn Nine Nine Season 9.
Is Brooklyn Nine Nine Season 9 Coming?
The eighth season of the comedy drama series aired the season finale on September 16, 2021. And, as far as Brooklyn Nine Nine Season 9 is concerned, we regret to inform the fans that the chances of that happening are quite bleak. Before the premiere of season 8, NBC announced that it will be the last installment in the series.
Showrunner Dan Goor remarked in a statement, “I’m so thankful to NBC and Universal Television for allowing us to give these characters and our fans the ending they deserve.” Thus, it is very unlikely that the show would return for Brooklyn Nine Nine Season 9.
What Happened In The Last Season?
Let’s take a look back at the previous season. The last season of Brooklyn Nine-Nine was heavily influenced by real-life events, particularly the COVID-19 epidemic, which was based on the tragic episode of George Floyd demonstrations. Rosa abandoned her job and became a private investigator in the last season of BB99 after losing faith in the system.
Meanwhile, Holt has been struggling to keep his marriage with Kevin alive. But they were able to mend fences and rekindle their vows in the end. Despite Hitchcock’s retirement, he maintained contact with Scully. On the other hand, Jake and Amy were in their first year of parenting, and they were adjusting to both their work and being decent parents. Amy devised a plan to conduct a massive reform program in order to alleviate the growing tensions between officers and people.
She found herself in the clutches of former NYPD Union President Frank O’Sullivan. And Jake was suspended for five months after making an erroneous arrest. The squad also managed to prevent O’Sullivan from destroying the reform program plan, allowing it to be implemented citywide, with Holt and Amy appointed as deputy commissioner and program chief, respectively.
Amy’s new job gave her a lot of responsibilities and made it difficult for her to devote time to her children. Jake then decided to leave his work and become a full-time father after witnessing Amy’s struggles, and Terry took over as Captain of the Precinct. The series draws to a close, with the squad committing to keep their Halloween Heists regardless of their changing lives. So, viewers will see more of the characters competing for heist if there is Brooklyn Nine Nine Season 9.
Gina And Rosa Were Not In The Show Initially!
Rosa Diaz and Gina have been such an integral part of Brooklyn Nine Nine. Thus, it seems hard to believe that both of the characters were not initially a part of the show. Actress Chelsea Peretti who plays Gina in the show, has previously worked with Michael Schur in Parks and Recreation. So, when the actress expressed her wish to be a part of the show, the creators, Schur and Goor, went ahead to create Gina’s characters just for her.
Similarly, Rosa Diaz was also not in the show initially. Stephanie Beatriz, who played Rosa, actually auditioned for the part of Amy Santiago. Although Amy’s role went to Melissa Fumero, the creators were so impressed by Beatriz that they penned down a new role for her in Brooklyn Nine Nine.
