NBC has teased that the eighth season of Brooklyn Nine-Nine will be its “most ambitious” season.
Brooklyn Nine-Nine New Trailer
The new trailer offers a glimpse into all the goofiness you would expect from Brooklyn Nine-Nine including Boyle in a fur coat fantasizing about retirement with Jake, all precincts sending their Hitchcocks and Scullys to the Nine-Nine, and more. The trailer also shows recurring characters like Chelsea Peretti’s Gina Linetti and Jason Mantzoukas’ Adrian Pimento.
The final season of Brooklyn Nine-Nine is expected to deliver a more poignant and realistic take about cops in the US. The show’s star Andre Braugher had said, “It’s a very complicated subject, but I think they have to be portrayed much more realistically, in terms of this: The convention… that police breaking the law is okay because somehow it’s in the service of some greater good, is a myth that needs to be destroyed.” The creative team behind the show had scrapped the entire season 8 after having conversations about the Black Lives Matter movement. The team started over and came up with different storylines for the final season.
Brooklyn Nine-Nine season 8 will debut on August 12 in the US. The final season is expected to release on Netflix in India several months after it airs on NBC. Currently, the Indian release date for Brooklyn Nine-Nine season 8 isn’t revealed yet.
In addition, the video above teases the return of several familiar faces, including Holt’s husband Kevin (Marc Evan Jackson), onetime assistant Gina (former series regular Chelsea Peretti), Rosa’s ex-fiancé Adrian Pimento (Jason Mantzoukas), Doug “The Pontiac Bandit” Judy (Craig Robinson) and his beloved sister Trudy (Nicole Byer). Scrubs vet John C. McGinley even pops up at one point, albeit in an undisclosed role. (Perhaps he succeeds the late Madeline Wuntch as commissioner of the NYPD?)
Brooklyn‘s 10-episode sendoff was delayed when the first four scripts were scrapped in light of last summer’s nationwide protests against police violence, following the horrifying murder of George Floyd. Soon after, Andy Samberg confirmed that the series was “taking a step back,” as the cast, writers, and producers contemplated “how you make a comedy show about police right now.” The trailer does not indicate how the show intends to do that, but the previously released logline at least hints at it:
Jake and the squad must try to balance their personal lives and their professional lives over the course of a very difficult year.
Brooklyn Nine-Nine‘s Season 7 finale, which featured the arrival of the #Peraltiago baby, aired April 23 of last year.
Brooklyn Nine-Nine will air back-to-back episodes on Thursdays. Fans have been waiting for new episodes since April 2020. Season 8 was slated to air in the 2020-2021 season, but it was one of many series that was forced to delay production in the pandemic.
