NBC announced today the beloved cop comedy will wrap things up in the 2021-2022 broadcast season with a 10-episode order. NBC has yet to decide when the final season will premiere -- Brooklyn Nine-Nine's last episode aired last season, in April 2020. This is Brooklyn Nine-Nine's second cancelation. NBC rescued it in 2018 after Fox's cancelation after five seasons prompted fan outrage. The Hollywood Reporter's Lesley Goldberg reports NBC "opted to delay Brooklyn's return in order to give the beloved and award-winning comedy a proper sendoff. NBC has already set its 'midseason' slate as part of a crowded broadcast calendar in April and has, pandemic challenges notwithstanding, the Olympics in the summer. Rather than bury it in August, NBC will use the Olympics to market the final season and give the show a big promotional push for an expected 2021-22 premiere." As Goldberg points out, Brooklyn Nine-Nine is also facing the challenge of putting out episodes of a cop comedy that paints police in a positive light in the aftermath of George Floyd's death and the ensuing Black Lives Matter protests. "I’m so thankful to NBC and Universal Television for allowing us to give these characters and our fans the ending they deserve," co-creator Dan Goor said in a statement. "When Mike Schur and I first pitched the pilot episode to Andy, he said, 'I'm in, but I think the only way to tell this story is over exactly 153 episodes,' which was crazy because that was exactly the number Mike and I had envisioned. I feel incredibly lucky to have worked with this amazing cast and crew for eight seasons. They are not only among the most talented people in the business, they are all good human beings who have become a family. But most of all, I feel lucky that we have had the best fans in the world. Fans who literally saved us from cancellation. Fans who fill us with joy. 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. Title of my sex tape."
