Season 8 of Brooklyn Nine-Nine has been given a UK release date on E4, and it won’t belong. The hit comedy series’ final season will premiere on Wednesday, April 20 at 9 p.m., with a double bill of the first two episodes. Brooklyn Nine-Nine, created by Dan Goor and Mike Schur, follows Detective Jake Peralta, a talented but carefree detective, and his case-solving colleagues in the NYPD’s 99th precinct. Andre Braugher (Glory, Homicide: Life on the Street) plays Captain Raymond Holt, a slightly unconventional commanding officer in In charge of a team of detectives in the 99th precinct of the New York Police Department.
Andy Samberg (Palm Springs, That’s My Boy) plays the protagonist, Jake Peralta, a laid-back but talented detective. Gina Linetti, the precinct’s eccentric administrator, is played by Chelsea Peretti (Spinster and Sing 2). Con-artist Doug Judy (Craig Robinson), unstable detective Adrian Pimento (Jason Mantzoukas), Holt’s rival and NYPD commissioner Madeline Wuntch (Kyra Sedgwick), and Holt’s husband, Kevin Cozner, are all recurring characters (Marc Evan Jackson).
Holt and Santiago start their citywide police force:
In the comedy series, Andy Samberg, Andre Braugher, Melissa Fumero, Terry Crews, Stephanie Beatriz, Joe Lo Truglio, Joel McKinnon Miller, and Dirk Blocker star. In the first episode of the eighth season, Amy returns from maternity leave, titled The Good Ones, while Jake and Rosa work on a difficult case. In the second episode, titled The Lake House, the squad accepts Holt’s invitation to a weekend getaway. The wait is almost over for fans of the hit police comedy, as E4 will begin airing the eighth season later this month. However, Season 8 will be the team’s final appearance at the 99th precinct as Peralta transitions to full-time parenthood.
Holt and Santiago launch their citywide policy reform initiative. “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,” co-creator Dan Goor said of the comedy series’ demise. I know some people will be disappointed that it’s coming to an end so soon, but I’m grateful it lasted this long. “The name of my sex tape.” The cast – including Andy Samberg, Stephanie Beatriz, Andre Braugher, and Melissa Fumero – and Goor told Seth Meyers all about filming the highs and lows of saying goodbye to the series in an interview that aired after the finale aired in the United States.
