The veteran comedy will conclude during the 2021-2022 season.
February 11, 2021
It was announced today that Brooklyn Nine-Nine will be coming to an end after its upcoming eighth season. The sad news comes over a year after the veteran comedy was last renewed. Series co-creator Dan Goor posted a heartfelt note to fans on the show's Twitter account, expressing gratitude that it lasted as long as it did. By the time the show wraps, it will have 153 episodes under its belt - quite an impressive run for a comedy.
The half-hour series started out on Fox, airing five seasons from 2013-2018. After initially being cancelled, NBC quickly stepped in to revive the show, where it has aired in the last two years as a mid-season entry. Due to the global pandemic, the show ended up skipping the 2020-2021 season entirely, and is expected to return for Season 8 this fall.
Led by Saturday Night Live alum Andy Samberg, Brooklyn Nine-Nine follows an offbeat group of detectives and staff at the 99th precinct of the New York Police Department. Samberg plays the eclectic Jake Peralta, a talented but immature detective whose carefree style clashes with his stern, by-the-books captain, played by Andre Braugher.

I came to it late, after several seasons. But while many sitcoms sag after this long, the 99 usually gave me a couple of belly laughs per episode. Some episodes were classics.
Here's for a long bingworthy life on the stream services!!
I sat thru one episode and afterwards I asked myself "why".
Adam Samberg is obnoxious and the only thing on SNL that was funny was his parody with Justin Timberlake *ick in the box.
I don't know how this show has lasted this long.
