NBC’s police procedural comedy, ‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine’ has never failed at immersing fans in hysteric bouts of laughter since its debut in 2013. Until its fifth outing, the show used to air on Fox but later, it changed its platform to NBC — where it aired two more editions. Yes, to date, ‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine’ has seen seven successful seasons. And the reason is simple. The Emmy and Golden Globe-winning drama not only boasts of a strong cast but all of its plotlines are studded with rib-cracking humor. Now that the seventh edition has concluded, you must be wanting to know when will ‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine’ season 8 will release. Read on.

‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine’ season 7 premiered on February 6, 2020, on NBC. After airing for 13 episodes, it wrapped up on April 23, 2020.

As far as the next season goes, we have good news for the fans. On November 14, 2019, well ahead of season 7 premiere, NBC renewed the series for another edition.

On April 20, 2020, amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, which brought the whole world to a standstill, co-creator Dan Goor lifted up the spirits of fans via a tweet on his official Twitter handle. He said that writing for season 8 has already begun (remotely, of course). He wrote: “I’m happy to announce that the #Brooklyn99 season 8 writers’ room started (remotely) today. The fact that the show has endured for this long is a testament to our amazing actors, crew, and writers, and to our fans, who are the best in the world. Thank you! Stay safe! Nine-Nine!”

If we assume the writing to conclude within the next couple of months, filming should start soon after. However, we can expect a bit of a delay in the shooting schedule due to the 2020 health crisis. In all probability, ‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine’ season 8 should premiere sometime in Fall 2021.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine Season 8 Cast: Who Can Be In It?

The cast of the cop comedy is led by Andy Samberg as Jake Peralta, Stephanie Beatriz as Rosa Diaz, Terry Crews as Terry Jeffords, Melissa Fumero as Amy Santiago, Joe Lo Truglio as Charles Boyle, Andre Braugher as Raymond Holt, Dirk Blocker as Michael Hitchcock, and Joel McKinnon Miller as Norm Scully. We expect the entire lead cast to make their respective comebacks in season 8.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine Season 8 Plot: What Can It Be About?

Season 7 of ‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine’ is packed with multiple comic moments. Holt, who was demoted earlier, manages to retrieve his position of Captain. Meanwhile, Amy gets pregnant after six months of trying, and Jake almost ends up losing his job while trying to solve a case. And for the first time in the show’s history, Rosa wins the Halloween Heist thrice — winning all of the Halloween, Valentine’s Day, and Easter Heists.

Season 8 will embrace the same premise and continue to follow the various hijinks of the fictional NYPD crew at the 99th Precinct in Brooklyn. Moreover, with Jake welcoming his baby in the seventh season’s finale, it will be interesting to see how his character changes as he takes up new responsibilities of fathering his kid.
