One of the best sitcoms of all time, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, has been around for eight long years. And as it happens, the show is now coming to an end. It has been entertaining with Jake Peralta and the rest of the gang, making us laugh endlessly. But like all good things, this also got to come to a stopping point. The eighth season has been announced as the last one!
It’s going to be one emotional ride for Peralta and the gang as they see farewell once and for all. Unlike other seasons, the final season will only consist of ten episodes only. So there will not be much to go on for! But a lot of memories be cherished in these last ten episodes. There is so much that can take place. So let us explore some of the biggest highlights that the last season left us and see what can finally happen in the end! Time to go through some long-time nostalgia with Peralta and the gang!
The cast that we’ve been dying to see one last time!
We’re excited to see most as fans as the cast coming back for one more time! It is going to be a blast to see them together for one last time! Andy Samberg is set to return as the lead protagonist of the show as Detective Jake Peralta.
Melissa Fumero will also return as Sergeant Amy Santiago. For one last time, she will be coming in for one last time as the cop and now wife and mother to Jake and their new son McClane. Along with Melissa, we also have Joe Lo Truglio coming back as Charles Boyle. He is also coming back for his role as Detective. Charles has been Jake’s best friend ever since the inception of the show. For many fans, Charles is considered the real powerhouse of the show, as he brings undeniable energy every time!
Another big star that is gracing the Nine-Nine carpet once again is Terry Crews. He is coming back for his role as Lt. Terry Jeffords. He was previously promoted from his rank of Sergeant and now heads the team. He is considered to be one of the coolest guys around. Terry and his yogurt are going to make some serious comeback!
Andre Braugher is also coming in as Captain Raymond Holt, the man in charge of the precinct. Although, in the latest season of the show, Captain Holt shortly had to play a patrol officer in the middle. But alter on, he was once again appointed as the commanding officer of the 99th Precinct.
Stephanie Beatriz will also be reprising her role as the cool and calm Detective Rosa Diaz. She may be a hard rock on the outside, but on the inside, she is coming back as the soft-hearted cop who has a love for everyone around her.
And last but not least, we cannot forget the unseparated duo of Joel McKinnon Miller and Dirk Blocker. Both of them will be reprising the roles as the legendary Scully and Hitchcock. Without these two, the show would feel empty—time for them to hog some more food and enjoy their time close to retirement.
And one person we are expecting to make a guest appearance for one final time is none other than Chelsea Peretti. She could come back as a guest for her role as Gina Linetti. It would be fun to see her in the precinct for one last time and see what she has to bring for the finale!
The return of The Pontiac Bandit? Doug Judy for the win!
One of the most loved characters of the show is none other than the Pontiac Bandit. Although he has been around for so long, it’s hard to say how his story will finish. That’s right. We are talking about Doug Judy, Jake’s long-living nemesis. Although, it is unfair to use the word nemesis.
It’s happened many times in the past seasons that Doug and Jake have connected like brothers. Of course, we all know that Doug is a very deceptive man and tries to fool Jake for his gain wisely. But on the other hand, Doug feels like the one consistent antagonist that the fans have loved. His time in the show has been remembered by many.
We can only hope that Doug Judy will make a final appearance in the show’s last season. This time, it would be a great face-off between him and Jake. Will Jake finally get to catch him, or will he just let him go?
It will be Craig Robinson, the man himself, who will come back as the funny Pontiac Bandit that we all love. Of course, this time, he would elevate the level of crime and might make things even more difficult for Jake. But with Jake’s perfect cop skills and being one of New York’s finest, it looks like Jake is not going to go out without a fight. Although, let’s see if we get to see them once again like brothers. Something to look forward to!
Jake Peralta and Amy Santiago’s new McClane Peralta!
With all the action and comedy that has been going around in the show, a new character has finally taken a newborn step into the show. That is right! Amy and Jake finally have a baby of their own. It was the season finale of the 7th season, where Amy, Jake, and the rest of the gang reached the hospital. Over there, they were blessed by the birth of a newborn whose name is McClane Perata, a.k.a. Mac.
Of course, we all know the history behind that name. Jake’s favorite fictional character from any movie series is Detective John McClane from the ‘Die Hard’ movies. That is why the name is inspired by Bruce Willis’s iconic fictional portrayal of the cop! All we can say is yippee ki-yay for the newborn kid! If you know, then you know. Of course, Amy and Jake will have to adapt to a new lifestyle as the baby will be their utmost priority. Let us see how the final season progresses for both of them!
A 10-episode final season!
With all of this said and done, it looks there is nothing else to say about the show. All we can say that this show, like many others, has also left long-lasting impressions among the audience. and like many legendary sitcoms, the comedy for this show is absolutely off the charts.
In February 2021, it was announced that the eighth season would be served as the show’s final season. It will consist of 10 episodes only, unlike other previous seasons. The new season is set to premiere on Netflix on August 12th, 2021. That means all of this is less than a month away! The entire cast will be coming back for more! The laughs, the cries, the friendship, all of it. Brooklyn Nine-Nine Season 8. One last time!
