Brooklyn Nine-Nine is coming to an end.

The comedy series will not return until the 2021-22 broadcast season, and will end with a 10-episode order, THR reported Thursday (February 11).

The Andy Samberg cop show will end with its previously announced eighth season, consisting of 10 episodes — its lowest order ever. It will return at a date still to be determined during the 2021-22 broadcast season.

“Sources say 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,” the outlet reported.

The show also faced a significant challenge to reflect the times amid #BlackLivesMatter protests around the nation, as well as the pandemic, causing writers to reconsider how to write the series.

Here’s what Andy Samberg said about how the characters will examine their roles in the upcoming season.

All of these shows also recently just got canceled at Netflix.
