Netflix UK Adds Brooklyn Nine-Nine Season 8 After Long User Wait

Netflix has received a notable expansion to its service.

Among the huge selection of original titles on the streaming platform this month is a licensed acquisition that users have been waiting for over a year.

Typically on Netflix, the final season of Brooklyn Nine-Nine was added between January and March.

However, the sitcom’s eighth and final season, which aired in the US in 2021, never arrived in 2022.

This was most likely because the show’s network, NBC, had exclusive rights to air the series on its specialist streaming service, Peacock.

Luckily, enough time has passed to add the final 10-episode season to Netflix. It came out on Thursday (April 20)

“Hmph! It took you long enough,” one user wrote, while another added, “About time!!!”

“Took on long enough, the show ended in 2021,” said one user.

The series, which first aired in 2013, stars Andy Samberg as a police detective alongside Melissa Fumero, Stephanie Beatriz, Andre Braugher, Terry Crews and Joe Lo Truglio.

It ran for five seasons on Fox before being cancelled. However, NBC salvaged the series and commissioned three more runs.

The cast paid tribute to the series after the finale aired in September 2022.

Members of the cast of the series shared their reactions to the show’s ending on social media.

Crews, who plays Terry Jeffords, wrote: “What an adventure!! This show has meant so much to me over the years, and I know it means a lot to all of you. Thank you, love and NINE-NINE FOREVER!!!!”

Fumero added: “This finale was made with a lot of love, a lot of joy, a lot of laughter and even some tears. We hope you love it as much as we do. Nine nine forever.”

“This final episode was made for all of your fans,” wrote Lo Truglio. “We are so grateful for our time with you. I hope you dig it.”

Meanwhile, Braugher said, “What can I say? Words cannot express how much you all mean to me and how proud I am that #Brooklyn99 means so much to you all. It was just a pleasure and I thank you from the bottom of my heart.”
