NBCUniversal‘s Brooklyn Nine-Nine is coming to an end with its upcoming eight season.

The sad news was announced by executive producer Dan Goor in a lengthy statement, where he expressed his gratitude to the network, the cast, crew and fans. “I’m so thankful to NBC and Universal Television for allowing us to give these characters and our fans the ending they deserve,” he wrote. “When Mike Schur and I first pitched the pilot episode to Andy, he said, ‘I’m in, but I think the only way to tell this story is over exactly 153 episodes,’ which was crazy because that was exactly the number Mike and I had envisioned. I feel incredibly lucky to have worked with this amazing cast and crew for eight seasons. They are not only among the most talented people in the business, they are all good human beings who have become a family. But most of all, I feel lucky that we have had the best fans in the world. Fans who literally saved us from cancellation. Fans who fill us with joy. Ending the show was a difficult decision, but ultimately, we felt it was the best way to honor the characters, the story and our viewers. I know some people will be disappointed it’s ending so soon, but honestly, I’m grateful it lasted this long. Title of my sex tape.”

The comedy cop show’s final season will consist of 10 episodes and will see Andy Samberg, Andre Braugher, Terry Crews, Melissa Fumero, Stephanie Beatriz, Joe Lo Truglio, Dirk Blocker and Joel McKinnon Miller reprise their roles one last time as the core group of the NYPD’s fictional 99th precinct.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine premiered on FOX in 2013 but was infamously cancelled after its fifth season in 2018. Much to the relief of viewers, NBC picked it up the day after its cancellation. The series managed to tackle sensitive topics such as sexuality, racism and sexual assault, but received backlash for not focusing on police brutality in the wake of George Floyd’s murder. Goor ended up scrapping four new episodes after Floyd’s death and the cast and crew donated $100,000 USD to the National Bail Fund Network in June 2020. They also previously confirmed that the final season will address the issues.

Stay tuned for a season eight trailer and release date.

Elsewhere in entertainment, Bong Joon-ho revealed that he is working on followups to Parasite.
