Here’s What We Know About Brooklyn Nine-Nine Season 8

Brooklyn Nine-Nine Season 8: What We Know

Merely two weeks after Brooklyn Nine Nine’s emotional season finale, which celebrated the arrival of Jake and Amy’s son Mac, we’re already craving more.

Mac’s birth came in the midst of a chaos-inducing blackout which found Jake and Boyle investigating the source of the outage while Amy took charge of the precinct. With Rosa as a reluctant labor coach by her side, Amy was forced to power through her contractions and oversee the emergency protocol after Terry and Holt got stuck inside an elevator. 

Aside from the obvious, the season finale’s most iconic (and extremely unexpected) scene showed Captain Holt and Terry dancing to Salt-N-Pepa ‘Push It’. Actor Terry Crews shared a reenactment of the dance on his Twitter account:

Production for Brooklyn Nine-Nine Season 8 has begun, but when can we expect our favorite feel-good show to make a return?

Brooklyn Nine-Nine Season 8 Release Date: What We Know

As with many other things at the moment, there is a lot of uncertainty around Brooklyn Nine-Nine Season 8’s release date. It all depends on when studios can open up again and start filming. Unfortunately, as of right now, we can’t say when the series will air. But know that we are just as excited as you are!

What Will Brooklyn Nine-Nine Season 8 Be About?

After seeing Season 7’s finale, many of us wonder how much the show will focus on Jake and Amy as parents going forward. In a recent interview with TVLine, series co-creator Dan Goor explained: 

We’re very conscious, similarly to when we coupled them up, that this is a workplace show. While we like doing comedy about them as a romantic item, or as a married couple, or [now] as parents, we primarily do comedy about them working together. Hopefully we’ll be able to strike a similar balance, and I think we’ll be conscious of the fact that they have a kid.

Will the Coronavirus be Featured On the Show?

As the show takes place in New York, which was hit hard by the pandemic, we expect to see Coronavirus content. The writers are currently still debating how to incorporate the pandemic or if characters will have caught COVID-19. 

We think there is a value to escapism, but at the same time, we don’t want to be ignorant. I don’t think anybody wants us to, nor do we want to, have our characters toiling away in the depths of the pandemic. I don’t think that’s the direction we’ll go in. But the question is how they have been affected by the virus and the pandemic as New York City residents and as first responders in New York City. How do we keep the show funny? How do we do that while still making them of this world and of their world? It’s challenging.

Could Gina Linetti Make a Comeback?

Gina Linetti, the undisputed queen of sass, is likely to make a return in Season 8. “I want to make sure that she’s in Season 8,” Goor told TVLine. Then, he added “I love Chelsea Peretti. I think she’s one of the funniest human beings in the world, and I love the character of Gina Linetti.”

Chelsea Peretti, who plays Gina, seems to like the idea. In response to Goor, she tweeted:
