Starring Andy Samberg and Andre Braugher, Season 8 follows NYPD’s 99th Precinct’s Det. Jake Peralta and Capt. Raymond Holt and their lovable colleagues as they balance their personal and professional lives over the course of a difficult year.

Returning in their roles are Melissa Fumero, who plays Sgt. Amy Santiago, an expert at organizing and dork dancing, and Terry Crews, who plays gentle giant Lt. Terry Jeffords. Joe Lo Truglio plays the hopelessly hardworking Det. Charles Boyle, Stephanie Beatriz plays the tough and secretive Rosa Diaz, and Joel McKinnon Miller and Dirk Blocker return as veteran officers Det. Scully and Det. Hitchcock.

After drawing criticism for its sympathetic portrayal of law enforcement in the wake of George Floyd’s murder, the show announced it would donate $100,000 to the National Bail Fund Network. In a profile of Braugher published to Variety last year, “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” executive producer Dan Goor stated that Season 8 would address issues of police brutality and systemic inequality.

“Brooklyn Nine-Nine” is produced by Universal Television, Fremulon, Dr. Goor Productions and 3 Arts Entertainment and executive produced by Goor, Mike Schur, David Miner, Luke Del Tredici and David Phillips.

“Brooklyn Nine Nine” was famously canceled after five seasons at Fox in 2018 before NBC revived it for a sixth season that same year. The show’s seventh and most recent season reached 24 million viewers.
