After a two-year hiatus Andy Samberg's police comedy, Brooklyn Nine-Nine is coming back to our screens for "one last ride", and although we want to be excited, we're just not ready to say goodbye! ?
It feels like it’s forever ago at this point since we checked in with the beloved characters of Brooklyn Nine-Nine, or witnessed the birth of Jake Peralta and Amy Santiago’s baby—McClane Peralta-Santiago—in the season 7 finale that aired back in April of 2020.
Back then, the pandemic was just roaring to life in the U.S., and many of us naively thought that life would be back to normal in just a few short weeks or months. Throw in a summer of civil unrest following the nationwide protests against police violence after the murder of George Floyd, and you have Brooklyn Nine-Nine—a show that always saw the best in police—coming back into a very different world than it left. Somehow, the fact that this is the final season seems oddly appropriate.
With that said, fans have been feverishly wondering how the series might tackle some of the issues revolving around policing that have been in the national consciousness in the last year, and we have our first glimpse in the form of the season 8 trailer, titled "One Last Ride". Check out a preview of what's to come below.
