Brooklyn Nine-Nine Series-Finale Recap: The Perfect Good-bye

It’s over! The remarkable eight-season, two-network run of Brooklyn Nine-Nine came to a close last night with the hour-long “The Last Day,” an episode that genuinely gives fans what they want in a series finale. It returns to the most beloved structure of this sitcom: the heist! And it peppers this final adventure with a ton of nods to the history of the show, some of them in the blatant form of returning guest stars and some more as Easter eggs for the hard-core fans. It’s an episode that allows its performers to shine with clever, funny, and incredibly fast-paced performances. And as this show has so often done, it’s bound with just enough emotion to land. Brooklyn Nine-Nine was a show about relationships more than anything else, as Jake Peralta found a partner in Amy, a best friend in Boyle, and a father figure in Holt. Jake says near the end that “good-byes are inherently sad,” but the team behind this show found a way to bring the rocky final season to a close with enough joy and humor to send it off with the proper final case.

As 'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' Winds Down, It's Time To Assess Its Complicated Legacy

This week, the NBC police comedy Brooklyn Nine-Nine will end its eight-season run. Starring Andy Samberg and Andre Braugher, among many other gifted comic actors, the show has enjoyed a devoted following and strong reviews. It's also survived shaky ratings and a change in networks, and its last season is airing against a backdrop of more intense conversations around real-life police violence that can't be laughed off or swept aside.

‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine’ Season 2 Blooper Reel Even Makes Captain Holt Laugh Out Loud

Today, the official Brooklyn Nine-Nine Twitter account dropped three wonderful minutes of blooper reels for fans to enjoy. Because the bloopers are from Season 2, we get to see Chelsea Peretti as Gina Linetti (she, unfortunately, left the show during Season 6), who starts things off by slapping costar Joe Lo Truglio (Detective Charles Boyle) hard in the face.

What to Watch on Thursday: The Squad says goodbye on Brooklyn Nine-Nine series finale

Remember back in 2018, when you thought you'd have to say goodbye to Jake & Amy & Holt and the rest of the precinct when Fox canceled the show? Well, goodbyes can be delayed, but they can't be denied. So here we are, three seasons on NBC later, and the cult cop comedy that was savvy, silly and socially conscious is signing off with a one-hour finale. The network is playing it close to the bulletproof vest, releasing only this tease for the last episode(s): "The Squad takes stock of their eight years together and looks towards their future." A future that does not include a weekly group-shout of "Nine-Nine!"? That feels uncool, uncool, uncool. Maybe you should just cue up season 1 again and slowly work your way to the finale. After all, you can't rush a goodbye.—Dan Snierson.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine: Does Series Finale Title Hint at Jake's [Spoiler]?

Is Jake Peralta turning in his badge and gun? With just two episodes left before its hour-long swan song, NBC has released a title (and an extremely vague description) for Brooklyn Nine-Nine‘s Sept. 16 series finale. The episode is titled “The Last Day,” and the synopsis simply reads… “The series finale.” The title could refer to Jake’s last day on the force. Nine-Nine‘s farewell season has seen Amy’s husband grapple with his role as a detective, which has led some viewers to believe that he will resign from the NYPD before season’s end. That hunch was first fed by the Season 8...

Brooklyn Nine-Nine Recap: A Broken System

“The Setup” is one of the better episodes of Brooklyn Nine-Nine’s season eight and, arguably, would have made a stronger season premiere, or at least second episode of its premiere night, in that it more subtly highlights the failures of copaganda than other episodes this season. Generally, the show prefers putting its overzealous officers and their passionate ineptitude on a pedestal. Yes, the Peralta stuff this week really hits that nail with a blunt hammer, but the Boyle and Terry subplot nearly says more about officers’ microaggressions and personalities and being a part of a broken system that is supposed to serve and protect. It’s an episode a bit light on laughs but sharper and tighter in terms of writing and character than the last couple of adventures in the 9-9.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine Recap: Tigers and Toucans

It seemed inevitable that the final season of Brooklyn Nine-Nine would bring back some of the most beloved guest stars, especially Doug Judy, aka The Pontiac Bandit, played by the immensely likable Craig Robinson. The Office star’s general affability carries a pretty mediocre send-off for Judy, which sees him taking Jake Peralta for one final ride. What’s perhaps most interesting about this only sporadically funny episode is that it leans into a fan theory that’s been gaining steam: Peralta will quit the force in the series finale after realizing that while he’s been a very successful cop, it never quite fit his personality. The scenes in which Doug tries to encourage Jake to leave it all behind are the episode’s most fascinating because they hint at where the writers could eventually leave Jake: outside of the 9-9.
