Brooklyn Nine-Nine season 8

As America continues to grapple in real time with the institution of policing and endure the ramifications of an untold number of murders by police officers due to systemic racism, the idea of a cop comedy doesn’t seem quite as funny as it used to. Brooklyn Nine-Nine, a show that’s always had its heart in the right place, knows this. So creator and showrunner Dan Goor threw out the scripts for the eighth season, and he and the writers are crafting new scripts that address some of these issues head on.

In a new interview, Andre Braugher, who recently earned another Emmy nomination for playing NYPD Captain Raymond Holt (one of the best characters on TV), says that the new season is “a new challenge” and says he has faith in the writers to be able to acknowledge real-world events while still giving fans the comedy that they love.

Amid the global anti-police brutality protests sparked by Minnesota police officers killing George Floyd, TV shows centering around cops are starting to re-evaluate their priorities. One of those shows is the goodhearted NBC sitcom Brooklyn Nine-Nine, which we learned last month is trying to grapple with its place as a comedy show about cops by scrapping its season 8 scripts and starting from scratch. But even star Andy Samberg, who has played Detective Jake Peralta on the show for all seven seasons, admits that moving forward with Brooklyn Nine-Nine will be “a challenge.”

TV shows centering around cops have been forced to reckon with the impact they’ve had on public perception of law enforcement in recent months, amid the global anti-police brutality protests sparked by the killing of George Floyd by Minnesota police officers. Reality shows like Cops and Live PD have been canceled, while scripted series like Law & Order and NCIS are grappling with the question of whether they glorify police brutality.

So where does that leave Brooklyn Nine-Nine, the beloved NBC sitcom about a team of NYPD detectives that has built a loyal following for its goodhearted comedy? As it heads into its eighth season, the series is starting from scratch, star Terry Crews confirmed, revealing that the writers have decided to scrap four of the Brooklyn Nine-Nine season 8 scripts in the wake of the Black Lives Matter protests.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine Season 7 Trailer

Brooklyn Nine-Nine is returning for a seventh season on NBC next month, and the first trailer with new footage from the season premiere has finally arrived. It’s a throwback to cop shows of the 1980s, which feels appropriate since Captain Holt (Andre Braugher) has to go back to his early days as a patrolman after his nemesis Madeline Wuntch (Kyra Sedgwick) learned he only spent a month as a uniformed patrolman before becoming a detective. That’s a breach of NYPD rules, and the temporary demotion results in a little bit of confusion for Jake Peralta (Andy Samberg) and his team. Read More »
