This news breaks my heart. Like 99 times over.
The beloved cop comedy starring Andy Samberg and Andre Braugher will wrap with its previously announced eighth season. The final season will consist of 10 episodes — its lowest order ever.
What’s more, the series may not even air till 2022!!
Word is Brooklyn is facing a significant challenge in the wake of George Floyd’s killing by a police officer. “The writers are all rethinking how we’re going to move forward,” Samberg, who also exec produces the series, told People in July. [Everyone is] discussing how you make a comedy show about police right now, and if we can find a way of doing that that we all feel morally OK about? I know that we’ll figure it out, but it’s definitely a challenge.”
So it looks like they couldn’t come up with a decent way to handle funny cops. And it makes me sad because it would have been great to get their spin on everything.
