August 13, 2021
You have the right to remain…laughing—because the detectives of Brooklyn’s 99th precinct are back for one last hilarious season.
It’s been over a year since the hit NBC series Brooklyn Nine-Nine last graced our television screens in April of 2020, and fans can’t wait to see what the new season will bring for Jake (Andy Samberg), Amy (Melissa Fumero), and the rest of the 99 crew.
For those of you heading to Hulu to stream the final season, we’re here to break down everything you need to know. Plus, we’re sharing some of our favorite, rewatchable moments from the show (because, let’s be honest, we can’t wait to go back and binge from season 1).
Buckle up, because we have a feeling we’re in for the most cool, cool, cool season yet—and you don’t want to miss it.
Brooklyn 99 Season 8 Release Date
Brooklyn Nine-Nine premieres on Thursday, August 12 at 8 p.m. with two back-to-back episodes on NBC.
As each of the ten final episodes air on NBC, they will be available the next day to stream on Hulu, so fans will be able to stream the first two episodes on Friday, August 13.
What to Expect from the Brooklyn 99 New Season
Historically, Brooklyn Nine-Nine doesn’t shy away from covering real societal issues—and fans don’t expect the new season to be any different.
Terry Crews, who plays Lieutenant Terry Jeffords in the sitcom, told Access Hollywood in June 2020 that episodes for the new season were scrapped following protest activity around the country, leading fans to speculate that the new season will address issues relevant to race and equality.
Season 8 is also expected to pick up with Jake and Amy learning how to navigate parenthood for the first time.
How many seasons of Brooklyn 99 are on Hulu?
Seasons 1-7 of Brooklyn Nine-Nine are available to stream right now on Hulu. As new episodes air on NBC, they will become available to stream on Hulu the next day.
Following the season 8 finale, airing Thursday, September 16 on NBC, the series will be available to stream in its entirety on Hulu (beginning on Friday, September 17).
Is Brooklyn 99 over?
Sadly, yes. Season 8 will be the final season of Brooklyn Nine-Nine.
Luckily, you can fill the void by rewatching the series, or by discovering similar sitcoms on Hulu. To ease the transition, we even included some titles starring the Brooklyn Nine-Nine cast. Keep scrolling to see our list of recommendations.
