Do you know what Terry loves more than yogurt? An official premiere date for the final season of Brooklyn Nine-Nine!

It's been confirmed that the eighth and final season of NBC's Brooklyn Nine-Nine will launch with back-to-back episodes beginning at 8 p.m. Thursday, August 12. The last hurrah for Brooklyn's finest will consist of 10 episodes, giving the cast a finite amount of time to send everyone off on a high note.

Back in June of last year, Terry Crews revealed that scripts for the first four episodes of the final season were being scrapped in the wake of civil unrest across the globe following the deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and many others. "Dan Goor had four episodes all ready to go, and they just threw them in the trash. We have to start over. Right now we don't know which direction it's going to go in," Crews said at the time. Two weeks later, Andy Samberg confirmed that changes were being made to the show that would reflect the ongoing protests happening in and around the New York City area specifically.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine stars Andy Samberg, Andre Braugher, Melissa Fumero, Terry Crews, Joe Lo Truglio, Stephanie Beatriz, Joel McKinnon Miller, and Dirk Blocker. NBC recently announced that the final season would debut the week after the Tokyo Olympic Games, whose closing ceremony is set for August 8.

I hope that Brooklyn Nine-Nine finds a way to pack the final 10 episodes of the season with special guests. After all, I can't imagine the series coming to a close without characters like Adrian Pimento (Jason Mantzoukas), Doug Judy (Craig Robinson), and, of course, Gina Linetti (Chelsea Peretti), making a special appearance.
