WHAT TO EXPECT
The season finale of “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” will tackle the Black Lives Matter movement. Andre Braugher, who plays Captain Raymond Holt, told Entertainment Weekly's "The Awardist” podcast more about the plot.
“It’s a very complicated subject, but I think they (the police) have to be portrayed much more realistically, in terms of this: convention…that police breaking the law is okay because somehow it’s the service of some greater good, is a myth that needs to be destroyed,” he shared adding:
“We’re going into an eighth season with a new challenge, which is that everyone’s knowledge and feelings about police…have been profoundly affected.”

Not only will the BLM movement be incorporated into the show, but the worldwide pandemic will also be featured with New York first responders at the frontline of the crisis.
According to Deadline, the last season of the show grew to 6.4 million viewers overall. The new date release is not yet known as filming was pushed back until January 18 due to the ongoing pandemic.
NBC also announced the series will have a shorter season for its final exit with merely ten episodes and will start airing in autumn 2021.

In July 2020, Andy Samberg, who plays the leading role of Detective Jake Peralta, shared the crew was reevaluating how to produce the show in the wake of George Floyd’s death.
“We’re all in touch and 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 okay about," he said.
FACTS ABOUT THE SHOW
At the beginning of “Brooklyn Nine-Nine,” Jake and Amy are rivals in the middle of the contest to see who will make the most felony arrests. However, at the end of the first season, it was evident that Jake was developing feelings for Amy.
He opened up about his feelings for her in the season 1 finale despite Amy being in a relationship with Teddy (Kyle Bornheimer). They eventually start dating in season 3, and on the fifth season, Jake used the hijinks of the annual Halloween Heist to propose to Amy in the evidence room, and she said yes.
The pair exchanged vows in the season 5 finale. The ceremony took place in the precinct parking lot, with Captain Holt officiating. Captain Holt was the new commanding officer who replaced C.O Captain McGinty (Mike Hagerty).
His no-nonsense, rule-stickler style was a bit of a shock to the squad, which was already accustomed to the hands-off approach of Captain McGinty. Holt's first command was to demand Peralta to start wearing a tie.
