Season eight of the popular cop show Brooklyn Nine-Nine will air later this year.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine show bosses have confirmed that season eight is in the works, predicting its US debut will fall sometime this Autumn, all going well. According to reports, season seven boasted the show's highest audience ratings to date so there's sure to be more than a few eager fans awaiting its return.

It's unclear yet what the eight season of the popular cop show will have in store though star Terry Crews, who plays Sergeant Terry Jeffords, recently said that it will be strongly influenced by the ongoing Black Lives Matter protests happening around the world.

Centred on the exploits of Jake Peralta and his colleagues at the 99th precinct in Brooklyn, Crews acknowledged that both the cast and the crew will have to seriously consider how best to approach the next season.

Speaking to Seth Meyers on his late-night talk show, the actor said:

"We actually all got on a Zoom call just the other day, because of what's happening in this country and we were witnessing so many abuses of power.

We had some sombre talks and some really, really eye-opening conversation about how to handle this new season."

Six seasons have landed on Irish Netflix so far, but hopefully, season seven will drop before the Autumn to make sure we're fully caught up on matters in the 99th precinct.
