The Brooklyn Nine-Nine cast, celebrities and fans had a lot to say as their favorite police sitcom finally came to an end. And it was very emotional!
Top detective Jake Peralta, played by comedian-producer Andy Samberg, retired his badge together with the cast and crew of the 99th precinct.
As Captain Holt proposed a toast, the officers—actors Andy Samberg, Joe Lo Truglio, Melissa Fumero, Joel McKinnon Miller, Andre Braugher, Stephanie Beatriz, and Terry Crews—shared what they thought of the whole experience. To sum it all: It was very “noice”!
Mark Hamill, a.k.a. Luke Skywalker in Star Wars, has a soft spot for the sitcom. Fun fact: He’s also one of the Guardians of the Nine-Nine!
I'm really gonna miss this show. @nbcbrooklyn99 was funny, unique & unpredictable with one of the best ensemble cast of actors on television. Thanks for all the laughs #99! ??#BrooklynByeBye https://t.co/0igHWwLwjs— Mark Hamill (Mar?) (@HamillHimself) September 17, 2021
Terry Crews also expressed his gratitude to the show.
What an adventure!! This show has meant so much to me over the years and I know it means a lot to all of you. Thank you, lots of love, and NINE-NINE FOREVER!!!! #Brooklyn99— terry crews (@terrycrews) September 17, 2021
“Thanks for everything Nine Niners,” Fumero wrote in her tweet on the show’s finale.
This show has been one of the greatest joys of my life. I am so damn proud of this finale. I won’t be live tweeting tonight. I want you all to just watch it and soak up every second. I hope you love it as much we loved making it. Thanks for everything Nine Niners. #ninenine pic.twitter.com/bdLxEVD886— Melissa Fumero ?? #SOSCuba (@melissafumero) September 16, 2021
Add a grateful Joe Lo Truglio to the mix. As everyone’s best friend, his character Charles Boyle is going to be missed by fans.
This final episode was made with all you fans in mind. We’re so grateful for our time with you. Hope you dig it. ??❤️ https://t.co/8NR56g1IXt— JoeLoTruglio (@JoeLoTruglio) September 16, 2021
Andy Samberg’s video message hit right in the feels as he told Nine-Niners, “You’ve made the last eight years pretty ‘toit.’”
Here’s one for the books. Fan or not, you can never forget the iconic Season 5, Episode 17’s DFW, featuring Backstreet Boys’ I Want It That Way, which went viral in most social media platforms. Only Detective Jake Peralta can make criminals sing and catch the real culprit.
“Chills, literal chills!”
* Spoiler Alert! Contains some details of the Brooklyn 99 series finale *
The plot did not disappoint as fans enjoyed the heist theme for the last time with the series bringing in their favorite characters for a proper goodbye.
From guest stars to former cast member Chelsea Peretti (Gina Linetti), whom we last saw in season 6, we got laughs. Just watching the trio of Rosa, Gina, and Amy can be emotional!
Other recurring characters had cameos as well, according to Deadline.
Seems like a lot of fans can relate to Captain Holt as they watched the finale. And they didn’t forget to include the wall smash scene.
Even Andy Samberg’s wife, Joanna Newsom’s cameo, was celebrated by fans. What a scene!
Not only did the series portray police-themed workplace comedy, they were not afraid of tackling relevant issues like police brutality in their own language of humor. More than that, we also got to see relationships blossom and characters develop at the end of the show, especially for Jake and Amy, and Captain Holt. And, of course, who could forget their classic “title of your sex tape” joke?
Oh why am I SCREAMING and CRYING you ask oh just because this father/son relationship ended on the best note and with Holy calling him his son and sharing a “title of your sex tape” joke ???#BrooklynNineNine #brooklyn99 pic.twitter.com/4A8koA5L6R— Sharpwin Breakdown??♀️ (@rosy_sharpe) September 17, 2021
People were not ready to move on. Who said we should?
And in case it’s still not your favorite show, here’s a reason to make you think twice.
Man, I still can’t believe #BrooklynNineNine is over… That was such a staple in my teen years and early adult hood. That show was such a reliable source of happiness and I’m going to miss it so much. I truly believe it’s the greatest sitcom ever made. pic.twitter.com/fjWCoDtmLM— Knuckle Head (@Knuckle_HeadTV) September 17, 2021
Evan Susser, screenwriter for Brooklyn Nine-Nine, said his farewell message on Twitter. While an emotional video message from Melissa Fumero via Entertainment Weekly had fans in tears.
I'm late to tweeting about the #BrooklynNineNine finale because of Yom Kippur. What can I say that hasn't been said? Writing on the show brought me a lot of naches. The cast and crew was full of mensches. !תֵשַׁע תֵשַׁע— Evan Susser (@EvanSusser) September 17, 2021
