It’s time to cry. (Title of our sex tape.)
Brooklyn Nine-Nine just released the first trailer for its final season, and we won’t lie and tell you we didn’t absolutely tear up as Boyle and Jake prepared to say goodbye. We don’t know why Boyle is worried that his time with Jake is coming to an end, and we also don’t know why he’s wearing a giant fur coat, but we do know that that sad piano music is really tugging at our heartstrings.
The tears quickly gave way to shock and horror as the promo revealed that Holt might have accidentally sent someone a d–k pic, but the sentiment remains: It’s going to be hard to say goodbye to this show.
The trailer declares, “In the face of crisis, chaos, and childcare, one team will rise for one last ride,” and it’s a very big whoop. The trailer features a mix of new and old footage and includes appearances from a few fan faves of the Nine-Nine, including Adrian Pimento (Jason Mantzoukas), Kevin (Marc Evan Jackson), Doug Judy (Craig Robinson), Trudy Judy (Nicole Byer), and even Gina Linetti (Chelsea Peretti), who left the show in season six.
When season seven ended in May 2020, show creator Dan Goor promised that Gina would “100 percent” be back, so it’s certainly nice to see her face, and it will be even nicer to find out what she’s been up to in her absence.
Season seven ended with the birth of McClane “Mac” Santiago-Peralta. (Obviously, he was named after John McClane from Die Hard.) The trailer shows Jake and Amy having a miscommunication over picking him up from daycare, which goes along with what Goor said about the parenting journey ahead.
Brooklyn Nine-Nine returns Thursday, Aug. 12 on NBC.
