Fans of the beloved police sitcom Brooklyn Nine-Nine have reacted with dismay as the series aired its last ever episode last night (16 September).
The series starred Andy Samberg as an ace police detective, alongside Melissa Fumero, Stephanie Beatriz, Andre Braugher, Terry Crews and Joe Lo Truglio.

Crews, who plays Terry Jeffords, wrote: “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.”
Fumero wrote: “This finale was made with a lot of love, a lot of joy, a lot of laughter, and even some tears. We hope you love it as much as we do. Nine Nine Forever.”
“This final episode was made with all you fans in mind,” wrote Lo Truglio. “We’re so grateful for our time with you. Hope you dig it.”
Braugher wrote: “What can I say? Words cannot express how much you all mean to me and how proud I am that #Brooklyn99 means so much to all of you. It’s been nothing but a pleasure and I thank you from the bottom of my heart.”
Fans shared their own devastation about the series’ conclusion on social media.
