The American police comedy TV series created by Dan Goor and Michael Schur is soon to come up with its eighth season. The series has seven seasons up to now airing a total of 147 episodes. In November 2019, NBC hinted about the renewal of the show for the eighth season; therefore, we can hope to see the upcoming season around spring 2021.
The comedy series has ratings of 8.4/10 from IMDb, 97% from Rotten Tomatoes, and 7/10 from TV.com, making it one of the most-watched and popular ongoing TV series.
The plot so far!!
The series constructs a fictional world in the 99th Precinct of the New York City Police Department in Brooklyn. It portrays the lives of the members of a team of detectives headed by their newly appointed Captain Raymond Holt, who is extremely serious.
The other members of the team, work in pairs, as:
- Jake Peralta, who has a highly successful career, consisting of a handsome number of solved cases and arrests, despite his chillaxed and naive nature. His partner and love interest, Amy Santiago, is a girl, who is a little nerdy, and at the same time, a little dumb.
- Charles Boyle and his partner Rosa Diaz, who are poles apart from each other. While Charles is the hard-working guy of the team, Rosa is indifferent, unlike her partner. Also, Charles’s shaky nature complements her headstrong and aggressive nature, making the duo an interesting pair.
- Then comes the pair oldies of the team, Michael Hitchcock and his long-time partner Norm Scully forming a lazy and incompetent team.
Also, we see Seagent Terry Jeffords, who is a devoted family man, and fears, that he’d get himself killed in the line of duty.
What can we expect in Season 8?
Season 8 is more likely to focus more on Amy and Jake dealing with the issues of their newly arrived parenthood. Also, Gina is likely to make her comeback to the show in the upcoming season.
The show stars:
- Andy Samberg as Jake Peralta
- Stephanie Beatriz as Rosa Diaz
- Terry Crews as Terry Jeffords
- Melissa Fumero as Amy Santiago
- Joe Lo Truglio as Charles Boyle
- Andre Braugher as Raymond Holt
in the lead roles, with the other members following up. But there’s news about from Terry Crews about a new member being added to the cast. See what he has twitted in the recent past.
