Sad “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” Is Ending? Here’s Other Content To Watch

We understand why Brooklyn Nine-Nine fans are sad to see the sitcom come to a close, so we’ve compiled a list of similar content that devoted viewers will be sure to enjoy.

The hilarious NBC sitcom Brooklyn Nine-Nine has officially announced that Season 8, premiering on August 12th, will be its final season of the series. If you can’t imagine you’re life without the comedy, don’t worry, we’re providing a guide to similar Brooklyn Nine-Nine content for dedicated fans to look forward to once the show ends.

The Office

Probably one of – if not THE – most popular sitcom series amongst Millennials and Gen Z-ers alike are The Office. But did you know that the creators of Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Dan Goor and Michael Schur, also worked on The Office together? You might notice some similarities in humor between the two shows, and now you know why. In fact, Schur also plays the role of Dwight’s cousin Mose. If you’ve already seen The Office, why not give it a re-watch? If you haven’t, we recommend bringing the series multiple times.

Parks and Recreation

You thought that the Goor-Schur teamwork was only done on two shows? Not quite. Parks and Recreation, created by Greg Daniels, is another series that Goor and Schur also worked on. Goor and Schur’s second mockumentary they contributed together is nothing short of a success and features a talented cast including Amy Poehler, Rashida Jones, Nick Offerman, Aubrey Plaza, and Chris Pratt (just to name a few). In fact, numerous actors have starred in both Brooklyn Nine-Nine and Parks and Recreation; find out who below!

The Good Place

If you learn one thing from this article, it’s that Michael Schur is an absolute legend in the world of modern sitcoms. Although shorter than other series he worked on, all 4 seasons of The Good Place flow perfectly and are easy to watch. Additionally, the series provides very philosophical ideas and encourages its viewers to draw their own conclusions about what happens after death. Despite the theme of death, The Good Place is bright and quirky, and also features a few familiar faces to the 99th precinct.

Rutherford Falls

Yup, you guessed it. Another Michael Schur creation. This new Peacock original series can un-mistakingly be compared to the setting and plot of Parks and Recreation combined with the humor of The Good Place. Starring The Office veteran Ed Helms, Rutherford Falls is sure to please those who are fans of Schur’s work. The series can be streamed on Peacock.

Hot Rod

If you can’t get enough of Jake Peralta’s immaturity and sarcasm, then Hot Rod is highly recommended for you. The comedy film, starring Andy Samberg, centers around “stuntman” Rod Kimble. Kimble trains to perform his biggest stunt yet in order to raise money for his stepfather’s surgery, while also attempting to impress his long-time crush.

Homicide: Life on the Street

Before his role as determined and dry-humored Captain Raymond Holt, Andre Braugher was a cop in the 1993 crime series Homicide: Life on the Street. Although not a comedy, it’s fascinating to see Andre Braugher in his first police role as an even more serious character than Captain Holt. Below, Andre talks on the TODAY show about his transition from his dramatic work to his current comedic role.

Chelsea Peretti: One of the Greats

If you love Gina Linetti’s sense of humor as much as I do, then you’ll love Chelsea Peretti’s stand-up comedy special on Netflix, One of the Greats. It is not surprising to see some similarities between Chelsea’s comedy and Gina’s hilarious comments in Brooklyn Nine-Nine. Described by Netflix as raunchy, witty, and irreverent, One of the Greats will have you LOLing the entire time.

Although all good things must come to an end, fans will undoubtedly miss seeing the adventures of the crew at the 99th precinct. Despite the conclusion of Brooklyn Nine-Nine, we will continue re-watching the series for continual laughs and to share relatable moments with the characters. Let’s celebrate the incredibly awesome series with one last hurrah: “NINE-NINE!”
