Brooklyn Nine-Nine to Scrap All Episodes Written for Season 8, Terry Crews Says: 'We Have to Start Over'
Brooklyn Nine-Nine is back on the drawing board in the face of recent nationwide police violence protests.
The NBC cop comedy will return for an eighth season, but actor Terry Crews told Access Daily that the writers scrapped all the episodes they wrote for the next season and started over. "Our showrunner Dan Goor had four episodes and just threw them in the trash," said Crews. “We have to start over. We currently do not know which direction it will take. "(TVLine asked NBC for a comment.)

The cast spoke about how to address the issues of systemic racism and police brutality in the coming season. Crews added, "We have had a lot of dark and deep conversations about it, and we hope we will. We will do something that will be truly groundbreaking this year. We have a chance and plan to make the best use of it. "
Brooklyn Nine-Nine with Andy Samberg as a goofy NYPD detective usually focuses on the easier side of policing, but has dealt with serious issues in the past, including a season four episode in which Crews' character is racially profiled by a white man became a police officer during his free time in his own neighborhood. Earlier this month, the cast and Goor donated $ 100,000 to the National Bail Fund Network, saying they "condemn George Floyd's murder and support the many people who are protesting police brutality nationwide."
