Not many shows have had fans go to battle for them, but Brooklyn Nine-Nine has certainly been through the wars as its original network, Fox, dropped it, only for NBC to pick it up the next day following outcry. However, it's time to bid farewell to the 99th Precinct as the cast hand over their metaphorical badge and gun in the sitcom's eighth and final season. And it looks as though all our questions will be answered, wrapping on our beloved Jake, Amy, Rosa, Holt, and the rest.

How will Jake and Amy handle having a baby? Will Holt get promoted to commissioner? 

Fans can be reassured of a satisfying ending, though, with the directors, Michael Schur and Dan Goor, experts in this field. Between the two of them they've helped write or direct Parks and Recreations, The Good Place, episodes of The Office, SNL and a host of other TV classics.

Ready for one last ride? We've listed everything you need to know about how to watch Brooklyn Nine-Nine season 8 online where you are. 

How to watch Brooklyn Nine-Nine season 8 from outside your country

A VPN allows you to watch your favorite show from anywhere in the world. It does this by changing your IP address to one in the country you live in normally. Here's everything you need to know to get started:

How to watch Brooklyn Nine-Nine season 8 online in the US


Season 8 of Brooklyn Nine-Nine airs in the US on NBC. It premiered on Thursday, August 12, and will air two new episodes every Thursday at 8pm ET / PT, with its final two episodes scheduled for September 16.

If you have cable, you can simply watch NBC. Don't have cable? Strangely, you won't be able to catch new episodes via NBC's on demand service Peacock TV. 

However, for cord cutters, you can opt for a more cable-like experience by subscribing to either Sling TV or FuboTV, both of which offer NBC as a part of its host of live TV channel streams. The Sling Blue plan offers NBC alongside 40+ other channels, costing just $10 for your first month, while you can get FuboTV's Starter Plan with a 7-day free trial and hosting 100+ live channels.

You also have the option of both Hulu or Hulu with Live TV. You'll need the latter if you wish to stream NBC and watch new episodes live. Alternatively, you can wait until the following day when new episodes land on Hulu's $5.99 a month baseline plan with ads. All Hulu plans come with a Hulu free trial, spanning from 7 to 30-days depending on which you opt for.

Of course, if you happen to be out of the country when this latest season airs, you will find the content is geo-blocked. However, you can resolve this issue via the use of a VPN, like ExpressVPN.

How to watch Brooklyn Nine-Nine season 8 online in the UK


Sadly for fans of the show in the UK, no official date has been announced yet. While it will be airing on E4 like all of the previous seasons (and then available on All4 after), you'll have to wait a bit longer to catch it.

In previous years, the show has followed to the UK shortly after within a month or so. This means we should hear announcements of premiere dates soon.

For now, fans can catch all of the previous seasons of Brooklyn Nine-Nine in the UK on Netflix. All seven seasons are available on there which gives you plenty of time for a rewatch before season 8 lands.

Canadians fans are in a similar boat to those in the US, getting all new episodes of Brooklyn Nine-Nine season 8 every Thursday, airing on Citytv at 8pm ET / PT. This means the final two episodes will air on September 16.
