There is nothing quite like the dedicated viewership of the beloved Brooklyn Nine-Nine.

Wherever you are, here's how to watch Brooklyn Nine-Nine online and stream every last moment of its 151-episode run.

How to watch Brooklyn Nine-Nine

Air dates: 2013-2021

Total season: 8 (151 episodes)

Creators: Dan Goor and Michael Schur

Cast: Andy Samberg, Stephanie Beatriz, Terry Crews, Melissa Fumero, Joe Lo Truglio, Chelsea Peretti

Streaming options: NBC / Peacock (US) / Netflix (UK, CA, Au)

The show first hit screens back in 2013, with Brooklyn Nine-Nine season 8 airing from August 12-September 16. It's been a huge hit since its inception; in fact, there was such an outcry after FOX cancelled the show after its fifth season that NBC snapped up the rights to Brooklyn Nine-Nine...the very next day.

The Emmy and Golden Globe-winning series follows a team of mismatched detectives in the fictional 99th Precinct of the NYPD in Brooklyn. Broadly speaking, it centers around the quirky relationship between Jake Peralta, an immature but talented detective played by Andy Samberg, and his commanding officer, the overly serious but eccentric Captain Raymond Holt (Andre Braugher).

If that doesn't sound that hilarious to you, it's worth knowing Brooklyn Nine-Nine is another collaboration between Dan Goor and Michael Schur, the duo behind Parks and Recreation. Further bolstering Brooklyn Nine-Nine's credentials, Goor has also worked on The Daily Show, while Schur is behind the hugely popular The Good Place.

Convinced? Great. Here's how to watch Brooklyn Nine online from start to finish where you are around the world.

Can I watch Brooklyn Nine-Nine on Netflix?

It's good news for Netflix subscribers, as Brooklyn Nine-Nine is available to stream on many of the service's international platforms.

However, what Brooklyn Nine-Nine seasons you can watch on Netflix will vary by region, with details below on where you can stream older episodes where you are.

For fans old and new looking to reacquaint themselves with the 99th precinct, you'll be able to stream all seven seasons on Netflix in the UK, with season 8 sure to find itself there a few months after it's broadcast in the UK.

A Netflix subscription starts from £5.99 a month with the option to choose from two other plans offering more simultaneous streams and higher resolutions. 

No matter which plan you opt for, you'll be able to watch Netflix across a number of devices, including desktop on Windows and Mac, on dedicated iOS and Android apps for smartphones and tablets, as well as on media streamers like Apple TV, Fire Stick, Roku. Also watch Netflix on PlayStation and Xbox gaming consoles, and select smart TVs.

While a date has yet to be confirmed for season 8 airing in the UK, we expect it to head straight to E4 at its usual 9pm weekly slot, immediately heading to its on-demand service All4 thereafter.

There are also various ways you can buy the show, such as through Amazon Prime Video, which is also offering all seven seasons, though you'll have to pay per season or episode.

If you're currently out of the UK for whatever reason and can't access your usual streaming service, remember you can always just grab a VPN and point yourself back to Blighty to watch your favorite shows as usual.
