Few sitcoms have captured the imagination of viewers in the way that Brooklyn Nine-Nine has. Now in its seventh season, the show is perfect to binge if you're struggling for inspiration while self-isolating. Here's how to watch Brooklyn Nine-Nine online - stream the season 7 finale and every other hilarious episode no matter you are in the world.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine season 7 cheat sheet

Brooklyn Nine-Nine season 7 premiered on February 6, 2020 in the US, where it's hosted by NBC. The season finale, episode 13 'Lights Out', airs April 23 in America. Fans of the show once famously dumped by FOX need not fear - an eighth season has already been commissioned. While it's currently on NBC, seasons 1-6 can be easily streamed on Hulu in the US.

The show first hit screens back in 2013, while Brooklyn Nine-Nine season 7 premiered on February 6 this year. It's been a huge hit since its inception; in fact, there was such an outcry after FOX cancelled the show after it 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). And for good measure, Brooklyn Nine-Nine season 7 adds some serious acting chops in the form of Oscar-winner and TV acting legend J.K. Simmons (Whiplash, Spider-man trilogy, Oz).

If that doesn't sound that hilarious to you, just know that 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 recent hit The Good Place.

Convinced? Great. Here's how to watch Brooklyn Nine online - stream season 7 and the rest of the show from anywhere in the world.
