Fans of the offbeat live-action police procedural sitcom Brooklyn Nine-Nine can rejoice, as it's been confirmed that there's an eighth season in the works, but it seems the news is very bittersweet.
Now, fans have rallied for one final cameo appearance from Bruce Willis, and with good reason ...
It all may be coming to an end, but it doesn't mean we can't re-live it all over again.
The news that the eighth season will be it's last has shocked fans, but after reading Dan Goor's statement as to why they came to this decision, we're slowly settling with the news.
And it looks like fans have one final wish...
First hitting our screens in 2013, Brooklyn Nine-Nine quickly gained a cult following.
It tells the story of a younger, less experienced cop finding his feet in Brooklyn's 99th district, alongside a team of memorable characters.
There are many reasons for the show's loyal fanship.
The writing on the show is often praised for being highly hilarious - plus the stars of the show often exhibit excellent comic timing.
Which isn't to say it's been without its issues.
In fact, the series was canceled by Fox after 5 seasons, citing low viewing figures. Luckily for fans, it was quickly picked up by NBC, where it's undergone something of a renaissance.
But there's one thing fans of the show might not realize.

They have been pretty tight-lipped with the official release date, but at least we have something to look forward to this year.
The 8th and final season will be tackling the Black Lives Matter movement with Joe Lo Truglio telling LADbible this...
He mentioned that "the writers had decided that 'all the stories had been told' after 153 episodes."
And now it was time to tackle one of the biggest movements in American history.
"We've dipped out toe in the water with more serious issues - Terry's racial profiling, Rosa's bisexuality, sexism - so it made it easier for us to have that conversation about Black Lives Matter.
"We've shown that we can do comedy, but we can also tackle those big social issues too."
Of course, fans are a little disappointed, but most are not surprised...
All good things do need to come to an end in order to stop it's decline.
They have described season 8 as one more "victory lap."
"The way I see it, if this is to be our last ride then let us go out in a blaze of glory." pic.twitter.com/HBVVV5cRJc— Brooklyn Nine-Nine (@nbcbrooklyn99) February 11, 2021
So when it does come out, let's enjoy it... And then rewatch every single season all over again.
But fans do have one final request.
