Brooklyn Nine-Nine

Critics Consensus

Brooklyn Nine-Nine's final year with Fox pops with such joyous affection that it could have been a satisfying closer for the series, but the ensemble's unflappable chemistry continues to gel so well that viewers will be glad that these cops will live to fight crime again.

Critic Reviews for Brooklyn Nine-Nine Season 5

All Critics (13) | Top Critics (4)

The kinds of comedies people attach to at this level are often a lot more offbeat and niche-y than this... "Brooklyn" is not like that; it's a very silly, very big-hearted ensemble workplace show. It's just very good at it.

And after five years, the show has figured out just how to make sure all of those elements work together - just like the oddball cops of the 99th precinct, who started off as co-workers and now feel like a family.

Would have been a satisfying enough ending to the series, [but] the season 5 finale does a better job of demonstrating why the show deserved to be saved from cancelation.

Samberg's goofy energy has always been a perfect foil for Braugher's grounded gravitas, but they find themselves a worthy scene partner in [Sterling K.] Brown, who barely blinks when thrown into their chaotic midst.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine, which in its fifth season not only delivered a remarkably consistent set of episodes, but several of its most inventive, entertaining, and yes, important installments so far.

Relief comes from knowing that it isn't over. Now fans will simply have to tune in on NBC to see what comes next with this merry band of NYPD cops.

It never gets old! I love seeing the different members of the precinct show up for each other and revel in each other's joys.

Jun 18, 2018 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

The cop comedy has remained consistently excellent with nary a weak link in its cast.

May 29, 2018 | Full Review…

Braugher plays Raymond Holt like his face should be carved into Mount Rushmore... He is magnificent.

Jan 9, 2019 | Full Review…

But Brooklyn Nine-Nine knows that it has to milk at least some situational material out of sending two of its own to prison, which is what we get here.

Will they make it out alive?

Sep 27, 2017 | Full Review…

At it's core, the show has always been at its best when it focuses on the heart at the center of the series, that being the inner workings and relationships of the characters.

    This show was great but this season lacked the creativity of the earlier ones. Amy's character became more and more dumbed down and the love plot between Amy and Jake was incredibly dull.

    it should have ended here

    One of the best shows on tv. Always hilarious, well-written, superbly acted... when it comes to comedies, it's in a class of its own!

    This is hilarious and stupid at the same time, this is what makes it such a great show to watch. It is less silly than past seasons, but still has more than it's fair share of weird moments. Season 5 brings the great characters closer together with more entertaining moments but actually carries with it some emotional and important messages hidden underneath all the jokes.

    I truly love this show. I had heard chatter of it, and binged it all in one month. Now that I finished it all, other than the seasons that have yet to be released, and I rewatch episodes over and over again. This show will have you laughing, crying, and even smiling. At this point, the advanced character development makes you feel like they are real people somewhere. For this same reason though, it can also make you sad because you're forced to realize they're just tv characters. On a scale of 1-5, this show gets 5.9 billion. Best show I've ever seen. A few inappropriate jokes hear and there, but they'll fly over a younger kids head.
