Few sitcoms have captured the imagination of viewers in the way that Brooklyn Nine-Nine has. With its eighth and final season finally here, now is perfect time to binge your way through the hit sitcom. Here’s how to watch Brooklyn Nine-Nine online and stream every hilarious episode no matter you are in the world.
How to watch Brooklyn Nine-Nine
The show first hit screens back in 2013, with Brooklyn Nine-Nine season 8 airing from August 13. 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).
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 from start to finish where you are around the world.
How to watch Brooklyn Nine-Nine from outside your country
If you find yourself abroad in a country where your preferred streaming service isn’t available or you can’t log-in to watch the show as usual, that’s probably down to geo-blocking restrictions.

How to watch Brooklyn Nine-Nine online: stream seasons 1-7 in the UK
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 BST weekly slot, immediately heading to its on-demand service All4 thereafter. That means those with a valid TV licence can watch Brooklyn Nine-Nine free for a limited time when season 8 does drop – just make sure you keep your eyes peeled on each episodes expiration date.
For fans old and new looking to reacquaint themselves with the 99th precinct, you’ll be able to stream all seven seasons on Netflix, with season 8 sure to find itself there a few months after its broadcast in the UK.
There are also various ways you can buy the show, such as through Amazon Prime Video, which is also offering all seven seasons.
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.
