News that's noice, tight and cool cool cool hasn't been the norm over the past year or so, including when US TV network NBC announced that Brooklyn Nine-Nine would end after its next (and eighth) season. That revelation sparked plenty of questions, all of varying degrees of importance. One of the most crucial: how many more times will Jake Peralta (Andy Samberg) say "title of your sex tape"?

Other essential queries have been running through B99 fans' minds since then, of course. So, if you've been wondering what this last batch of ten episodes will have in store for Brooklyn's fictional 99th police precinct, how the series will wrap up and if Gina Linetti (Chelsea Peretti) will make a final appearance — and how much more yoghurt can Terry Jeffords (Terry Crews) eat, too — you're not alone. Thankfully, in just a couple of weeks, answers will start flowing. That's when Brooklyn Nine-Nine's last season will hit screens for a final farewell.

Come Friday, August 13, SBS On Demand and SBS will start both streaming and airing the show's last batch of episodes, starting with a double to kick things off, then dropping further eps week by week. Back in May, US network NBC revealed that Brooklyn Nine-Nine's last season would launch following the Tokyo Olympics — and it also dropped a teaser trailer — so, given that SBS has fast-tracked recent seasons, this is both an unsurprising and overwhelmingly welcome development.

How many times Die Hard will get a mention before the series says "yippee-ki-yay" for the last time? How will Peralta and Amy Santiago (Melissa Fumero) handle parenthood? What other tidbits will Rosa Diaz (Stephanie Beatriz) drop about her past in passing? Which crazy food items will Hitchcock (Dirk Blocker) and Scully (Joel McKinnon Miller) eat? They're some of the other questions you're probably now pondering, as well as exactly what else the whole gang — including Charles Boyle (Joe Lo Truglio) and Raymond Holt (Andre Braugher), of course — will get up to.

If you'd like to start planning your own Halloween heist now in celebration — yes, a few months early — that's perfectly understandable.

Check out the teaser trailer for Brooklyn Nine-Nine's final season below:

The first two episodes of Brooklyn Nine-Nine's eighth and final season will be able to stream via SBS On Demand (and to view on SBS) on Friday, August 13, with new episodes dropping weekly afterwards.
