Critic 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.

News & Interviews for Brooklyn Nine-Nine: Season 5
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.
