I'd start scheming if I were you: We'll officially be blessed with another Halloween Heist next fall, which as you know, means you've still got a chance of landing the crown of 'Ultimate Detective,' - that is, if Jake Peralta doesn't beat you to it.

Over the weekend, Brooklyn Nine-Nine released some pretty big news, and we have a feeling you're going to be very happy about it. Luckily, we've got everything you need to know...

The sitcom's official account took to Twitter on Friday, August 28, to gave us a much-needed update on the status of the hit series' future. And, well, it even has Captain Holt losing his cool...

So, what exactly did they say? "*Capt. Holt voice* We're in a state of total euphoria. #Brooklyn99 returns in 2021 on @NBC, streaming on @PeacockTV," the show revealed. That's right, Captain Holt and our favorite other crime stoppers aren't going anywhere just yet.

Sadly, though, there's no definite word yet on, well, when, exactly, we can catch the 99th precinct on our screens again. If you ask Sergeant Terry Jeffords, it might be farther away than we'd like.

As the actor revealed to Access Daily, "our showrunner Dan Goor, they had four episodes all ready to go, and they just threw them in the trash. We have to start over. Right now, we don't know which direction it's going to go in."

While this means we'll probably be waiting quite a while for the return of our favorite precinct, something tells us it's gonna be well worth the wait. No doubt, no doubt, I'd stay tuned if I were you.
