It’s been revealed by Terry Crews that four new episodes of Brooklyn Nine-Nine Season 7 were ‘thrown in the trash’ after George Floyd’s death.

We are living in very strange but also hopeful times today.

We are still in the midst of a coronavirus pandemic.

There are protests happening all over the world following George Floyd’s death.

There’s police brutality, yet people are now saying enough’s enough and demanding change.

This has spilled into the world of entertainment and specifically Brooklyn Nine-Nine Season 7.

You might have noticed that there have been no new episodes of the hit police comedy series.

According to Terry Crews, this is because those new episodes were cancelled following George Floyd’s death.

“We have an opportunity and we plan to use it in the best way possible,” he added.

Crews then revealed that co-creator Dan Goor had four episodes “all ready to go” before Mr Floyd’s death.
