The hugely popular police comedy was renewed for season eight back in 2020, with new episodes expected to air in the US in 2021 before premiering on Netflix in the UK. The cast has recently opened up about making the police show amid the George Floyd protests, with Andy Samberg telling TV Web: "We're taking a step back, and the writers are all rethinking how we're going to move forward, as well as the cast.

Are you looking forward to season seven on Netflix?

"We're all in touch and kind of discussing how you make a comedy show about police right now, and if we can find a way of doing that that we all feel morally okay about. I know that we'll figure it out, but it's definitely a challenge, so we'll see how it goes."

Terry Crews added: "A lot of sombre talks about it and deep conversations and we hope through this we're going to make something that will be truly ground-breaking this year. We have an opportunity here, and we plan to use it in the best way possible."
