It seems big followers of the show are also waiting on the edge of their seat, and even spotted an intriguing plot detail in a recent behind-the-scenes photo.

Posting on the show's official Instagram page, Andy Samberg (who plays Jake Peralta), Joe Lo Truglio (who plays Charles Boyle) and Stephanie Beatriz (who plays Rosa Diaz) could all be seen posing for face mask-clad selfie along with the caption: "A little BTS of Season 8 as a treat."

But eagle-eyed fans noticed something a little different about Boyle's new hairstyle, and wondered if the new episodes would see the character's "glow up". One person quipped in the comments: "CHARLES CHANGED HIS HAIRSTYLE??? ARE WE GETTING A CHARLES BOYLE GLOW UP???"

A second person also spotted his new locks, writing: "Boyle's hair??? Ummm HELLO?????" A third fan said: "Joe's hairrrr omg!!", as a fourth wrote: "Boyle. Hair. Me. Love. It."

It's a bittersweet moment for fans because although the new season is back on NBC, it marks the end of the sitcom's run.

The series will be ten episodes long and, according to The Hollywood Reporter, will be returning in between the 2021-2022 broadcast season.
