Amy Santiago actress Melissa Fumero also shared an emotional tweet about filming her final scenes. "Tomorrow begins the final week of filming #Brooklyn99," she wrote. "It's very surreal. Trying to stay hyper present, take in all the little moments, and trying to find a moment with each person on our wonderful crew without full on bursting into tears." 

News of the show's cancellation came in February. At the time, the show's co-creator Dan Goor said on Twitter: "I'm so thankful to NBC and Universal Television for allowing us to give these characters and our fans the ending they deserve."
