Brooklyn Nine-Nine fans have been riding an ongoing emotional rollercoaster since the show was cancelled by Fox and then saved by NBC, and now Chelsea Peretti has thrown them for another loop by announcing her departure from the show.
She revealed via Twitter that her beloved character Gina Linetti would be leaving the show before the end of the upcoming season.
"I won't be doing a full season of Brooklyn Nine-Nine in Season 6," she wrote. "But that doesn't mean I won't ever be back."
She thanked fans "for the hours you spent watching Gina be Gina: confident, idiotic-but-smart, pithy, and infused with rhythm and cell-phone radiation," before sharing an edited version of Emmy Rossum's goodbye letter to Shameless.
Amongst the key phrases Peretti bolded were "There are these real connections, real friendships that bring us back season after season after season, " "We have made over 100 hours of television" and "I taught Emma to shave her legs."

The next season of Brooklyn Nine-Nine is expected to arrive in early 2019.
