It's time for Gina's opinion, but you might not like it.
"Brooklyn Nine-Nine" star Chelsea Peretti has announced that she's leaving the sitcom. Her time as the quirky Gina Linetti dates back to Season 1, but she'll only be around for part of Season 6, according to an Oct. 3 tweet. Peretti broke the news to the fans but also hinted that she could return in some capacity in the future.
"B99 fans. Hiiiiiiiiiiii. Chelsea Peretti, here," she wrote. "I won't be doing a full season of Brooklyn Nine Nine in Season 6. But that doesn't mean I won't ever be back, winky face emoji, heart emoji. I want to thank you for the hours you spent watching Gina be Gina."
In a second tweet, Peretti expanded on some of Gina's special qualities, namely that she is "confident, idiotic-but-smart, pithy, and infused with rhythm and cell-phone radiation." She then tweeted again, this time with the statement Emmy Rossum wrote when she recently announced her "Shameless" departure, featuring the parts Peretti found "extra relevant" to her situation in bold.
Let's hope this really is more of a "see you later" than "goodbye."
"Brooklyn Nine-Nine" Season 6 doesn't have a release date yet, but it will premiere during the 2018-19 TV season on its new home, NBC.
