Chelsea Peretti Is Leaving Brooklyn Nine-Nine: "Thank You For Watching Gina Be Gina"
After five seasons, Chelsea Peretti is leaving Brooklyn Nine-Nine. The actress, who plays receptionist Gina Linetti on the hit cop comedy, announced the sad news via Twitter on Wednesday. "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," she wrote, before thanking fans of the show for "the hours you spent watching Gina be Gina."
Brooklyn Nine-Nine was canceled by Fox in May, and the backlash was swift: fans of the show were in a rage, and just one day after its cancellation, the series was renewed for a sixth season on NBC. While Peretti didn't explain her reasons for leaving the show, she did repost the letter that Emmy Rossum recently wrote to announce her departure from Showtime's Shameless. "Perhaps Emmy Rossum said it best when she wrote about Shameless," she tweeted, adding, "I bolded the extra relevant parts in her quote below."
