We have good news and bad news regarding Brooklyn Nine-Nine.

The bad news is that Chelsea Peretti has announced that she is leaving the series.

The 40-year-old plays the precinct’s lovable civilian administrator, Gina Linetti, who actively avoids doing any work while inserting quips into every conversation around the office.

“B99 fans. Hiiiiiiiiiiii. Chelsea Peretti, here. 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,” she wrote on Facebook.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine showrunner, Dan Groor, has spoken highly of Peretti saying, “She has brought so much to her amazing, hilarious, unique portrayal of Gina Linetti, which is not surprising since she is one of the funniest people in history. We have tried really hard to create a storyline for her departure that lives up to the character that can only be described as ‘The human embodiment of the 100 emoji.’”

We’ll miss you, Chelsea!
