Brooklyn Nine-Nine fans, rejoice! It's time for the return of the Pontiac Bandit – although not in the way you'd expect.

Following Andy Samberg's latest big-screen project Palm Springswhich was very well received – the Brooklyn Nine-Nine star is teaming up with his on-off partner in crime for a brand new movie.

Yep, Jake Peralta and Doug Judy are back together again, with Deadline reporting that Samberg and Craig Robinson are to team up in upcoming superhero movie, Super High.

Super High, which will be written by Go the F**k to Sleep's Adam Mansbach, is set to be a superhero movie with a serious twist, where mere mortals are granted powers by a special strain of weed. Radioactive spiders, who?

We'll be waiting a while for Super High to hit cinemas, but fortunately season eight of Brooklyn Nine-Nine isn't too far away.

Speaking about the weight of expectation on the upcoming instalment, which will address the Black Lives Matter movement, B99's Andre Braugher shared his hopes for a "groundbreaking season".

"Can a comedy sustain the things that we're trying to talk about? I don't know," he said. "It could be a really groundbreaking season that we're all going to be very, very proud of, or we're going to fall flat on our face.

"But I think this is a staff, a cast and a crew that's willing to take it on and give it our best. I think we have a damn good chance to tell the kinds of stories that heretofore have only been seen on grittier shows."

Brooklyn Nine-Nine airs on NBC in the US. E4 aired season 7 in the UK, with seasons 1-6 available on Netflix.
