Brooklyn Nine-Nine has suffered its first major departure, with Chelsea Peretti confirming she'll be leaving the show during season six.

Peretti, who plays Gina Linetti, will make her exit during the upcoming sixth season.

Thankfully, she won't be gone for good, writing on Twitter that the news "doesn't mean I won't ever be back".

"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," Peretti wrote on Twitter.

"I want to thank you for the hours you spent watching Gina be Gina: confident, idiotic-but-smart, pithy, and infused with rhythm and cell-phone radiation. It is hard for me to know exactly what to say."

Show co-creator Dan Goor praised Peretti for her work.

"From the moment [co-creator] Mike Schur and I decided to create this show, we wanted Chelsea Peretti to be a part of it, and she always will be," he wrote.

"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."
