Stewart, the corgi who portrayed Captain Raymond Holt’s canine Cheddar on Brooklyn Nine-Nine, has handed away on the age of 13. The unhappy information was confirmed by Stewart’s proprietor, who took to Instagram to substantiate that Stewart spent his remaining day at his favourite place (the seaside) earlier than being peacefully put to sleep by their veterinarian.

Introduced in season 1’s “The Party”, Cheddar is a Pembroke Welsh Corgi owned by Holt and his husband, Kevin Cozner, and has appeared in a number of well-known Brooklyn Nine-Nine episodes thus far. Starting in season 4, Cheddar turned a staple of the present’s annual Halloween heist episodes, and even performed a task in season 6’s alternative heist episode, “Cinco de Mayo”. His different well-known appearances embrace season 3’s “Cheddar” (the place Cheddar’s by chance set free whereas Jake Peralta and Amy Santiago are house-sitting for Holt) and season 5’s “Jake & Amy”, wherein Cheddar is supposed to be Jake and Amy’s ring bearer, however passes out after consuming their marriage ceremony cake (itself, modeled after Nakatomi Plaza from Die Hard).

After being portrayed by a number of canine in his earlier appearances, Stewart took over the function of Cheddar in season 4. His house owners posted the next message to substantiate his passing this week:

Brooklyn Nine-Nine‘s first 5 seasons aired on Fox, however the present was cancelled in May 2018 and purchased by NBC shortly thereafter. The latter community had truly handed on the unique Brooklyn Nine-Nine pilot years earlier and can be the house of the cult comedy collection The Good Place, which is run by Brooklyn Nine-Nine co-creator Michael Schur. Brooklyn Nine-Nine loved a big scores enhance following its premiere on NBC in January and has since been renewed for a seventh season that may air in 2019-2020.

It’s not clear but how the Brooklyn Nine-Nine writers plan to deal with Stewart’s passing, or whether or not it is going to affect the collection in any respect. Cheddar, as talked about, has been performed by totally different pups up to now, so the present’s writing employees might elect to both usher in a brand new canine to painting him or just not have Cheddar seem within the fast future (if ever once more). On the opposite hand, Brooklyn Nine-Nine hasn’t been afraid to discover dramatic storylines up to now, and even tackled the dying of Charles Boyle’s canine within the season Three episode “9 Days”. That’s to say, the collection might determine to have Cheddar cross away and provides the wonderful doggo – and, by proxy, Stewart – the becoming, touching, onscreen sendoff that he deserves.
