JIRA Server 8.4.2   & scriptRunner

Creating a Custom scripted field in script runner 

Field Name : "Parent Labels"

script being used is :

      return (issue.parentObject != null) ? issue.parentObject.getLabels() : null;


Value it returns is when looking at subtasks in search is showing the list of labels from the parent ok.  Problem the labels are enclosed in brackets .

  For example :        [label_one, label_two, label_three]


Tried to use replaceAll but could not get that to work removing the "[" or "]" and would end up not returning anything.


Would like to be able to have it return as :    label_one, label_two, label_three
