Cops’ six-year run on Paramount Network and its predecessor has concluded. Pulled a week ago in the aftermath of George Floyd’s passing, the series won’t be returning.
“Cops is not on the Paramount Network and we don’t have any current or plans for it to return,” a Paramount Network spokesperson said in a statement to Deadline.
The long-running Cops debuted on Fox in 1989 and broadcast for 25 seasons. The show was revived in 2013 when Spike TV ordered new episodes. Spike TV rebranded as Paramount Network in 2018, with the docuseries persisted in the new network.
Cops, whose 33rd season was scheduled to debut yesterday, has been shut off since June 1 when it was pulled without any plans to run any extra episodes. Paramount Network has been moving ceaselessly from all unscripted programming.
A&E on June 5 pulled a weekend ago’s episodes of its hit docuseries Live PD in the midst of proceeding with across the nation protests over Floyd’s demise. The network despite everything is estimating the opportune chance to bring it back, however an arrival this end of the week shows up far-fetched right now.
