“Cops” has been officially canceled at Paramount Network.
The network initially decided to put the show on pause and pull it from the schedule in the wake of the George Floyd protests across the nation and around the world.
A Paramount Network spokesperson has confirmed the show will not be returning:
‘Cops’ is not on the Paramount Network and we don’t have any current or future plans for it to return.
“Cops” originally launched on Fox in 1989 and has come under fire in recent years for its depicts law enforcement and questionable behind the scenes practices.
The series was the subject of a recent podcast hosted by Dan Taberski, “Running from Cops,” which chronicled hundreds of episodes of the show. Taberski and his team detailed instances where people were coerced into signing waivers and how production allows police to edit and remove anything that might paint them in a negative light.
