One of the longest running shows on TV, “Cops” has come to its end.
After 25 seasons on the air, “Cops” was originally pulled from Paramount Networks schedule after the nationwide protests after the killing of George Floyd due to police brutality. But now, Paramount has announced that the show will not be returning at all.
“‘Cops’ is not on the Paramount Network and we don’t have any current or future plans for it to return,” a Paramount Network spokesperson said in a statement.
The show has reportedly been under fire in recent years for its depicts law enforcement and questionable behind the scenes practices. On a recent podcast, “Running from Cops”, hosted by Dan Taberski, he and his team spoke on people being coerced into signing waivers and how production allows police to edit and remove anything that might paint them in a negative light.
