Two years after it was canceled by the Paramount Network and one year after Fox News Media picked it up for its Fox Nation streaming service, “Cops” returns on September 30th.
Before its cancellation, Cops was the longest-running reality show in America. The series was first pulled from the Paramount Network schedule in the summer of 2020 in response to nationwide anti-police protests following the killing of George Floyd, and was canceled by the network days later. It was one of several police-related television projects to be canceled or rewritten at the time, such as “Live PD,” which was canceled by A+E Networks after four seasons.
The new season of “Cops” kicks off with three episodes on September 30th, followed by weekly drops on Friday. To support the launch, Fox Nation is offering free one-year subscriptions to all first responders, including police officers, firefighters, paramedics and paramedics (EMS personnel).
“It’s been almost a year since we gave ‘Cops’ the green light and the response has been nothing short of overwhelming,” said Fox Nation President Jason Klarman. “Our subscribers continue to flock to the series, and we’re excited to bring our engaged audience more of the exclusive content they have come to depend on from Fox Nation.”
Though Fox Nation was initially billed as an extension of the company’s conservative news channel, “Cops” is one of several non-news shows Klarman introduced to the streamer. Fox Nation also offers original Christmas movies, a true crime series hosted by Nancy Grace and America’s Most Wanted.
