“Cops” was one of the first reality shows that gave viewers a glimpse into law enforcement. The broadcast originally ran on the FOX Network. Sadly, it has been accused of glorifying the police. Additionally, due to nationwide protests calling for reform, it has been cancelled. The Paramount Network revealed Tuesday that it had removed the reality show from its schedule.
Late last month, the network had temporarily cut the dramatic show. “‘Cops’ is not on the Paramount Network and we don’t have any current or future plans for it to return,” a spokeswoman for the network said.
Paramount Network’s forerunner, Spike TV, picked up Cops in 2013 after it ended a 25-season run on FOX
Old episodes of Cops currently air on WGN America. The network’s commitment to the show expires at the end of June and the cable network doesn’t plan to renew it, sources told The Hollywood Reporter.
