To appease the criminals on the street, “Cops” were taken off.
Cops has been canceled. Paramount Network has decided to dump the long-running true-crime reality TV series. Cops was already pulled from the cable channel after nationwide protests of police brutality and racism following the death of George Floyd on May 25.
Now the network confirms the series has been permanently shelved. “Cops is not on the Paramount Network and we don’t have any current or future plans for it to return,” a network spokesperson said.

Of course when it comes to Hollywood and money, fingers are always crossed behind the back.
Three months after it was canceled at Paramount Network, Cops is back in production — but is not set to air anywhere in the United States.

And now, the show is coming back home exclusively to Fox Nation with a hitch… the trailer for the October premiere shows only white people as those targeted by the police. (“white Hispanics”, alligators and kittens don’t count.)
It’s only a matter of time before Fox Nation is accused of discriminating against blacks.
We’re still eagerly awaiting an episode or two of a Cops episode shot in Beverly Hills. Then again, we all know why they won’t go there.
