Though Paramount Community hasn’t given a conclusive rationalization, the rationale why is fairly self-explanatory. Given the truth that the present capitalizes on real-life individuals who get chased down by real-life cops and turns genuinely unhappy and unlucky conditions into leisure, it’s a no brainer that Cops has outstayed its welcome. In truth, to maintain Cops operating whereas a lot of the nation remains to be protesting over the homicide of George Floyd and the federal government’s long-time toleration of police brutality in opposition to the black neighborhood, could be fairly tone-deaf.
Based on Deadline, Cops isn’t the one cop present that’s getting pulled off the air. A&E discontinued airing Reside PD, as some viewers might have seen the newest episode by no means aired June 5. Per Deadline, A&E is “nonetheless evaluating the best time to carry it again although a return this weekend seems unlikely in the intervening time.” It might not be shocking if A&E follows Paramount Community’s footsteps and dissolves the present fully.
