Months after the cancellation of “Cops,” at the Paramount Network, the show has resumed production, Fox Business reports. News of the cancellation came in June after the death of George Floyd, subsequent protests and renewed interest in law enforcement policy. The show’s 33rd season premiere was also pulled from the air. Production is under way in Spokane County, Wa., which has played host to the show in the past. “We have a longstanding relationship with ‘Cops’ and Langley Productions, and we are pleased they have decided to return, highlighting the outstanding work our Deputies provide to all of you,” said the Spokane County Sheriff’s Office.
Film crews have been working with deputies since September and will continue until November. A spokesperson for Langley Productions said the episodes will not air in the U.S., but are being filmed to fulfill overseas commitments. “Live PD” recently faced a similar fate and was canceled at A&E, although host Dan Abrams promised that the show is “coming back.”
