Long Running Series Cops Has Been Cancelled In The Wake Of George Floyd's Death
Long-running TV series Cops has been cancelled by the Paramount Network in the wake of George Floyd's death.
The network pulled the show at the start of the month as anger brewed in America over the 46-year-old's death in police custody in Minneapolis.
However, Paramount Network says it has no plans to bring the series back.
A spokesperson has told Deadline: "Cops is not on the Paramount Network and we don't have any current or future plans for it to return."

The show first premiered in 1989 and it focuses on real-life law enforcement officers performing their daily duty to 'serve and protect the public'. It was about to enter its 33rd season this week, however the new episodes have been put on ice.
In the more than three decades on the air, it has racked up more than 1,100 episodes during its time on the air.
It ran for 25 seasons on the Fox network before being picked up by Spike TV, which was later rebranded to Paramount Network.
