FoxNation Renews ‘COPS’ after ‘Defund the Police’ Inspired Its Cancellation


After being dropped last year as Hollywood welcomed the Defund the Police movement, streaming network Fox Nation is bringing back the hit TV reality series “Cops”. Variety announced that Fox Nation has renewed the show for a 33rd season, which would premiere on October 1. In a statement, Jason Klarman, president of Fox Nation, stated, “Cops is one of the most iconic brands on television with an enormously passionate fan following.”


After going all in for the Black Lives Matter movement and its anti-police policies, ViacomCBS and its Paramount Network announced the discontinuation of the reality show that follows a day in the life of police officers in cities around the country in June of 2020. 



“As part of the Cops launch,” a Fox Nation press release notes, “FOX Nation will offer all first responders, including police officers, firefighters, emergency medical technicians and paramedics (EMS personnel), a one-year free subscription to the service beginning on Monday, September 13th. FOX Nation will also donate $5 to Answer the Call on behalf of each new subscriber with a maximum donation of $50,000 during the week of September 13-20.”


Immediately after the announcement of the popular show’s renewal, Twitter SJWs began screeching. Yellow Flash had this to say in response to all the “reee-ing”.

Cops‘ transition to the new network seems like a homecoming. The series began way back in 1989 on the fledgling Fox Network and quickly became a huge hit with television viewers. As Fox Nation expands beyond news-based programming, the return of Cops will be joined by numerous additional first responder-based series. New series will also premiere on Fox Nation, including 911: On Scene, When Seconds Count, Protect and Serve, and Answer the Call, according to the network.
