Cops is returning to TV. Per People, the unscripted series, which follows police officers in cities across the United States, has been picked up by Fox Nation. The 33rd season will make its debut on October 1 with four new episodes, followed by new episodes on Fridays.
First premiering on Fox in 1989, the series made its way to Spike after 25 seasons, later rebranded as the Paramount Network in 2018.
Fox Nation is offering a free one-year subscription to police officers, firefighters, emergency medical technicians and paramedics. “Cops is one of the most iconic brands on television with an incredibly passionate fan base,” said Fox Nation President Jason Klarman in a statement. “We wanted to show our appreciation to all first responders by combining the launch with a free one-year subscription to give back in a small way to those who place their lives on the line every day to keep us safe.
In October of last year, the Spokane County Sheriff’s Office confirmed that Cops had resumed production, with film crews following around the sheriffs and deputies since September.
“We have a longstanding relationship with Cops and Langley productions,” the Spokane County Sheriff’s Department said in a press release. “And we are pleased they have decided to return, highlighting the outstanding work our Deputies provide to all of you.”
