Copyright Netflix

The Good Cop is the first cop comedy-drama in the Netflix Original library and the series has already been well-received by critics and fans alike. If you’re looking for a season 2, here’s everything you need to know including whether it’s been renewed and when it will potentially release on Netflix. 

In case you missed it, the series comes from the creator of Monk on USANetwork and shares many similarities with the show before it. It stars Tony Danza and Josh Groban who play a father and son duo with one being an active cop and the other a disgraced cop.

10 episodes of the show released on Netflix worldwide on September 21st, 2018.

The Good Cop Season 2 Renewal Status

Official renewal status: Not yet renewed (09/25/2018)

It should be no surprise that The Good Cop hasn’t been renewed just yet. This is the case with most to all shows on Netflix where we don’t know the future of the show until a few months have passed after its initial release. The reason for this is so Netflix can gather enough data regarding the series to see whether or not to give it a second season order.

As we don’t have access to the show’s data from Netflix, we’ll have to rely on third-party data. On IMDb, the review scores are sitting at 6.9/100 but more importantly, the show broke through the top 100 most popular shows in the first week. Metacritic (which looks at critics reviews) currently pegs the show at a 53.

We’re 50/50 on whether the show will get renewed but as soon as it does, we’ll let you know here at What’s on Netflix.

What fans are saying?

When will season 2 of The Good Cop be on Netflix?

As always, this date prediction relies on the renewal announcement of season 2 happening roughly 2-3 months after the series releases.

Given we’re dealing with a standard drama and a creator who’s used to creating for a traditional network, it’s likely that The Good Cop will now stick to an annual release format. In which case, you can probably expect season 2 of The Good Cop to arrive on Netflix between August and October 2019 at the earliest.
