The Good Cop Season 2: Netflix Renewal Status and Release Date

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: Cancelled (11/24/2018)

The show has officially been cancelled after a single season. Despite positive fan feedback the show likely didn’t pull in the audience figures Netflix needed to justify a second season.

In a statement released by Josh Groban, he said: “The Good Cop will not return for a second season. We’re grateful to creator Andy Breckman and his fellow producers, writers, the incredible crew and especially stars Tony Danza and Josh Groban for bringing this classic odd couple father-son story to Netflix.”

The show now joins an evergrowing list of shows that failed to get past their first season order.

Original story

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.
