It probably comes as no surprise that Live P.D. has been cancelled despite the series having been recently renewed for 160 episodes.
The network had the following to say about the cancellation:
“This is a critical time in our nation’s history and we have made the decision to cease production on Live PD. Going forward, we will determine if there is a clear pathway to tell the stories of both the community and the police officers whose role it is to serve them. And with that, we will be meeting with community and civil rights leaders as well as police departments.”
Host Dan Abrams posted the following on his twitter:
Shocked & beyond disappointed about this. To the loyal #LivePDNation please know I, we, did everything we could to fight for you, and for our continuing effort at transparency in policing. I was convinced the show would go on. . More to come. . .https://t.co/WWh7fDrig2

The show has done extremely well for A&E but there was just no way they could continue it. RIP.
