The long-running reality TV show "Cops" has officially been canceled by the Paramount Network.

The first episode of the show's 33rd season was scheduled to premiere on Monday, but the show has been put "on hold" since before June. The decision to put the program on hold was made when protests first began over the killing of George Floyd.

On Tuesday, the Paramount Network announced their plans to cancel the show altogether, KFI reports.

"Cops" debuted on the then-new Fox network in 1989. It remained on Fox until 2013 when it moved to Spike TV, which became the Paramount Network.

Another police reality show, "Live PD," has been removed from the schedule on the A&E Network, despite being the number one cable show on Friday and Saturday nights.
