Another one bites the dust, and this one's a real bummer.
Netflix is clearly on a roll with its cancellation streak. After swiftly axing Luke Cage, Iron Fist, and American Vandal, the steaming giant set its eyes on yet another target. Unfortunately, it aimed straight at The Good Cop — the buddy-cop comedy starring Tony Danza and Josh Groban. The news comes as a surprise since the series just premiered on September 21.
"The Good Cop will not return for a second season," said the streamer in an official statement. "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."
Created by Andy Breckman, the genius behind Monk, the short-lived comedy certainly added variety to Netflix's ever-growing archive of original content. The Good Cop follows Big Tony, a former NYPD officer/ex-con who lives on the edge and breaks all the rules. Big Tony is currently living with his son, T.J., while on parole. T.J. is the exact opposite of his father when it comes to performing his job as a NYPD detective. He's got a tightly-wound, Type-A personality and a knack for always doing the right thing. Together, Big Tony and T.J. become unofficial partners to solve Brooklyn's biggest criminal cases.
The 10-episode series ended on a major cliffhanger, so this cancellation news is more than terrible for fans of the show. Apart from being light-hearted and easy to binge, The Good Cop paired up Danza and Groban who are an unlikely yet utterly spectacular duo. Who knew! Tony Danza is very Tony Danza in the series, which means there is a lot of wisecracking and tongue-in-cheek humor. Josh Groban is a major delight with great comedic timing and is easily the standout performer on The Good Cop.
Seriously, why did Netflix have to cancel this gem of a show? It's definitely a travesty in my eyes.
