Possible Return of Live PD

46
145

Its been over two months since Live PD was been canceled in early June. Many of the fans have not given up on the show coming back. Fans continue to sign our Petition to Bring Live PD back and have been very vocal on social media. In July, A&E reported that without Live PD their viewership fell off 50%. That’s a huge impact, so the network is clearly motivated to get some of those Live PD fans back. Yesterday we got a very strong indication that Live PD could be returning.

Dan Abrams posted on Twitter a long message regarding what has been happening. In his post, Dan indicated that there are active discussions underway to bring the show back. He said, there may be some changes in protocol. This is likely a reference to things like deleting footage. Dan asked the fans to stay tuned and there would be additional news soon.

Given the current state of events, and the logisitics to get a show like Live PD into production, the soonest we should expect to see Live PD back is January, 2021. But most fans would be willing to wait 6 months if that meant seeing our favorite officers on Friday and Saturday nights again.

I say make LivePD a subscription streaming service… I’d gladly pay for a subscription.

Me too. Only problem I see is that some of the shows guests and biggest fan club (often the same people) couldn’t afford that with their own money.

If A&E think they are going to win me be back, is by showing reruns of Live Rescue, they are badly mistaken. The only way I, and MILLIONS of others, will come back to watching A&E, is with NEW episodes of Live PD.

This is WONDERFUL news! I only wish it could be sooner than January!! I wrote to A&E twice about their stupidity and cowardice in cancelling the show and told them I would no longer be a customer of theirs either. Dan Abrams, you are THE MAN!!!

Please bring back Live PD. I really do believe that there is a lot of positive law enforcement contact with the public. A&E really messed up pulling Live PD off the air.

It’s not truly live if things are deleted ,,, if that is the meaning of “(with some behind the scenes protocol changes)”.

Please,Please,Please, bring back LIVE PD! There was nothing on the show you have to delete! The American people want to see our police in action. It gives us a better understanding of what they go through everyday!

Dan I continue to watch Court Cam to support you & let you know that I am interested in your success. I hope A&E takes it that way as opposed to thinking I still want to watch their shows. (I’ve been addicted to first 48 for years & can’t sseem to give that up either.) I pray for your success in advocating a return of LivePD. As you know LivePD Nation will continue to support it’s return. They sure didn’t figure on us when they canceled the show did they?? Hanging in there waiting for my Fri & Sat nights… Read more »

No reason this show should have been cancelled to begin with, and I made that feedback on A&E’s website to them. The show documents police in their daily work, and shows well what they have to deal with on the job. That cut against the narrative some want to push right now that all police are evil, blood thirsty monsters. There are some bad police, but most police, as Live PD shows, are honorable people doing a very difficult and vital job. Let us know how we can help! What can we do to get the show restored from our… Read more »

Really great news Dan, thank you! As someone who grew up with family members in law enforcement (my uncle Gib Carrel was Chief of the Colorado State Patrol over 25 yrs for one) it was easy to recognize the value LivePD brought to all its fans and society at large. Nor is it a surprise that as fans, we were all dedicated to its success. Please know we support your efforts for LivePD’s return and wish the best for everyone affiliated with the program, the officers and their families … how much their dedication to serve their fellow citizens means… Read more »

Live PD promotes law enforcement efforts to maintain security for our citizens and also provides insight into the constant possibility of each man in blue being injured for keeping our cities and suburbs safe. Every officer is a true hero to me. Without their selfless endeavors, we would live in a world of anarchy (as we’re seeing every day nationally). They are our only local defense that provides us with a secure, peaceful existence. GOD BLESS THE MEN IN BLUE!!

Please Please Please come back on air ASAP! This show got me through the weeks of having the virus and is a blessing especially for this time, people now more than ever need to be on a call or a stop to realize the truth of what our Police Officers go through daily. It opened up my eyes and I know it can do the same for others, even those being stopped or arrested know when they’re on Live PD. Thank you for not giving up on bringing it back and God always bless and protect our Law Enforcement.

Live PD has always shown the truths about policing. It seems to me they have always required the departments to provide their most respected and professional officers to be filmed. I watched the show religiously. I DVR’d it to make sure I didn’t miss an episode. What I loved most is the positive aspects Live PD showed. There is negative in policing, but this is not something we saw. People make their own decisions on what they are seeing. I have been a reserve deputy and the wife of a deputy. I have seen both sides. An LEO can be… Read more »

Have commented before, WANT LIVE PD BACK, PERIOD. I was hoping there would be some updated news on the site. Have told A&E repeatedly what I think of their cowardly decision to pull the show based on the ignorance and bullying tactics of “mob mentality”. Glad they were repaid by a 50% reduction in viewership. SERVES THEM RIGHT. I will not watch anything on A&E until Live PD is back.

We can fight, too!

I was shocked when this got cancelled. Why? Snowflakes must be running A&E. Most of what I’ve seen the cops were very lenient. cant understand these liberals. signed the petition.

Don’t make judgments. I worked in law enforcement, am very pro police and love Live PD. I also consider myself just slightly left of center. So there.

Live PD is so important on so many levels. The show allows people who live outside of the Blue Culture bubble to witness what those brave men and women have to go through on a deeply personal level. It is a demonstration of all the GOOD that Police do. I think the knee-jerk reaction of banning the blue is a preposterous notion which sickens me knowing it received so much support. It sickens me even more when Companies like A&E pander to these groups by canceling any and all police related TV shows. I hope Live PD does return. I… Read more »

I am intentionally NOT watching anything on A&E till Live PD returns! This is pure BS that it was taken off. A&E are cowards. I do not care what Mr. Abrams politics are in this show he is right on!

West Baton Rouge that had not been on board too long before Live PD had gotten canceled was SUCH a big hit on the show. We LOVED them. Hopefully WHEN Live PD returns, West Baton Rouge will continue to be a part of their show.

I have not watched A&E since you canceled Live PD …. you like most of the country blamed all officers for the actions of few … we know that our men and women in blue do a fantastic job putting their lives on the line to protect and serve
this was wrong !! You show good cops in action using professional tactics they were taught that’s the right way to combat the wrong. 💙

I think it’s awesome that A&E ratings dropped 50% after taking Live PD off the air!! People/corporations need to stop catering to people. If something offends you then don’t watch it. The majority it seems wants it back on and so majority should rule. All this stuff is getting on my nerves. We will only go back to watching A&E if LivePd returns!!

Another corporation being run by Snowflakes telling the public what to see, watch.They are afraid of showing reality at it’s finest along with the LEO’s doing thier job(s). Stop giving to these people. Only criminals wouldn’t want a show about people getting busted being shown live. Come on A&E, grow a pair and bring Live PD back!!!!!

Live PD should be its own network. $5 or $10 a month. And how many million viewers? That should be enough money to sustain the network 🙂

I would love to have my show back. They keep saying its coming back to A&E. But when? I think that it was wrong of them to take the show off in the first place. And then we have not heard one word of if the show is even coming back or not. At least I can still see Dan on Court TV but still they keep even moving when the new episodes of that is coming out. First it was going to be Oct now its Nov. Geeesh. Its not hard to bring back a beloved show. I still… Read more »
