Richland County Sheriff’s Department Leon Lott said Live PD is coming back. Sheriff Lott was speaking at the Greater Cayce – West Columbia Chamber Breakfast on Tuesday, April 26th. Lott continued on to say he expects Live PD to begin filming in the summer (June/July) and be back on another network before the end of 2021. This means that Live PD will likely debut for the Fall season on a new network such as Fox, FX, or Paramount.
Earlier in the year, Sheriff Lott, who has been in law enforcement for 46 years, was honored as the 2021 National Sheriff of the Year by the National Sheriffs Association.
Several Richland County news organizations have covered this story today. The West Metro Online News reported on Sheriff Lott’s announcement. WLTX News19 contacted the Richland County Sheriff’s Department for more information, and one of the public information officers confirmed that Richland County is in negotiations with Live PD to resume filming.
Sheriff Lott is not the only one talking about the show coming back. Live PD Host Dan Abrams responded to a comment on Twitter about bringing back Live PD by saying “Working on it. . .”. In the same thread he also responded, “I hope to have news soon”
If this news is as accurate as we hope, we could see new episodes of Live PD 4 months from now. We can’t say for sure, but this is some of most promising news we’ve seen in months.
Love the news!
This is the best news I have gotten in a long time. Fantastic.
can’t wait for live pd to come back!!!
cancelling Live PD has bonded me even closer to our protectors! Let’s get going!
Can’t wait on the return of Live PD!!!👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼
Great news! My favorite tv program. It has been gone for far too long. It should never have left!!
Really great to hear! I think by now we all recognize Live PD got a bad deal and why. Super happy to hear it will be with another network.
Thanks that’s great. You make my day. It was my favorite show
So excited & happy that Live PD is coming back. Should have never stopped!
Sure hope so!!!!
Can’t wait for the return! We need it now more then ever! God bless the Men and Women in blue!
Can’t wait to see the real heroes of our local communities in action again. I used to have an EMT-Basic certification and while participating in clincals on the ambulance, I saw real courage in adverse conditions from our first responders. Those experiences changed my whole attitude towards law enforcement. All these so-called protesters should do a ride along and see what happens out there and who protects us all!
Sheriff Lott, I believe you and pray this is true. Abrams has been promising us for months now with no result. I don’t trust Abrams as far as I can throw him but I do trust you. Please keep us LivePD true fans posted.
That would be great but if theyre taping in June/July for shows later in the year, it doesnt sound like it will actually be live.
I think the same. I hope they make it live or it won’t be LIVE PD
Very happy for the return, can’t wait just hope it will be on a free channel.
Absolutely Exciting for LIVEPD to come back to us!!!!
This is wonderful news. We absolutely love this show! It’s inspiring to watch our dedicated law enforcement officials, who work so hard protecting our streets, neighborhoods and cities. Thanks to all those who worked so hard to bring this show back.
This would make my year. LIVE P.D. I am counting down the days. Thank You.
That was my most favorite show on Friday and Saturday. I would really love to see it back on the air. It gives the public a real sense of what police go through on a daily basis. 🇺🇸
Very excited!!! My husband and I love the show.
I can not wait!!!! LIVE PD is the best & only show worth watching on TV!!! Next is Nightwatch. My 2 favorites
What amazing news! I can’t wait. This is the BEST news!!!!
So HAPPY if it’s true.
Love it!!! I miss this show so much. The police men and women are all wonderful officers!!!
Get Live PD back on…stop letting the liberal 10% dictate our freedom of entertainment.
Yay!!! My favorite show!!!
I was raised in the “Family” back when the Police were Respected & Honored! My Dad served 35 years and retired in 1981. I love the show as I can relate to some of what my Dad spoke of. I have friends who are active and retired Officers. I had recorded some before it was taken off tv. I’ve never watched anything on A&E since. Can’t wait till you’re back and will be watching for date & channel!
Looking forward to it. Hope it is back on soon. My week ends haven’t been the same.
That would be the best news ever for Live PD to return. That was the highlight of our Friday and Saturday nights watching this show. The sooner the better!!
So… Anybody know what channel its coming back on? Couldn’t seem to find the answer.
This is an amazing announcement. Just please dont let it be on discovery plus. I miss those guys and gals so much.
Anyone know what channel its coming back on? I couldn’t seem yo find the answer.
Yabba Dabba Doo! Can’t wait!
Love Love Live PD
Can’t wait- anxious to see the boys in blue again. This show was at least 75% of my gv time. Don’t watch I soap operas tv stays off during day. Most of evening.
Hurry back this 81 hut old woman loves the show.
Awesome can’t wait!
Is it coming back as an edited show? or I’m I reading it the wrong way.
I’m I reading it as it’s gonna be edited like cops or I’m I wrong
Finally, something remotely approaching certainty, with a timeline no less. Even better that it’s going to another network, let A&E sell advertising off Hoarders and Storage Wars.
Oh, please let this happen!!
It made no sense when they took it off the air. We need to see what these officers deal with on the daily so we can appreciate what they do even more. Lets do this!!
Awesome!!! Been looking forward to when this was going to air again. Live PD is the show you cannot get enough of unless you are in it or retired from it. And even then it is questionable.
I love them. Can’t wait to see them back!
Totally Awesome!!!!Live PD is MISSED!!!
Not only do we need the show back, but the officers need the support the show brings.
HOW WONDERFUL!!!! 🙂 We always loved Live PD. We always looked forward to watching it and have missed it more than words can say.
I LOVE LIVE PD!!! I MISS IT SOOO BAD, LOOKED FORWARD EVERY WEEK TO WATCH IT, IT WAS SO ENTERTAINING AND GREAT FOR SOCIETY TO SEE OUR BELOVED OFFICERS IN A FULL ACTION, I CAN SAY HOW MUCH I LOVE LIVE PD, ME AND MY WHOLE FAMILY AND FRIENDS WOULD WATCH! OLEASE BRING BACK THIS SUMMER OF 2021, PLEASE CANT WAIT ANY MORE, IT WILL BE THE HIGHEST RATING SHOW ON CABLE TV EVER TO EXIST, I LOVE LIVE PD, STAY SAFE STAY HEALTHY STAY STRONG GOD BLESS AND ALWAYS BE WELL, !!! 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸GOD FAMILY COUNTRY 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸 WE LOVE LIVE… Read more »
