Tony Danza’s The Good Cop canceled by Netflix
Following The Good Cop‘s debut last September, Deadline reports that Netflix has officially canceled the comedy drama series after its first season run. The series starred Tony Danza (Don Jon) and Josh Groban (Crazy, Stupid, Love) as a father and son duo, who were forced to team up in order to solve cases.
“The Good Cop will not return for a second season,” Netflix said in a statement to the outlet. “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.”
In The Good Cop, Tony Danza plays Tony Sr. (Big Tony), a lovable yet not exactly honorable, former NYPD officer who never followed the rules. He lives with his son, Tony Jr. (TJ), Josh Groban, a brilliant, straight-laced NYPD detective who makes a point of always following the rules while solving Brooklyn’s toughest cases. This “odd couple” become unofficial partners as Tony Sr. offers his overly-cautious son blunt, street-wise advice.
Also part of the cast are Monica Barbaro (Chicago Justice), Isiah Whitlock, Jr (Pete’s Dragon), and Bill Kottkamp (Fist Fight).
Andy Breckman, the creator of Monk, serves as showrunner and executive producer of The Good Cop, with Randy Zisk (Bones, Monk), and Howard Klein (The Office, The Mindy Project) serving as executive producers. Danza also serves as a producer.
