Tony Danza’s TV return turned out be rather short-lived. Netflix has cancelled their comedy-drama series The Good Cop, starring the former Taxi star, after a single season. The show’s first (and now only) ten episode season launched globally on Netflix back in September. Deadline was first to report the news.
“The Good Cop will not return for a second season”, the streaming service said in a 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.”
The Good Cop follows Tony Sr., a lovable yet not exactly honourable, former NYPD officer who never followed the rules. He lives with his son, Tony Jr., 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.
The comedy-drama series is inspired by an Israeli format and stars Tony Danza, Josh Groban, Monica Barbaro, Isiah Whitlock, Jr and Bill Kottkamp. Monk creator Andy Breckman is the penning the scripts. He also serves as showrunner and executive produces alongside Randy Zisk, Howard Klein and YES (the Israeli production company behind the original format). Danza serves as a producer.
