The first episode of ‘Deputy,’ a procedural drama series developed by Will Beall and shown on Fox, aired in January of 2020. A fifth-generation lawman who is more at ease tracking down criminals is at the center of this tale. Even though he despises politics, his life takes a dramatic shift when he is made sheriff.
The show premiered to poor ratings and mixed reviews from critics when it debuted for the first time.”While those looking for a stylish new procedural with a few unexpected nuances will find much to like,” states the consensus on Rotten Tomatoes. “But Deputy sticks too closely to its genre guns to break any ground.” The Hollywood Reporter added, “All of this really glosses over the question of whether or not Deputy is any good.” It’s absurd, occasionally exciting, incoherent, and a touch less reactive than the norm. This leads us to question whether or not the show is even viable for a second season. So, let’s jump right in!
Deputy Season 2 Release Date
As of April 3, 2020, Fox has announced that, for good reason, they will not renew the show’s contract for a second season. Despite its star-studded ensemble, the average ratings for Deputy were 0.58 in the 18-49 demographic and 3.67 million people. Due of the Corona pandemic, production on the sitcom was halted, and Fox ultimately opted to cancel the show altogether because of poor ratings. After the cancellation of Almost Family, Deputy became the second-lowest-rated drama series on television. However, Deputy is still a fine film that unfortunately came out at the wrong time to appeal to the target audience.
Bill is a great police officer; his peers hold him in high regard. Bill is unafraid of bad guys, loves a good fight, and is always prepared to defend the defenseless. His inability to complete assignments without causing material harm to law enforcement is a major drawback of his employment.
There will be significant costs associated with any shooting or chase involving Bill. Because of his wealth of experience, he is virtually always successful in sending offenders to jail. Management has wanted Hollister out of office for a long time, but Bill was recently appointed to Los Angeles Sheriff.
Bill and his former coworkers conducted a search for a drug trafficker while he was still employed there. He had to keep the business going despite the relocation, but the criminal was not easy to pin down; Bill and his coworkers would have to put in a lot of effort to get any closer.
Bill is able to stay in each new location for longer because to the revelation of previously unknown crimes. He has opponents not just on the opposite side of law enforcement but also within his own police station, and this uneven conflict drains his energy. Bill feels guilty about his partner and wants his kid to give up his ambitions of becoming a police officer.
