It will air live Friday and Saturday nights from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m. ( 9 p.m. to midnight ET).
Dan Abrams, who hosted “Live PD,” will return.
According to the report, Abrams will be joined by retired Tulsa Police Sgt. Sean “Sticks” Larkin and Deputy Sheriff Curtis Wilson, Division Commander with the Richland County Sheriff’s Department in Columbia, S.C.
“Law enforcement is front and center in the national discussion, and our hope is that showing the work of police officers in a live format will provide viewers with direct access to the work they do,” Abrams told Variety. “I’m thrilled our team is finally back together and excited that Reelz has committed to making this show front and center on their network.”
The show will once again follow police officers on patrol in real-time in different U.S. cities. According to “The Wall Street Journal,” episodes will feature “new innovations,” such as civilian ride-alongs.
