Paradise PD is an adult animated comedy show that focuses on a rather useless police department trying to stem the flow of crime in their small town while dealing with their own dramas and inadequacies. Despite its popularity, there will not be a fifth season.

Will there be a Season 5 of Paradise PD?

There is bad news for fans of the show, as Season 5 of Paradise PD has not been commissioned. Netflix announced in June 2022 that the show would not be renewed for Season 5. If it is any consolation, the creators of Paradise PD launched a new animated sci-fi show called Farzar that you might like to check out.

There have been four parts to Paradise PD. Part one has ten episodes. Part two has eight episodes. Part three has twelve episodes, and part four has ten.

Why was Paradise PD Canceled?

There can be several reasons behind the show’s cancellation, and it has to be said that usually, the main reason comes down to money. Animation is an expensive and time-consuming project, and after four seasons of a show, it has to be something special to incur future episodes. Ratings or viewing hours also play a part, and if the platform decides that the show is dropping in its targets, that is usually another nail in the coffin.

Animated shows often develop a niche audience that, although devoted to the show, may not be enough to warrant another set of episodes. Reviews have been mixed since the show launched, and some criticized the sledgehammer humor and lack of nuance of the characters.

There were also some positive reviews too though, but on Rotten Tomatoes, it has an audience appreciation score of 48%, and on IMDB, it has a rating of 6.8 out of 10.

It also seems that the show creators have other projects that they want to develop, such as the sci-fi show Farzar they released. Rather than split their focus, the creators may have decided to put all their efforts into new projects rather than try and split themselves between the two. It should also be noted that sometimes things can get to a natural ending, and there can often be a lot to be said for a show that knows when to stop.

Is Brickleberry and Paradise PD in the same universe?

There are a lot of crossovers between the two shows. The most notable is that both shows were created by the same creators, Waco O’Guin and Roger Black, and the similarities are very evident. It seems that the locations and characters are all very similar in the two shows leading to the assumption that the two shows existed in the same universe, and this was set in stone in 2020 when a crossover between the two casts of characters was aired.

The episode was called “Paradise PD meets Brickleberry and has the two shows converging in a story involving a missing bear.
