The series has one season consisting of 13 episodes, each of approximately 44 minutes. The series premiered on 2nd January and wrapped up on 26th March 2020. The series was later cancelled on April 3rd, 2020 after the release of only one season. The series features the story of Bill Hollister, who works as an acting deputy in L.A. County, after the death of his predecessor and is in charge of 10,000 Deputies.
Deputy Season 2 Release Date
As mentioned earlier in the article, Fox has refused to sign another contract for season 2 of the series as announced on 3rd April 2020, and for a reasonable cause. Deputy proved to be an average show with a 0.58 rating in the 18-49 demographic with a mere 3.67 million viewers, although they were provided with a star cast. The series had stopped its pilots due to the corona pandemic and Fox decided to cancel the production as a whole since it wouldn’t bring the desired results based on the low ratings. Deputy ranked second lowest rated drama series, ahead of Almost Family, whose contract was not renewed, along with the Deputy franchise. Still, Deputy is definitely worth a watch and was just unlucky to be released at a bad time, which didn’t suit the viewer’s taste.
