What is the show about?
‘Reno 911’ is a mockumentary parody of all the documentaries based on law enforcement, specifically ‘Cops’, which aired on Fox. The story revolves around police officers trying to fight the conflicts that come in the way of their duties and depicts the many incompetencies of the officers. The show also involves the use of some racial and sexist jokes, along with some politically incorrect statements.
When will season 8 come on air?
You will be thrilled to know that the next season of ‘Reno 911’ will be here with us soon. However, till now an official date has not been announced by the creators of the show.
“We are thrilled about the pickup, but we’re even more thrilled about getting to leave our living rooms for the first time in five months”
Co-creators, Lennon, Ben Garant, and Kenney-Silver said in a statement.
What do the critics have to say about ‘Reno 911’ Season 7?
While the first few seasons were well-acclaimed by the critics, the same was not the case for season 7. While some found the narrative to be too weak, others were of the opinion that it lacked the very essence which captured the attention of the audience. According to Brian Tallerico from “Roger Eger”, the season had a poor storyline,
“The lack of an overall narrative or even the sense that there should be one, fits the Quibi structure, even if some of the humour seems a little stale and dated”.
On the other hand, Martin Carr from “Flickering Myth”, felt that the show couldn’t hold off to its grounds,
“For audiences who missed the boat this is unlikely to convert them, while avid fans will look upon this offering as a homecoming opportunity”.
Well, are you still debating about watching season 7? Don’t worry, humour is something that you can still rely upon. Kiko Vega from “Espinof” called it,
“A perfect balance between vulgarity and smart humour”.
