Set in Nevada, it follows the day-to-day activities of inept police officers who have to deal with the most ridiculous situations from petty criminals.
Reno 911! Defunded will follow the department having to deal with a major change in their realities: their budget for operating is reduced all the way down to zero, and they’ll have to take lessons on how to be better police officers.
Made in a post-George Floyd world and the chaos caused by BLM, the Reno 911 team will have to learn to deal with citizens that no longer follow normal rules and get rid of all their militarized gear.
Here’s the trailer:
Roku’s synopsis reads:
“It’s 2022. Crime is on the rise, but one city is never short on heroes. Reno’s finest are back and this time they’re facing their biggest challenge yet –they’ve been defunded! No budget. No back-up. No problem for your favorite top cops as they return along with a squad room full of guest stars for a season low on resources and high on chaos.”
All the original cast members Thomas Lennon, Robert Ben Garant, Kerri Kenney-Silver, Niecy Nash, and Cedric Yarbrough are set to return. Additionally, the new season of Reno 911! Defunded will feature a slate of guest stars that include George Lopez, Jamie Lee Curtis and “Weird Al” Yankovic.
Created by Thomas Lennon, Robert Ben Garant, and Kerri Kenney-Silver, Reno 911! Defunded is directed by Garant, David Lincoln and Christian Hoffman.
