Paradise PD is an American adult animated sitcom created by Waco O'Guin and Roger Black that premiered on August 31, 2018, on Netflix. The series stars Dana Snyder, Cedric Yarbrough, David Herman, Tom Kenny, Sarah Chalke, and Kyle Kinane. The second season was released on March 6, 2020, and the third season was released on March 12, 2021. Netflix renewed the series for the fourth and final season, titled Paradise PD: Party Dudes, which premiered on December 16, 2022.[1]


Paradise PD follows Kevin Crawford joining the small-town police department in the crime-ridden town of Paradise with his mother Karen as the mayor, his estranged father Chief Randall Crawford initially against his son joining the force as he blamed him for his numerous shortcomings since Kevin accidentally shot his testicles. The other police officers themselves are equally incompetent and morally corrupt, consisting of the violent Gina Jabowski, the PTSD-afflicted Gerald "Fitz" Fitzgerald, morbidly obese man-child Dusty Marlow, perverted senior citizen Stantley Hopson, and drug-addict drug dog Bullet. The town is also home to many weird regulars that include the hillbillies Robby and Delbert, Hobo Cop, Dr. Funtlicher, Preacher Paul, Frank Flipperfist and his son Jerry.

The overarching storyline of the first two seasons focuses on Kevin trying to earn his father's love by cracking down on a crime boss known only as "The Kingpin", eventually revealed to be an alternate personality of Fitz's whose master scheme is turning Paradise into a giant deep-dish pizza. The third season covers a series of events that include Kevin entering into a relationship with Gina despite her fat man fetish and violent streak, Randall and Karen rekindling their relationship with the latter pregnant, and Fitz and Bullet in a relationship with a dolphin before raising the latter's biological dog/dolphin hybrid son together. But Gina runs off on her wedding day with the police force fired after another disaster strikes Paradise. The fourth and final season depicts the former officers ending up in a series of events from Kevin's newborn baby brother trying to have him killed to an eccentric CEO named Charles Lovely moving to Paradise with sinister plans in mind.[2]

On April 4, 2018, Netflix announced that they had given the production a straight-to-series order for a first season consisting of ten episodes. The series was created by Waco O'Guin and Roger Black.[3] Production company and animation studio Bento Box Entertainment was expected to produce the series alongside Odenkirk Provissiero Entertainment.[2][4][5][6] On October 30, 2018, it was announced that Netflix had renewed the series for a second season.[7][8] The third season was announced in April 2020 and was released on March 12, 2021.[9][10] The second season features a crossover episode with Brickleberry while making references throughout the latter half of the first season such as Fitz, the only black police officer on Paradise PD, being called Denzel, the only black park ranger on Brickleberry by Kevin, Steve's doppelgänger. Netflix renewed the show for a fourth and final season which premiered on December 16, 2022.[1]


Alongside the initial series announcement, it was reported that Dana Snyder, Cedric Yarbrough, David Herman, Tom Kenny, Sarah Chalke, and Kyle Kinane had been cast in series regular roles.[2]


On July 25, 2018, the first trailer for the series was released alongside the announcement that it would premiere on August 31, 2018.[11]


On Rotten Tomatoes, the first season holds an approval rating of 40% with an average rating of 5.03/10, based on 5 reviews.[12] In a negative review, The Daily Dot's Audra Schroeder gave the series a rating of two-and-a-half stars out of five and criticized the series, describing it as "blunt-force humor without much emotional attachment."[13] In a similarly unfavorable critique, Decider's Joel Keller recommended that viewers skip the series, saying, "If it were just a little bit funnier, we'd recommend it. But it's just not worth sitting through the many unfunny, dirty gags to get to the good stuff."[14] In a more favorable assessment, Konbini's Florian Ques praised the series saying, "The most thrilling aspect of Paradise PD is its natural ability to slip in some real burns aimed at pop culture figures...The humor used to criticize them is very well-executed."[15]
