ProductionEdit

DevelopmentEdit

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.[2] Production company and animation studio Bento Box Entertainment was expected to produce the series alongside Odenkirk Provissiero Entertainment.[1][3][4][5] On October 30, 2018, it was announced that Netflix had renewed the series for a second season.[6]

CastingEdit

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.[1]

ReleaseEdit

On July 25, 2018, the first trailer for the series was released alongside the announcement that it would premiere on August 31, 2018.[7]

ReceptionEdit

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."[8] 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."[9] 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."[10]
