The world is under siege by a danger that threatens us all. It’s a time when law enforcement is truly relied on to maintain peace and keep us safe. That includes those in uniform at the Reno Sheriff’s Department. But not to protect us. They’re literally the last cops we’d rely on during any kind of event. Even a church bake sale. But they’re exactly the entertainment we need to get through social distancing. It’s why their upcoming return couldn’t have come at a better time. And based on the latest trailer, before their seventh season premieres on Quibi, the cops of RENO 911 are just as incompetent—and hilarious—as they’ve ever been.
They’re also just as dangerous, because no police department should be responsible for so many explosions.
The final trailer ahead of RENO 911‘s May 4 launch on Quibi is our best look yet at what to expect when the cult classic series returns. It’s everything we love and remember about the show, from absurd emergency calls, exhausting colleague interactions, and ridiculous failures by those in uniform. There will also be lots of crashes, explosions, and property damage. So basically the worst police work you could imagine, which is all we want from the fictional Reno Sheriff’s Department.
Written, created, and starring The State‘s Robert Ben Garant, Kerri Kenney-Silver, and Thomas Lennon, the show will also see the return of original cast members Niecy Nash, Wendi McLendon-Covey, Cedric Yarbrough, and Carlos Alazraqui. Former RENO 911 stars Ian Roberts, Joe LoTruglio, and Mary Birdsong will also be back. The new season will also feature cameos from Dave Holmes, Patton Oswalt, Tim Allen, Ron Perlman, Michael Ian Black, and Weird Al Yankovic.
The first three of 12 shortened/Quibi “bite-sized” episodes will premiere on May 4. New episodes will follow on weekdays on the Quibi app.
And that makes us feel better during a time we’re not feeling great. Because when things are going bad we like to know we can depend on local law enforcement. But when we need entertainment we depend on the incompetent people in blue who work at RENO 911.
