Disney has announced that every season of the classic 20th Television police drama, “NYPD Blue” is coming to Disney+ in the United Kingdom and Ireland on Wednesday 25th May 2022.
Committed to reflecting reality, this series portrays the mature themes of life in the police department of New York City with an unprecedented combination of real life, real language and real dramas. Whether it’s in the squad room or the bedroom, “NYPD Blue” will offer viewers the kind of realism more often associated with theatrical films than with network television.
The series was originally broadcast on the ABC network, debuted on September 21, 1993‚ and aired its final episode on March 1, 2005. The series ran for 260 episodes across twelve seasons.
It was ABC’s longest-running primetime one-hour drama series until Grey’s Anatomy surpassed it in 2016.
NYPD Blue was met with critical acclaim, praised for its grittiness and realistic portrayal of the cast’s personal and professional lives, though the show garnered controversy for its depiction of nudity and alcoholism.
In 1997, “True Confessions”, written by Art Monterastelli and directed by Charles Haid, was ranked number 36 on “TV Guide’s 100 Greatest Episodes of All Time”.
“NYPD Blue” was previously released on Disney+ in Canada, Australia and New Zealand.
It stars Dennis Franz, David Caruso, James McDaniel, Jimmy Smits and Sherry Stringfield.
