Tacoma FD, an American sitcom set in a firehouse in Tacoma, Washington, made its debut on March 28, 2019. After four successful seasons, Tacoma FD was set to return with a fifth installment. Here’s what you need to know about the announcement, which includes details on the release date and where to catch up on the series.

Have they renewed Tacoma FD Season 5?

Unfortunately, Tacoma FD Season 5 has been cancelled, as summarised by the creators. The surprising news came shortly after the airing of the fourth-season finale, which aired on October 5, 2023. While the unusual decision and engaging plot of “Tacoma FD” immediately captured the audience’s imagination, the other three seasons did not replicate the same impact as its debut part.

Why was Tacoma FD Season 5 cancelled?

Tacoma FD was co-executively produced by Chris Miller and Phil Lord and stood out as a distinctive fictional series. Although the show pushed the boundaries of various film genres, the decision to discontinue the series was influenced by multiple factors. The show creator announced on social media,

Hi all. We got the sad news today. The Tacoma FD has come to an end. Despite the great run we had and the new audience we reached on Netflix, our current network has decided to get out of the business of making scripted comedy. It was a crazy ride at TruTv as we went through 2 corporate takeovers and 4 different bosses in 4 seasons. But the 4 seasons we had the privilege to play were the highlights of our careers. We want to thank all of you out there who supported the show. We’re happy to know more people will discover it as it enjoys its new life on Netflix.
