Cast and characters
- David Herman as Kevin Crawford, a slightly overweight newly-hired police officer and the son of Chief Randall Crawford.
- Tom Kenny as Chief Randall Crawford, the police chief of Paradise PD and Kevin's father. Once a fine and proud cop, following an incident where his son shot off both of his testicles, making him incredibly bitter over the next thirteen years, which eventually led to his divorce with his wife. He has to put on testosterone patches frequently in order to keep his masculinity in check.
- Sarah Chalke as Gina Jabowski, a psychotic and violent police officer who often sexually harasses Dusty due to a fat fetish.
- Cedric Yarbrough as Gerald "Fitz" Fitzgerald, a police officer who suffers from PTSD. At the end of the first season he is revealed to be the Argyle Meth kingpin.
- Dana Snyder as Dusty Marlow, an obese police officer who is constantly being sexually harassed by Gina. He is extremely childish, and owns several cats at home.
- Snyder also voices Stanley Hopson, an elderly bisexual police officer who often gets sent to do out of the ordinary assignments by Chief Crawford. Despite his age, he is a sexual deviant, and frequently recounts lewd and disgusting stories of his previous sexual endeavours with other men. However, because of his advanced age, he is incredibly senile, and constantly carries out depraved and repulsive acts on a daily basis (he was once sent to court for frequent indecent exposure).
- Kyle Kinane as Bullet, a police dog who is addicted to the confiscated drugs that he is tasked with guarding.
- Grey Griffin as Mayor Karen Crawford, the mayor of Paradise, Kevin's mother, and Randall's ex-wife.
- Waco O'Guin as Robbie, a blonde redneck who sells argyle meth.
- Roger Black as Delbert, Robbie's best friend and sidekick who also sells argyle meth.

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.

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." 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." 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."
