21 Jump Street is about a group of under-age looking cops who go undercover at high schools to catch young criminals before they become older, more dangerous criminals. In later seasons, the team went less and less undercover on high schools, and the plots focused more on the cops' personal lives.

[show]Johnny Depp did not want to work on a television series, but agreed to a six-year contract, only because he did not believe the show would last more than one season. He also found it difficult to turn down the money and the chance to work with Frederic Forrest. But the show became a huge success mostly due to Depp's presence. By the third season, Depp was chafing at having to stay with the show instead of accepting various film offers. He began to complain about the scripts and often gave listless performances. With the help of his lawyers, Depp was released from his contract, and left the show after the fourth season.
- Johnny Depp often wore a tube sock in his pants as a joke during the filming of this show.
- Jason Priestley and Shannon Doherty (before making Beverly Hills, 90210) were both in their own episode on this show.
