'Southland' Canceled By TNT After 5 Seasons
Southland will not be renewed for a sixth season by TNT. This is not the first time Southland has found itself in the canceled pile; the show was canceled by NBC after one season before being saved by TNT.
The gritty cop show followed officers working in Los Angeles and stared Michael Cudlitz, Regina King, Shawn Hatosy and Ben McKenzie. Recently, the show attracted high profile guest stars such as Lucy Lui, who was featured in season four, and Chad Michael Murray, who appeared in season five’s first two episodes.
“We are enormously proud of Southland, which stands as one of the best police dramas ever made…We also want to thank the amazing cast for their impassioned, no-holds-barred performances, and the production team for their tenacity shooting on the streets of real-world Los Angeles. We wish everyone associated with Southland the very best,” the network said in a statement according to E!.
Unfortunately for fans of the show, Southland’s fifth (now final) season ended on a cliffhanger in April.
However, fans will be happy to know that McKenzie, King, and Hatosoy have each shot pilots that could be picked up for the fall season. Hatosoy is joined by CSI: Miami vet Adam Rodriguez for the CBS pilot, Reckless. McKenzie’s pilot, The Advocates, co-stars Mandy Moore and is also for the CBS network, while King’s comedy pilot, Divorce: A Love Story, is being made for ABC.
