SOUTHLAND: TNT orders fifth season.

After a rocky start that saw it get dumped by NBC, SOUTHLAND has really shined. The police drama has had three successful seasons on TNT and are moving forward for a fifth.

On Friday, the cable network announced they have ordered a fifth season of ten episodes.

President Michael Wright, Head of Programming: “We are very proud of Southland and grateful to everyone involved in the series, including executive producers John Wells, Chris Chulack and Jonathan Lisco; creator Ann Biderman; and our partners at Warner Bros. Television. We look forward to going deeper into the lives of Southland‘s extraordinary characters and the streets they struggle to keep safe next year.”
