TNT cancels SOUTHLAND

After turning a second chance into four additional seasons, SOUTHLAND is done.

TNT has decided not to order a sixth season. The police drama ran for four seasons on TNT, with the initial airing on NBC. Despite low ratings, Southland drew rave reviews from critics and there immediately was talk of a transition to cable.

In a statement, TNT said “We are enormously proud of Southland, which stands as one of the best police dramas ever made. Executive producers John Wells, Chris Chulack and Jonathan Lisco, along with creator Ann Biderman and our partners at Warner Bros. Television, have given us five seasons of powerful, unforgettable storytelling, for which we are deeply grateful. 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.”
