“Southland” Canceled; TNT Formally Confirms Police Drama’s end

After five seasons, “SouthLAnd” has finally reached its conclusion.

TNT officially confirmed Friday that the beloved and critically-acclaimed cop drama will not return for a sixth season.

TNT has made the difficult decision not to renew Southland for another season. 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.

After suffering cancellation by NBC, the critical darling moved to TNT, where it continued to generate rave reviews but failed to ignite ratings. It had been considered a bubble series for the duration of its TNT run, and this year, its luck finally ran out.
