Thank you for an amazing show!

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.

*sigh* Not unpredicted, but still, damn.

This is a shame. It's twice the show of anything else on their line up. I appreciate the extra life given to the show by TNT, but when this goes and two miserably fake cop shows remain I just cringe.

Question - want spoilers!

Sorry if this is a random question, I used to watch SouthLAnd but due to time constraints and lack of cable I didn't keep up fully, but may I ask who the father of Lydia's kid is? Also, does Tom Evertt Scott come back in the end?

Yup, TES came back and he and Lydia were looking cozy. I don't remember the character's name, but the baby's father is that married guy (now divorced) Lydia had been seeing a season or so ago...

Thank you! I always wanted TES and Regina's character to get together. So, I take it she broke up with her partner's son?

Oh yeah, a while ago....

Sigh... Expected but still .... Considering some of the crap that seems to "live" forever.... At least some of the cast has some possible new shows lined up...

Well, now I have absolutely no reason to watch TNT anymore. First they get rid of Leverage and now the only new show worth watching. Freaking cheapskates! They would rather show reruns and "reality shows than have a great scripted show. Screw you, TNT!!! I'm done with you!

Veery sad
(Anonymous) on May 14th, 2013 03:46 pm (UTC)
Really? This show had some of the best writing on TV! There are so few well scripted and well acted shows, with all the reality crap that is available (And I mean crap!). Dammit, indeed....

Such a shame that Southland will not be back. Great cast. Great show. Why are the networks taking off all the good shows? TV is becoming terrible.
(Anonymous) on May 15th, 2013 04:48 pm (UTC)
I am truly devastated that this show has been cancelled. I don't watch too much TV, but I never missed this show. I certainly hope TNT knows what they're doing.

(Anonymous) on May 15th, 2013 08:38 pm (UTC)
You can't end it this way!!! We don't know if Cooper is alive! Southland is one of my favorite shows! Terrible move TNT!!!!
(Anonymous) on May 16th, 2013 07:23 pm (UTC)
Bring this series back! What is the network thinking? Fans out there, petition the network to bring it back
(Anonymous) on May 16th, 2013 07:26 pm (UTC)
Hey fans, how about we pressure TNT to bring Southland back and while we're at it, Leverage.
(Anonymous) on May 19th, 2013 03:29 pm (UTC)
UFB!!! Once again TV jettisons a well-crafted program in favor of ratings. It will be interesting to see how TNT replaces "Southland." Surely the newtwork honchos have something stellar in mind, like another vampire or reality show. For once I would like to see quality programming withstand the whim of ratings, but that is why TV is called "the boob tube."

One of two shows I actually look forward to each week. A very well acted and written show with gripping plotlines. You were cancelled once before and TNT resurrected you. Its not over till its over! (FYI. The other show I watch was cancelled 2X before and its still on.)
(Anonymous) on May 23rd, 2013 11:37 am (UTC)
This is so discouraging. This one of the shows on. I am over good shows being canceled. I am ready to call it quits on tv watching. Everything I get hooked in a show it gets canceled.
(Anonymous) on May 29th, 2013 05:58 pm (UTC)
My heart was broken when I read the show was being canceled. I love this show, the actors, the story lines.
(Anonymous) on May 30th, 2013 12:35 am (UTC)
This saddens me greatly. The characters were so very real, raw at times. Southland was so sophisticated and often painful to watch. Thank you all.
(Anonymous) on May 31st, 2013 07:45 am (UTC)
I can't believe y'all are taking away something I really love watching off the television and have a stupid ending like tthat's why I hate getting into a show and then it ends stupid thanks a lot for ruining my season
(Anonymous) on June 3rd, 2013 09:55 am (UTC)
One of the three shows I watch cable for, now gone. Gonna miss this show. Always kept you wanting more. Great, amazing show.
(Anonymous) on June 4th, 2013 02:16 am (UTC)
why would one of the best shows on tv not be renewed? what was TNT thinking? I watch so little tv and this was the highlight of my week. Thank you very little TNT! I will boycott your network!

Check out Crime and Consequences - a new web TV serio-dramady about the cops working in the Hillside Division of southern California. Fans could actually appear in the show. We need your support!

Check it out at http://crimeandconsequences.tv/goindie or www.crimeandconsequences.tv.

So sad to hear that southland is cancelled by far the most intense, raw true to real life cop show I have ever seen. I enjoyed every episode! Wishing you all the best in the future.
