The cop drama ends after five seasons.
May 10, 2013
TNT has cancelled Southland after five seasons on the air. The cop drama got its start in 2009 on NBC, where it was originally axed after its first season. TNT stepped in and acquired the rights to the existing episodes, eventually renewing the show and keeping it on the air for three additional seasons.

Cant believe it. I absolutely LOVE 'Southland'. Now I really dont have anything to watch.Im down to 2 tv series that have captured and kept my attention. There are all of these new series that keep popping up and the good ones dont seem to last.(South land was a GREAT series by the way) There really isnt any much to watch anymore. This is just depressing.

It seems to me everyone should be blaming / suing the Neilson ratings people for discriminating against people over 49 for all the good shows being canceled. If you're between 18-49 years old you get your choice of what to watch. Over 49 and your voice just does not count anymore. Loved this show. Hate to see it gone.

OMG. I can't believe this show is cancelled. There is so little good, no brilliant , shows to watch with intense, real life everday writing. No sugar coated politically correct writing . As a member of a police family,in the major city in Illinois, this is the way the cops are treated, talked to and the crap they put up with to serve and protect. They acting was excellent. What a shame. Nothing on tv except stupidity. Big mistake, people are tired up being thought of as idiots who want shows with no brains.

it's sad that that tnt would cancel this show, one of the best shows on all tv or cable! if your current stars are in salary disputes cause that would be the only reason to cancel then bring in some new cast members but don't cancel the show like this! the actors are great, the show has a big following at least give it a proper ending to series. think about it tnt, dvd sales!

Being somewhat of an industry person, I have a hunch I know why Southland was canceled. If it was "preordained" to be canceled (think the show "Damages" which suddenly came to a halt w/an assanine conclusion, but a "conclusion" none the less); the producers would've still tried to tie up the ends of this "final season". Afterall, the box set on DVD's still would have some merit; but NOT with the way this show went off the air. Something besides "low ratings" must've occurred and since we are now hearing a few of the stars on Southland were already eyeballing other projects before the end of Season Five my two word hunch is this: "Salary Disputes".

The shows on TNT and USA are good shows but its hard to get a following when they play them for 8 shows +/- in the middle of summer or periodically haphazardly around the year. Why not 15-20 shows stating in October?

great show. Figures it would be cancelled in favor of the crap that remains. Survivor , Bachelor, splash etc

I LOVE LOVE LOVE this show! I was All Set For The Next Season & Now I Find Out There Will NOT Be Any More Seasons....I'm SUPER Tired of These BS "Scripted" Reality Shows! This Show Was As Good As Law & Order SVU or Criminal Minds if You Ask Me....The Least They Could Have Done Was To Allow The Show To Conclude Before The Cancelled It....How Can We Stop A Show From Getting Cancelled....TV is Going Straight To Hell In A Handbasket! Pretty Soon There Won't Be Anything To Watch!?!?

The best show since Hillstreet Blues aired. Get it back TNT! Your loss of viewers is going to be enormous! Hope it was worth it! FIRE ever who made this decision!!
