It is being reported that L.A.'s Finest has been cancelled by Spectrum after two seasons. The sad news comes a month after the cop drama released its 13-episode sophomore run.

The series premiered in 2019 as Spectrum's first original series. It was initially commissioned by NBC for a pilot in early 2018, but the network ultimately ended up passing on it. While reviews were ultimately mixed, Spectrum noted a strong audience response after Season 1. Fox is currently airing the show's first season in a move to help fill its Fall lineup in light of a lack of content due to the ongoing pandemic.

Headlined by Jessica Alba and Gabrielle Union, L.A.'s Finest acts as an offshoot of the "Bad Boys" movie franchise. Union plays Miami DEA agent Syd Burnett, who leaves her complicated past behind to become a detective for the LAPD. Her new partner Nancy McKenna, played by Alba, is a working mother with just as many skeletons in her closet. While the two women have a hard time seeing eye to eye, they have no problem forming a dynamic duo in order to take down dangerous criminals in Los Angeles.
