'Southland' canceled: Season 6 not picked up by TNT, but there might be a movie!
"TNT has made the difficult decision not to renew Southland for another season," the network says in a statement. "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."
Because Season 5 ended on a shocking cliffhanger, there are reports that TNT is considering a two-hour wrap up movie to tie up the loose ends. In the Season 5 finale, Ben was branded a dirty cop and Cooper was shot by officers after assaulting a neighbor.
After the announcement, McKenzie tweeted, "To all the fans of #Southland who followed us through the years through thick and very thin, I sincerely thank you. We are kindred spirits."
