It seems like TNT’s gritty cop show SOUTHLAND is always on the verge of cancellation every season, with fans always having to wait until the very last minute to find out if they’ll get another season or not. Well fans, this year’s wait is over — SOUTHLAND has been officially renewed for a fifth season.
TNT’s head of programming Michael Wright made the announcement via press release:
I’m proud today to announce that TNT has ordered 10 episodes for a fifth season of Southland, scheduled to begin in February 2013.
Season after season, critics and fans alike have championed TNT’s Southland as one of television’s best dramas. This year, the show has not only solidified its impassioned fan base, but also picked up some new young-adult devotees along the way.
SOUTHLAND recently wrapped its fourth season back in March.
