Great news for fans of TNT’s ‘SouthLAnd‘ the network has officially greenlit a fourth season! Since ending its third season, rumors kept popping up that TNT was close to renewing it, but there was still that ounce of will they / won’t they given TNT’s recent surge of signing on new pilots. Worry no more, the show has been given a 10 – episode order.
The show’s third season was the first time the series had the opportunity of producing a fully unedited and un-interrupted full season. Originally a NBC show, SouthLAnd was quickly given the boot by the network, a move that confused many. TNT later picked up the series, re-airing the original NBC episodes as Season 1, airing the unaired episodes as Season 2, and ordering ten episodes for Season 3.
SOUTHLAND has been acknowledged by many critics as one of the sharpest, most entertaining and most authentic dramas on television today. John Wells, Chris Chulack and their teams created a brilliant roller coaster ride this season, with countless riveting scenes and unforgettable character arcs. We are extremely proud to have SOUTHLAND on TNT and to bring it back for a fourth season. – Michael Wright, Executive VP, Head of Programming for TNT, TBS and Turner Classic Movies (TCM)
According to TNT, SouthLAnd‘s third season averaged 2.9 million viewers a week, a 6% increase over season two. Sound off fans, are you excited? You can keep up to date with the cast of the show, as Michael Cudlitz (@Cudlitz) and Shawn Hatosy (@ShawnHatosy) are both on Twitter.
