Great news for fans of good drama: TNT has renewed Southland for a fourth season.
The network originally acquired the series after NBC ridiculously canceled it to try out The Jay Leno Show at 10 p.m.
“Southland has been acknowledged by many critics as one of the sharpest, most entertaining and most authentic dramas on television today,” said Michael Wright, EVP/head of programming for TNT. “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.”
