Coming to Southland: Gang Warfare?

at . Comments

One change coming to Southland next season: it will air on Friday nights.

But one thing that won't change on the NBC police drama: it will continue to tackle real life issues.

For example, we already know that officer John Cooper's sexuality will be explored in depth during season two.

Detective Sammy Bryant

Now, Shawn Hatosy - who portrays Detective Sammy Bryant - has provided the following Southland preview when asked about the series by E! News:

"It's kind of picking up where we left off. It still has the honest approach at this world. My wife and I are still not getting along so great. It seems like we're heading toward something big this season. I can tell where the scripts are going by the training they give us.

"All I'll say is they brought in a gang detective who was a D3, the highest rank, detective three, like a supervisor of gangs. He came in and talked to us a lot about the birth of gangs in L.A. and walked us through all the steps these guys go through. So that tells me they're probably going to be delving a bit more into that."

Southland Quotes

You're a cop because you don't know how not to be one. If you feel that way, you're a cop. If you don't, you're not. You decide.

John Cooper

It seems like it changes nothing... but every once and awhile, you get to take a bad guy off the streets for good. And that, my friend, is God's work.
