Cancellation Buzz: TNT May Grab Southland - Featured

NBC may have canceled Southland last week, but all hope is not yet dead for the gritty police series (which already happens to have 6 season 2 episodes shot and ready to go).



The Hollywood Reporter states that talks between NBC and TNT regarding a Southland pickup have advanced.


What's more - TNT shares a corporate parent with NBC (Warner Bros. TV, who produces Southland) and would appear to be a good thematic fit, as they are already airing a variety of cop-themed shows.


Would you follow Southland over to TNT?

I hope they do pick it up, we don't get it over here in the UK but I caught the first season online and thought it had real promise. I was upset to here it might be taken of the air because it's too dark for the 9pm slot.

I remember reading somewhere that Southland had really good ratings. Why cancel it?!
I didn't even know it got canceled I came on here seeing when the new premiere date was and discovered this saddening news. Southland was a great show, in fact it was the main show I was waiting for to return this fall.
It would be a perfect show for TNT to add to their lineup.

I would definitely follow! Such a good show. NBC is so insanely stupid it's no wonder they're at the bottom of the ratings.

Too many cop/medical/reality shows Put them on the back burner where they need to be (at 12a-1am if possible) Notice there is no Sci-Fi in prime time on broadcast.
And the proposed rehash/update of 'V' is splintered to first 4 shows in Nov then disappear until MAR? You're gonna lose the audience because we will have gone on and set our winter schedules for living LIFE in the winter. I liked it better in the old days when Sept was the rollout month then at least the shows lasted until DEC.
