The official announcement for Southland cancellation reads:
TNT has made the difficult decision not to renew Southland for another season. We are enormously proud of Southland, which stands as one of the best police dramas ever made. Executive producers John Wells, Chris Chulack and Jonathan Lisco, along with creator Ann Biderman and our partners at Warner Bros. Television, have given us five seasons of powerful, unforgettable storytelling, for which we are deeply grateful. We also want to thank the amazing cast for their impassioned, no-holds-barred performances, and the production team for their tenacity shooting on the streets of real-world Los Angeles. We wish everyone associated with Southland the very best.
This piece of news is not what most people expected, as the show creatively was very very good, but the ratings were a bit subpar for it to go beyond this season. Anyways, the show´s run has been quite good, making it to five seasons as a milestone.
