southland-cancelled-renewed-tnt-season-fiveMore information to fill the lists for cancelled shows of 2012 and renewed shows of 2012.   This one is a happy feel good story for a very solid show that got cancelled after one season, but then moved to cable and found its place in the world on TNT and now Southland gets renewed for season five. Talk about a phoenix kind of comeback.

Michael Wright, president and head of programming for TNT, TBS and Turner Classic Movies said in an official release I’m proud today to announce that TNT has ordered 10 episodes for a fifth season of Southland, scheduled to begin in February 2013.

Season after season, critics and fans alike have championed TNT’s Southland as one of television’s best dramas. This year, the show has not only solidified its impassioned fan base, but also picked up some new young-adult devotees along the way.

Michael Wright, continued in his announcement about Southland getting renewed for season five by saying “We are very proud of Southland and grateful to everyone involved in the series, including executive producers John Wells, Chris Chulack and Jonathan Lisco; creator Ann Biderman; and our partners at Warner Bros. Television. We look forward to going deeper into the lives of Southland‘s extraordinary characters and the streets they struggle to keep safe next year”.
