the-glades-cancelled-renewed-season-four-aeWe are in the middle of September and the shows filling the lists of cancelled shows of 2012 and renewed shows of 2012 are already around 300 shows, and they keep coming. Now, A&E renews The Glades for season four. The announcement was made today by David McKillop, Executive Vice President of Programming for A&E Network and BIO Channel. 

If you look at the numbers you can easily understand why A&E renewed The Glades, since season three averaged 4.1 million viewers, up 5% from season 2 (Numbers based on Live + 7). The tandem of The Glades and Longmire, also renewed, made A&E to become ad-supported cable´s number one network on Sunday nights among total viewers this summer when the shows were on. So can you seriously think of a different outcome than A&E renewing The Glades for season four?

New season will start production soon and will premiere in 2013. A&E is currently in pre-production on the new scripted drama series “Bates Motel,” slated for a 2013 premiere and the second season of the scripted hit series “Longmire,” which also will premiere in 2013.
