Well, it is official, TNT has canceled gritty cop drama Southland after five seasons, the network confirmed Friday. After one season on NBC and four seasons on TNT, the critically acclaimed but low rated show, was long rumored to be getting the axe. Southland featured unforgettable storylines and no-holds barred performances from its cast while filming on location all around Los Angeles. Let's hope the show is picked up by another network or even renewed by TNT if enough fans start a letter writing campaign to the network.

I'm afraid that boat has sailed, sir. "Coop" is likely dead, and even if not, it is unlikely he'd return to the force after the events of the finale. There is no "Southland" without John Cooper. I find the ending, although sad, completely in line with Southland's general theme--a tribute to the commitment the show had not to be hung up on happy endings. It ended on a typically Southland-ish note...and before it became cliche. I would not be for reviving Southland after the writers so aptly put it to bed.

BUMP mz66. The show was good and the way it ended is fitting if something good must come to an end and it usually does at somepoint. To revive it now I think it would loose a lot of "raport" for the story line that it created and raised. RIP John Cooper!
