TNT Picks Up Southland

Southland is back! Yay, more Ben McKenzie!

After rumors of the show’s revival, it’s official: TNT has picked up Southland and will air episodes beginning January 12 on Tuesdays @ 10 PM ET/PT.

“We’re delighted that TNT has stepped forward to pick up Southland,” executive producer John Wells said. “We are all extremely proud of the show.”

The network has exclusive rights to air the first season’s seven episodes as well as six episodes shot for the second season.

The cop drama, which originally premiered on NBC last season to good ratings, was renewed for a second season and subsequently dropped by the network.

    It is too bad they could not do that for Moonlight after it was cancelled by CBS after one season. Great premise, great characters.

    SouthLAnd is one of the best shows out there. Can’t wait for Sherman, Cooper, Adams and company to return. I’m definitely hoping for expanded season1 episodes along with the new ones-and of course for further episodes to be made.
