Southland Scores Third Season, Thanks TNT!

Southland Scores Third Season, Thanks TNT!

Benjamin McKenzie fans, rejoice!

Southland has been picked up by TNT for a third. The network has ordered 10 episodes for the third season, which is slated to begin airing in January 2011.

TNT picked up Southland after the series was dropped by NBC prior to the launch of its second season. TNT presented an encore of the seven-episode first season beginning in January 2010, followed by a premiere run of the six-episode second season beginning in March 2010.

ARE YOU PSYCHED for the third season of Southland??

    I am SO happy, Southland is amazing, i’m also happy for Ben Mckenzie who has worked hard and truly shed his Ryan Atwood persona to become a serious actor.

    Well done TNT, thank you so much.
    I really love this show and love Ben, i’ll happily wait for Jan 2011 if it means eventually I get to see more….. as long as Jared posts filming pics later in the year!!

  • Mike H

    Absolutely amazing performances. Makes you wonder if the episodes are taken from real life – seems so. I really like that there is no politics. I refuse to watch any Law & Order because of the political commentary.

    After NBC’s betrayal of the Southland cast and crew ( NBC basically reneged on the promise they made to the show’s creative team- a promise that NBC publicly made), the TV gods have smiled on Southland.

    It’s not always about the bottom line.

    Thank you, TNT.

  • Joy
