Ben McKenzie holds onto a boy while co-star Michael Cudlitz looks on in this Southland preview pic.
The episode, titled “Cop or Not,” airs on Tuesday (February 8). Also pictured inside: Regina King and Shawn Hatosy.
Kevin Alejandro, whose character, Det. Nate Moretta, was killed off on the last episode, explained why he’s leaving the show.
“I’m a regular on True Blood so you’ll see me there. I wish I could have done both shows. If it had worked out that way, I would have been the happiest man in the world, but it works out the way it’s supposed to work out. Southland‘s been an amazing experience, and [this storyline] just fit into the way things were going,” he told E! Online.
As for what fans can expect in the next few episodes, “You get to mourn with Shawn and my family and you’ll see what the death causes within them and it effects other part of the department as well, with [Ben] and [Michael].”
“It sort of mildly effects everybody in the department,” Kevin added, “because it’s like a fraternity. All the brothers and sisters are effected on one level or another.”
