And it's about damn time too!
Southland will live to fight another day... another 10 days, as TNT has ordered 10 episodes for a 5th season of the police drama - a show I only started watching this season, and was instantly hooked!
Season 5 is slated to begin in February 2013, so a few months to wait, although time flies!
Great news of course for its cast, which includes Regina King as Detective Lydia Adams, and Dorian Missick as her partner, Detective Ruben Robinson. Although the list of series' regulars, recurring, and guests, is long; as is its crew list, which includes Cheo Hodari Coker - a series writer, and co-producer - whom I wrote about this morning (penning an adaptation of Walter Mosley's Man In The Basement with Anthony Mackie attached to star.
For season 5, the show plan on "going deeper into the lives of Southland‘s extraordinary characters and the streets they struggle to keep safe," said Michael Wright President, Head of Programming TNT.
Looking forward to it!
