Oh, this is going to tick off sooooo many people.
NBC has decided to cancel Southland! They have finished filming six episodes for season two but NBC suddenly pulled the plug on the show. There's still a chance that a cable network could pick it up. I can picture the show on FX or TNT or USA. Or maybe NBC could put it on Bravo? Nah, then they'd have no room for Real Housewives of Bangor, Maine.
I can't say I watched every episode of the show, but it certainly had potential, and I was interested in how they were going to resolve what happened to Tom Everett Scott in the first season finale.
Another reason fans are going to be ticked off? The show is going to be replaced by another episode of Dateline. Producer John Wells says: "I'm disappointed that NBC no longer has the time periods available to support the kind of critically-acclaimed series that was for so many years, a hallmark of their success. We remain extremely proud of Southland and are actively looking for another home for the series."
