TNT has renewed gritty cop drama Southland for a 10-episode fourth season, the network announced Tuesday.|
"John Wells, Chris Chulack and their teams created a brilliant roller coaster ride this season, with countless riveting scenes and unforgettable character arcs," Michael Wright, executive vice president and head of programming for TNT said in a statement.
The roller coaster metaphor is apt. The series, which stars Michael Cudlitz, Benjamin McKenzie, Regina King and Shawn Hatosy, aired its first season on NBC as a midseason replacement in the spring of 2009. NBC ordered a second season, but canceled the show before the six episodes already filmed ever aired. TNT aired those NBC-produced episodes and eventually renewed the show for a third season, which ended March 8.
The show averaged 2.9 million viewers during its most recent run, a 6 percent improvement over Season 2.
