TNT bringing back Southland
LOS ANGELES — TNT has renewed “Southland” for a fifth season, the network announced Friday.
The 10-episode season is scheduled to roll out in February 2013. It’s the show’s fourth season on the cable network after a brief stint on NBC in 2009.
The LAPD cop drama, which stars Ben McKenzie, Michael Cudlitz and Regina King, has had a firm run on TNT. The series averaged 2.9 million viewers in its most recent season, which wrapped in March, and saw ratings improvements in the 18-49 and 25-54 age groups.
