Yes! TNT Renews "Southland" For 5th Season!

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!

Miss. King not that good as a actor or in the look department.


Hahahahaha! I didn't mean to start a thread about the young man's But as a filmmaker who pays attention to EVERY actor I see in a film, I still stand by my opinion of Mr Missick's work. I happened to watch Freedomland numerous times for plot study reasons, and his performance stood out to me. that is all. I see him in a lot of things and therefor feel hollywood too is now recognizing him.


Thank you, I love this show!!!!


I quit — I'm done judging the future success of black actors. Well, when it comes to black actors it's surely a crap shoot. Well, I stopped by this post to see what all the fuss was about. I knew Regina King can act, I've always enjoyed her. But that dude next to her looked kind of familiar but I couldn't quite remember where I saw him. I watch a lot of movie this week — but that guy's face? Then it hit me, he was the worst actor in Pete Chatmon's "Premium" (I watched it 6 days ago while I was on my CodeBlack pilgrimage). Zoe Saldana was in it and so was Hill Harper… it had a good cast — but Dorian Missick was embarrassing. The boy looked like he was acting the whole time. But hey — what do I know — the man is in the 6th season of Southland. Who would have thought it?
