TNT Picks Up Southland

Southland got canceled last month, after just eight episodes on NBC. Show creators didn’t get their hopes down after getting cut from the lineup, and immediately started in on finding the show a new home.

And it looks like their determination paid off, since TNT has officially picked it up! The new network has acquired the rights to air all six episodes that have been shot for the second season, as well as the seven episodes from the first season.

Steve Koonin, president of Turner Entertainment Networks said, “This is a great win for fans of Southland and a perfect opportunity to introduce the series to new viewers. It’s also another outstanding example of how TNT has established itself as the go-to place for the best dramas on television.”

Peter Roth, president of Warner Bros. Television continued, “We are extremely pleased that TNT has acquired all 13 episodes of Southland, giving devoted fans the opportunity to watch a show that they passionately support.”

Southland will air on TNT Tuesdays at 10PM, beginning with the first episode of the series on January 12th.
