January return for TNT cop show

0 Comments 27 August 2011

Criminally* underrated cop show Southland will return to US screens in January, giving New TV Shows cause for celebration. We like to see the underdog win every now and again, especially when it means a show as accomplished as Southland gets given a second chance to find its audience.

The show, which previously saw its 13-episode second season slashed to six before ultimately being given the axe by NBC, was picked up by current network TNT in 2009. Following the airing of a relatively well-received third season, the network confirmed back in March that Southland, which follows the lives of a selection of LAPD officers, would be back for a fourth.

The specifics of the show’s return were finally revealed this week, so if you’re one of the few with excellent taste in TV then mark off January 17, 2012 on your calendar — that’s when the first of 10 new episodes will premiere.

The network also announced that the new season will see series regulars Regina King, Shawn Hatosy, Michael Cudlitz and Ben McKenzie joined by recurring guest star Lucy Liu, who will play a previously unseen member of the LAPD.

Other TNT shows returning during the Autumn/Winter schedule include The Closer, Rizzoli & Isles and Leverage — all of which will resume their current seasons at the end of November.

*Ha! Get it? Cop show/criminally underrated! We really are very funny.
