Just a few weeks after Southland's Season 5 finale aired, TNT opted to cancel its on-the-street cop drama. Despite Season 5 being the last time weíll get to see the cast in action, fans of the show will be able to relive their favorite moments from the final episodes when Southland: The Complete Fifth and Final Season hits DVD on August 13.
If the CBS pilot Reckless goes to series, they won't have to worry about replacing Shawn Hatosy. The actor took a role alongside Cam Gigandet in Dana Stevens' legal drama Reckless, but it was in second position to his commitments to TNT's Southland. But it looks like that won't be an issue now, as Southlandis not being renewed for another season. The cop drama's cancellation comes just weeks after the series aired the finale episode of its fifth season.
Even if things go south for Southland, Shawn Hatosy may not have to turn in his badge. The actor has been cast to play a police detective in the CBS drama pilot Reckless, joining Cam Gigandet. The project is being directed by Catherine Hardwicke, who - like Gigandet - lists Twilight among her credits. Those worried about what this latest bit of casting means for Southland, it appears to be further indication that the TNT drama's stars are lining up alternate roles, in the event that Southland is cancelled.
