Chad Michael Murray Joins Season 5 Of Southland
One Tree Hillís popular athlete, lover, and brother, Lucas, quit the CW show in 2009 (later appearing in the last season to help bring closure to the program at the end of its run). In the time since, heís done some film work as well as some TV movies, but has not chosen any serious television roles. However, Murray has now signed on to join another CW alum on TNTís Southland for a few episodes in Season 5.
The OCís Ben McKenzie has been working hard on Southland since the seriesí inception, and his character even bumped up from a rookie rank to a Police Officer II rank last season. TV Line is reporting that McKenzieís Officer Sherman may encounter some troubling times after spending time outside of work with Murrayís character, Dave Mendoza, on the TNT drama.
Murray will be joining Southlandís Season 5 cast for multiple episodes. His character, Mendoza, is being described as an amiable cop who also has a hot streak. While that first personality trait sounds fun, the second sounds like it could get the character into hot water, and I worry Mendoza might take Sherman down with him. Come hell or high water, at least theyíll both look smoking in those uniforms. We still have a while to wait to determine what will go on plot-wise, because Southland doesnít return to TNTís schedule until well after the holidays.
Season 5 of Southland will premiere Wednesday, February 13 at 10 p.m. ET.
