BREAKING: SOUTHLAND renewed for Season 3

I’ve been having a lousy day, what with the crappy weather in my area AND the raging sinus headache, so I want to send a big thank you to the folks at TNT for renewing one of my favorite dramas for a third season!  SOUTHLAND will return to the network in January 2011 with 10 all new episodes.  No word on which cast members will be back (hopefully all of them), or how soon after Season 2 the new season will be set.  Here is a part of TNT’s official release explaining why they chose to stick with the little show that could!

TNT has booked a third season of its critically acclaimed drama
SOUTHLAND, from Warner Bros. Television and Emmy(r)-winning producer
John Wells (ER, The West Wing). The network has ordered 10 episodes for
the third season, which is slated to begin airing in January 2011.

“SOUTHLAND is a challenging, visceral show that engages viewers with its
immersive style, provocative storylines and complex characters,” said
Michael Wright, executive vice president, head of programming, for TNT,
TBS and Turner Classic Movies (TCM). “These qualities have made
SOUTHLAND a favorite among critics and appointment viewing for an
extremely loyal audience.”

You have until January 2011 to get caught up on the first 13 episodes and then bring all of your friends along to watch the new ones when they get here!
