SouthlandSouthland: Casting related scoop on season 5



Here’s some scoop on Southland from this week’s (Posted on 10/9/12) Ask Ausiello column.



Question: I’m so excited we get a fifth season of Southland. Any scoops? — Tom 

Ausiello: When the show returns, a new cop will be walking the beat: Lucero, a Mexican-American native of East L.A. whose POV of the city is colored by his experience of it. Lucero also — if you ask me — should be played by Jay Hernandez.




Southland is the show that refuses to die and I for one am thankful for that. It’s almost hard to believe that this show started out on NBC in 2009 before they cancelled it. Then, TNT picked it up and aired it for a season before a substantial budget cut and corresponding cast reduction. This was suposed to be evidence that the show was on the way out.


After that TNT refused to give the show a standard 13 episode season. Season three and four would only get 10 episodes and most tv pundits thought this was evidence that the show was on the way out again. And yet, here we are talking about a fifth season that will begin in February 2013. When it comes to Southland, never say die.
