BURN NOTICE Gets … Well, Its Burn Notice and TNT’s SOUTHLAND Gets Cancelled

     May 10, 2013


Two crime dramas have been given the ax today.  First up is USA’s spy series Burn Notice, which will begin airing its final season on Thursday, June 6th at 9/8c.  Starring Jeffrey Donovan, Gabrielle Anwar and Bruce CampbellBurn Notice will bring the exploits of the disavowed spy Michael Westen (Donovan) to an end with its seventh season.

Meanwhile, TNT’s cop drama Southland has been cancelled, meaning that the show’s fifth season finale (which aired on April 17th) will serve as the series finale as well.  Southland’s leads, Ben McKenzie, Regina King and Shawn Hatosy, have all booked pilots so you may see them again soon.  Hit the jump to watch the season seven premiere teaser for Burn Notice.

Deadline reports that Southland has been cancelled and word of Burn Notice’s final season comes via the following promo piece:

    Dammit, Southland was good. This is why we can’t have nice things.

  • Scurvy

    Burn Notice had a good run but they really failed to grow the show past the same plot every season of a new bad guy who is really really really the real bad guy until he is beaten and a new really real bad guy shows up.

    I just hope they give it a proper send off.

    No not Southland! It was probably the best cop show on television.

    Burn Notice and Southland were both great shows, and I’ll definitely miss them when they’re gone. That being said, I feel like the writing on Southland has been kind of lacking recently so I’m not shocked it’s been cancelled. For the last few months I’ve been working nights at DISH so I haven’t been home to watch either show as they’ve aired. Thankfully I have both shows recorded and waiting for me on my DISH Hopper. Since I can record and store over 400 hours of content on the Hopper; I can keep the shows as long as I want without having to delete them to make space for my family’s favorite shows.
