'The Glades' Canceled After Season Finale Posted Season High


'The Glades' Canceled After Season Finale Posted Season High


The cancellation comes on the heels of reports that A and E renews another scripted series, 'Longmire'.

A&E cancels "The Glades" after four seasons. The network has decided not to pick up the crime drama series for a fifth season, a day after it was reported that renewal for the Clifton Campbell-created show was unlikely.

"The Glades" debuted in July 2010 with 3.6 million viewers, breaking A&E's records for most-watched and highest-rated original drama series telecast ever. It was the first scripted series on the cable channel that lasted more than one season.

The show starring Matt Passmore posted season high with 3.4 million total viewers for its season 4 finale, but the show's ratings gradually declined year-to-year. On the other hand, its companion "Longmire" posted gains in key demos each season. This likely contributes to A&E's decision to ditch "The Glades" and keep "Longmire" instead.

Through his Twitter, "Longmire" executive producer John Coveny recently revealed that the show would get a third season. "Thanks to the 5 million plus weekly fans (live+7). Young and older skewing alike! The call just came: SEASON 3 for #Longmire is a GO!" he wrote on Thursday, August 29. A&E hasn't made the official announcement though, since a deal hasn't been finalized yet.
