'The Glades' Canceled After Season Finale Posted Season High

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.

My daughter and I are very disappointed in A&E, this was one of our favorite shows. A&E used to be a really good network but, now I find there's more garbage than anything. I find it disturbing that shows like Honey Boo Boo and Duck Dynasty overrule a show like The Glades. It's annoying that a show with as many viewers as The Glades can be canceled without even finishing it...sounds like a network that doesn't really care about it's viewers. I've been paying extra just to have this channel, but I'll be cancelling it now as there's mostly garbage on it.

Are you guys crazy at A&E? Seriously I'm shocked! I've been watching that show since the very beginning of it. And now you just cancel it? I'm totally disappointed!

So typical! You HAD to cancel one of my favorite shows with a cliffhanger?!! The least you could do is give us a two-hour special to tie up loose ends and have the wedding we've all been waiting for! So disappointed with you.

I can't believe The Glades was cancelled! I loved having 2 great shows in The Glades and Longmire back to back. Especially with a big cliff hanger! How about a TV movie at least to wrap things up.

You've got tone kidding, one of the best shows. Maybe you should listen to the fans. You left us hanging. We need to know what happens, after that cliffhanger.

We have watched the show from the very beginning and this really upsets us you would end the series like this ,you could have let them get married and lived happy ever after. This is really upsetting
