After earning a Peabody Award and then airing one of the most gripping episodes of TV in years, Southland has been canceled. TNT announced today that its little-watched cop drama would cruise the streets of Los Angeles no more, which means the series ended on quite a cliffhanger. (John Cooper, we’ll miss you forever.) Some day soon, all of Southland is gonna be on Netflix (or whatever we use in the future), and everyone’s going to be all, “Oh my goodness, have you ever watched Southland? It’s so good and aggressive and different.” And while it’s always fun to say “I told you so,” this particular victory will be bittersweet.
