SouthLAnd

TNT officially announced that it has cancelled SouthLAnd on May 10, 2013. There may still be some hope for a two-hour wrap-up film for the series, but for now that’s not much more than a hope.

Tommy had this to say on the day of the announcement: “I would like to thank everyone for supporting #SouthLAnd over the years. I will certainly miss it. A-35 Officer Dudek… End of watch.”

If you haven’t seen it yet, make sure to check out the show on Amazon or other services.

Here’s our FAQ section for Season 5 and earlier:

Season 5 of SouthLAnd began filming on November 27, 2012. Tommy has appeared in every season of the show, and he’s promised us #MoreDewey in Season 5, so get your tasers ready!

Tommy is now officially a part of the main cast on SouthLAnd (no more guest starring): MICHAEL AUSIELLO Exclusive: Southland Elevates C. Thomas Howell to Series Regular in Season 5

One thought on “SouthLAnd”

  1. SEstimado amigo Howell, leyendo un poco sobre la entrevista que preside la entrada de su página web dice usted habla un poco el español (o eso creo haber leído ya que yo hablo y leo muy poco el inglés). Si es así, quiero expresarle que es un inmenso honor el hecho de que alguien como usted haya encontrado un mínimo de interés en mi idioma. Hace una semana descubrí que usted fue uno de los protagonistas de “The Outsiders” junto con Macchio. Un papel estelar muy bien interpretado. Recuerdo que esa película la vi cuando yo era un niño, sobre 1985/6 en España. Nunca la volví a ver hasta que indagando sobre películas de Tom Cruise me dije a mi mismo de conseguir algunas; así fue como me reencontré con “The Outsiders”. Desde entonces he estado navegando por Internet buscando biografía y filmografía sobre usted y Ralph Macchio y conseguir tantas películas como pueda. Lástima que varias de ellas no pueda encontrarlas doblado a mi idioma (español) o al menos subtitulado…Ustedes dos marcaron mucho a dos generaciones de mi País con sus excelentes interpretaciones. Llegué a creer que después de los años 80 no siguieron trabajando como actores. Son muchas cosas las que me gustaría decirle a usted pero creo que ni esta pequeña carta la leerá… Tengo experiencia en ser uno más del montón que se dirige a alguien célebre y caer en el olvido algún pequeño reconocimiento (uno más) con esta carta a una persona con un buen talento. En fin, me gustaría tener un contacto regular con usted y Macchio sobre su trayectoria profesional y, sin meterme donde no me llaman, su vida en general. ¡Mucho ánimo en su trabajo actual en SouthLand y cuídese mucho!
