It's a sad day for whoever it is watched The Glades. A&E canceled the series after four seasons today, says The Hollywood Reporter, less than a week after the Season 4 finale notched a season-high audience with 3.4 million viewers. Cruel! The Glades was an initial success for the network and was the first A&E scripted series to get a second season.
Created by Clifton Campbell, The Glades was about a detective from The Windy City who took a job with the Florida Department of Law Enforcement looking for a paid vacation in the sun. But little did he know that people get murdered in Florida, too. That, and alligators. Matt Passmore and Kieli Sanchez starred in the drama.
The announcement comes just a day after word got out that A&E was about to renew Longmire. With The Glades gone, the only original scripted dramas on A&E are Longmire and Bates Motel. But soon it will be three again; the Chloe Sevigny-starrer Those Who Kill has been ordered to series for debut in 2014.
