TV show description:
This cop drama follows the LAPD’s multi-agency Gang Task Force as they take on the city’s most dangerous gangs.

Detective Ryan Lopez (Ramon Rodriguez) is a rising star in the force but he has a secret. He lost his father at an early age and was taken in and raised by the Acosta family. Before he became a cop, Ryan pledged his allegiance to a different band of brothers –- the powerful Latino gang called Los Angelicos.

When Ryan’s best friend and police partner is senselessly killed by a notorious gang member, Ryan teams up with Task Force member and DEA Agent Cassius Green (RZA). He’s been at the forefront of the city’s war on organized crime for a long time.

Despite his devotion to his job, Ryan is still beholden to the crime family’s leader, Javier Acosta (Cliff Curtis). He’s the father figure that Ryan has tried to make proud his entire life — and the man who masterminded his entry into the police force.

Ryan’s secret has been held for a decade by Ryan, Javier, and Javier’s sons; cold-blooded gang lieutenant Carlos (Rey Gallegos) and straight-laced investment banker Daniel (Jay Hernandez), Ryan’s childhood best friend.

But Ryan is starting to realize that he is even more dedicated to being a cop than he is to Los Angelicos. He is respected by his team, including FBI Agent Tae Kim (Sung Kang), ICE Agent Vanessa “Vee” Hicks (Inbar Lavi) and the task force leader, Sam Chapel (Terry O’Quinn).

Chapel is Ryan’s other surrogate father figure. His estranged daughter, Jessica (Shantel VanSanten), is the city’s Assistant District Attorney.

Series Finale

Episode #13 — Malandros
Daniel uses his wedding to finalize a deal between Javier and Lavar Quintel. Chapel leads his team into Mexico to find murder suspect Matias. Chapen and Ryan learn that Javier ordered the hit on Jessica. Ryan has Javier transferred to the metas side of jail where he finds a “welcome party.”
First aired: August 14, 2014.

Big mistake! Just found this show. It’s a great show

This was a great show and why it was cancelled I have no idea. It was one of the very few shows on primetime television that I watched. This show should not have been cancelled, also this was a show that could’ve kept the interest of viewers not only with Ryan but with all the other officers in that task force because it seemed as though all of them had a story behind hem an as a viewer I wanted to know.

Randy September 20, 2014 at 9:14 am

PLEASE, PLEASE, either reconsider cancelling GANG RELATED, or another network pick it up!!!!!! Too good to let it go, people just didn’t know about this show. Once watched, you’re hooked. Great storytelling , acting, and production values!!!!!

DAMMIT This was a good show!!! Networks need to consider ratings differently when they air in the summer – I looked forward to this every week especially in the land of rerun or no rerun and just plain crap-ola that has literally become nothing but reality garbage. If the ratings weren’t as high as a Fall show – so what? It was on in the summer and it was a good show!!!!


Darren September 20, 2014 at 12:41 pm

I have to agree that television has become a big “reality” tv show, and if the producer has to guide you on how to react or comment on something then is it reality….NOT! All the good shows always get cancelled.

Hell no it should not have been cancelled!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!T

Gang Related should not have been cancelled. One of the few shows on Fox that was worth watching, too bad another Network won’t pick it up.

As per usual Fox cancels another good show. Seriously, what does a show on Fox have to do to not get canceled? Surviving Jack was hilarious and of course they canceled it as well. I don’t know why I even bother getting invested in a show on Fox because sooner or later they will can it!

Fell in love with the show; best show on Fox besides the following.


mike September 17, 2014 at 8:30 pm

this show was really good and had a great plot what passes for entertainment these days is beyond me


A Starling September 16, 2014 at 4:43 pm

This show was great once you got into the story, however, the xbox tweens and you owe me 20 somethings that are basically too brain dead to follow anything like this plot so I am certain it will be cancelled.


Larry Rhodes September 16, 2014 at 9:18 am

Absolutely love the show!!! No way it should have been cancelled!!! I think you should cancel your writerus instead of the whole show!!! I am sure you could find some very good writers to keep the show up and running!!! There is not enough good TV programs out there these days and yall want to cancel one of the best there is!!! Something must be done to change this!!!


chris September 16, 2014 at 6:37 am

Ruby Bega September 17, 2014 at 5:22 pm
