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.

So sick of these networks cancelling great shows. Maybe if we all ban together and stop watching anything new they will get the hint. Since they cannot leave the good shows alone and leave on the junk! More reality, more bullshit! So over it. About time to cancel television!!!

This was one of your best shows with a diverse color of actors. The writing was incredible the show was exciting once again fox jumped the gun and cancels a good show. Get it together Fox u guys are just lame no wonder ABC n other network kick your ass you guys don’t give a GREAT SHOW like Gang Related to find its audience. Gang Related was just as good if not BETTER then these other cop show like 24 NYPD Chicago PD etc etc etc. I hope another network realize how dumb fox is to drop Gang Related and pick it up.

Hi. This is one of the best Cop Series that I have seen in years. I think it tops The Shield which was also a great Cop Series. PLEASE, RUN SEASON TWO.

It should not have been canceled. What I find upsetting is that every time a show or series comes on that is predominantly Hispanic it never last a season. Why is that?? There was a show a few years back with jimmy smitts and my husband and I loved it and it was cancelled ass matter a fact I think he as done a couple that have been cancelled. I really home you bring this one back.

How can you cancel Gang Related. One of the best shows out there.
Just when I think that TV has some good shows to watch you get rid of the edgy ones. I like CSI and NCIS, but do we really need so many of the same show?
