TV show description:      
This crime thriller explores the tensions on the U.S. – Mexico border. When an American judge known for her anti-immigration views is found dead on the bridge that connects El Paso and Juarez, Sonya Cross (Diane Kruger) from the El Paso Police Department must work with her Mexican counterpart from Chihuahua State Police, Marco Ruiz (Demian Bichir). Their goal is to catch a serial killer operating on both sides of the border.

Marco understands the slippery politics of Mexican law enforcement. While his police force slowly succumbs to the pressures and demands of the cartel, he’s one of the last good men in the department. He’s charming, but also cunning as he will do whatever it takes to get what he needs.

This doesn’t sit well with Sonya, who has Asperger’s and strictly follows rules — as well as protocol. Her candid and off-putting personality fuels an unforgiving drive for truth.

The case quickly pulls them both into a string of murders on the border, a scene already consumed by illegal immigration, drug trafficking, violence and prostitution.

Series Finale:     
Episode #26 — Jubilex
Marco’s loyalty is put to the ultimate test while Sonya attempts to tie up loose ends. Eleanor yearns for closure. Frye and Adriana land an insider source.
First aired: October 1, 2014.

    Again another show like Hannibal and Mr Robot that takes a very serious topic that is not nice and pretty and makes you think. And once again the show can’t get the ratings required to stay on air. It appears only sell out reality, dumb comedies and sports are the only ratings winners these days and the dumbing down of America is in effect just like the Beavis and Butt head creators predicted in their film Idiocracy.

    No, The Bridge should of never been cancelled
    Maybe networks should put out the word
    that TV series/shows are having difficulties..
    Don’t relay on what they assume that are low ratings. Let the viewers in on the problem.A warning. A new tool for networks and views.
    It is like the rug has pulled out from under you .You have to find out the show isn’t coming back by looking it up on the internet.
    Not fair in my books.

    I cannot believe The Bridge was cancelled. This show dealt with realistic things that are happening in our world. Actors great! Acting great! Characters were believable. Yet shows about hillbillys and swamp people and naked survival and building treehouses and honey booboo and all that mindless crap just keep on going. Its just wrong and sad. A show like The Bridge informs the public of the reality of the issues it addressed. Surely somebody in executive TVland can see this.
