The Glades: Cancelled by A&E, No Season Five

The Glades canceledAs expected A&E has cancelled The Glades after four seasons on the air. There won’t be a fifth season or wedding for Jim (Matt Passmore) and Callie (Kiele Sanchez).

The dramedy began in July 2010 and it became their first scripted series to last more than a season. The cancellation comes days after The Glades’ fourth season finale attracted 3.41 million viewers. This was the show’s most-watched episode since the series premiere which drew 3.55 million.

Unfortunately, the fourth season as a whole was down by 14% year-to-year and The Glades was the cable channel’s lowest-rated scripted series. It didn’t help that the show was also produced by Fox, an outside studio, so A&E didn’t have a financial stake in the show’s future.

Of course, the real losers are the fans. The fourth season ended on a cliffhanger with Jim being shot in the chest by an unknown assailant. Hopefully the producers will find a way to give faithful viewers an idea of what might have happened in season five.

What do you think? Are you sorry to hear that The Glades has been cancelled? How would you have resolved the cliffhanger? Should Jim and Callie be together?

Great series, like Bones with a bit of CSI Miami.. If you missed it, take the time to watch it. Jim and Callie are really cute. Enjoy the changes in direction this show likes to toss in, but beware of the cliffhanger ending. A& E did a big injustice to the viewers by ending this series.. Sure wish FOX, ABC, NBC or CBS would pick this one up. Could be another CSI or NCIS or BONES series. Why kill a series with such potential? IF a major network instead of a cable network had it would not be over. I guess AMAZON will be the only winner in this story.. as they have all four episodes on Prime. IF you want people to tune into TV these days… make it available for viewing anytime, by phone, I -pad or laptop… and free. Cable or DISH doesn’t cut it anymore. We are not the generation who sits in front of the TV each evening. We live life on the go and enjoy our little moments of TV between events. No more waiting for 1/4 of our lives with nothing to do. Take a moment to read a book, surf the web and watch your favorite shows between the kids drop offs and pick ups or after work before the next meeting. When your home turn off all of your devices and enjoy your family.. Something Jim and Callie really need to learn.

I just started watching the glades a week ago and have watched all four seasons in two weeks. I Didn’t realize it was canceled. I’m very disappointed there is no season five. They could have at least ended it properly. Not just leave you hanging! I would like a happy ending.

Loved the show so sorry it is cancelled. I didn’t think Jim and Callie were a good couple; something didn’t click between them for me.

Sorry the show is cancelled. It is one of my favorites. I really am not a fan of Jim and Callie. Actually, not a fan of Callie’s.
