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?

I can’t believe they cancelled on such a cliffhanger!! Ack. So, I was thinking. When Jim got the call that Ray’s credit card had been used recently in Seattle, I think it was – the truth would be that Ray had given his credit card to someone to use while he traveled across country to murder Jim. OR the U.S. Marshall is the one who actually shoots him because what’s happening to Ray – his wife marrying someone else, kid having a new Dad, actually happened to him as a U.S. Marshall and he didn’t want to see Ray torn apart and lose his family – even though it’s Ray’s fault his family ended up where they are. Bring the glades back at least for one season to close out the story – you guys can’t leave us hanging like this!

Maybe end on a 90 minuet tie in with all questions being answered. similar to how the British do things. Allowing actors to develop charters and also do other work. Tieing actors to long running shows for years bores us and I am sure bores the actors also.
Sometimes we never see actors again because they are so type cast we just can’t see them as any other charter. Maybe a new format needs to be tried.
