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?

This was cancelled?? Stupid ending, and now Passmore is playing a stupid role on Satisfaction, what a shame. A&E should be making good shows instead of stupid reality shows.

Its is Arts and Entertainment!

Just passing up this channel as well as many of my friends are doing.

Just in case I did not make myself clear: Clear this matter up and find a way to bring the fans a great ending to this hideous cliffhanger!

So very unfair to the viewers. I don’t even know why they would put a show on Netflix knowing that the final episode ended the way that it did and there was nothing more to give the viewers. So disappointed! Would have been an awesome ending if they had gone through with the marriage and Jim had brought Callie to the new house. Pooh on whoever’s idea it was to do such a stupid ending.
