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?

Hopefully another network can revive this entertaining fun series. It is right up there with Bones and Castle. It is hard to find a good series with fun characters and interest value. Are they also responsible for cancelling The Finder!

Hopefully a smarter network can revive this entertaining fun series. It is right up there with Bones and Castle. Great characters. It hard to actually find a series worth watching. Can not believe they cancelled it. Are they also responsible foe cancelling The Finder!

I can’t trust nor do I like A&E anymore. They have done some real dumb stuff but this is one of the dumbest things they have done. How rude, cruel and unkind A&E is to their fans to leave them with a cliff hanger and then end the series. This was such a fun and entertaining series. I was going to say, “I just can’t believe A&E” but yes I can, they are doing their usual stuff and at the expense of the fans. This is truly a sad and bad choice.

Not sure what A and E is thinking…probably want to put on another reality show. A little light-hearted mystery program is almost too much thinking for their imagined fan base?

What the flip are you thinking?!!! Let’s me get this right, great show with a great following so let’s cancel it. Makes sense to me. Maybe there needs to be contracts canceled in other areas of A&E, lik e in the ivory tower.

Very, very disappointed, its your decision, a bad one, especially because it was a cliff hanger, I have enjoyed most programs on A&E, but cannot trust the network any longer. You guys have no consideration for the fans or anyone. Just plain sad.
