The Glades: Cancelled Next or Renewed for Season Five?

The Glades canceled or renewed for season five?Season four of The Glades concluded this week but the show hasn’t been renewed yet. Will it return for season five or will it be cancelled instead?

For those who haven’t seen it, The Glades follows a cocky Chicago detective (Matt Passmore) who moves to South Florida in hopes of finding a more relaxing way of life. He finds instead that he’s busier than ever. Others in the dramedy’s cast include Kiele Sanchez, Carlos G√≥mez, Uriah Shelton, Jordan Wall, and Michelle Hurd.

Season four of the show averaged 2.59 million viewers, down by 14% when compared to season three’s average (3.01 million). It’s the lowest-rated of A&E‘s three scripted dramas but hit a new high with its recent finale and an audience of 3.41 million.

While The Glades was the series to help A&E establish itself as a channel with scripted content, things aren’t looking too good for the show’s future. The ratings are down and the show is produced by Fox Television Studios so the cable channel doesn’t have a financial stake in its future.

According to Deadline, the show’s outlook isn’t bright but A&E hasn’t cancelled it yet.

After four seasons, there are 49 episodes of The Glades. That’s not enough for a syndication package but it might be close enough to give Fox incentive to make some kind of special deal to keep it going — either with A&E or another outlet. It would help if there were an appropriate Fox-owned channel but there isn’t.

For now, we’ll have to wait and see. If the show is cancelled, hopefully the producers will tell fans how the fourth season cliffhanger would have been resolved.

What do you think? Would you like to see a fifth season renewal or is it time for The Glades to be cancelled instead?

UPDATE: A&E has cancelled The Glades after four seasons.

I an furious that you have the nerve to cancel Glades to put some other garbage on. We are the reason for your success. The least you could do is not leave us with a cliffhanger. It just makes us not want to get involved with another show.


Genia September 23, 2014 at 6:46 am

Cancelling the Glades was a big mistake? The only reason I watched A & E!! What is wrong with you people??? Cannot believe you would let it end the way you did either!! Longmire SUCKS!! Glades was a far better show then it!! I am very disappointed with A&E and believe you have just lost another viewer because of this stupid decision. BRING BACK “THE GLADES”!!!


THoudashell October 2, 2014 at 11:15 pm

My Mom and I love The Glades and it would be a mistake!!!!! We have so very few shows on that are any good anymore and we need something like The Glades at least a special or something that will show us what happens next. Like who shot Jim, did they get married, did she love the house and etc…….please bring it back if you have cancelled it and if you have let us know when it will be back so we can watch it. Thanks, T
