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.

Here I was waiting anxiously for Season 5 of The Glades to start. When my husband and I didn’t see the usual promo’s we started to wonder. He checked it out and low and behold ther is to be NO 5th Season!! How can you leave Jim on the floor in the house he bought Cali and them not married. It is a travesty!! At the least, you could do a 2hr show finally for those of us who love Jim’s snarky attitude in law enforcement and crime solving. This at least would give us fans closure for the show. Please A & E do us a favor and give The Glades one last hurrah!!

I was so looking forward to a 5th Season of Glades. Please, please do not cancel it. There are so few good, entertaining series on TV these days (mostly, TV is awful – very little to choose from – stupid and dumb reality shows or really bad comedy series – we could sure do without the dumbing-down stuff). Glades has a little of everything, well written, interesting stories, a different twist on things, and excellent actors!

What? Is A&E crazy??? I just watched all 4 seasons and they’re going to leave Jim bleeding out on the floor? And Callie at the alter? Seriously some execs need to get their heads screwed on correctly and maybe their pride in check since it was really produced by Fox. Hey can Fox finish the series?????
