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 Gómez, 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.

    Like I said the network did a big mistake and cancelling the show. If I was the show’s creator I would go to a different network. Like TNT for them to pick up the show for season five.

    Why would you guys cancel such a great show. I love the show alot. The show doing fine. I believe A&E did a big mistake. The creator of the show should go to a different network like TnT. My sure the network will pick up the show for season 5.

    Please don’t cancel “The Glades” I love that show, it was entertaining, funny, good plot, and had a romantic side to it.

    It is so sad when a show ends in a cliffhanger, we were all anticipating the wedding of Callie and Jim, they both deserved a happy ever after. Now with no season 5 it has left a bitter taste in our mouths…. That once a good show is on that you will cancel it… So sad. There is not much out there to watch. Please at least consider one more season with an out come of what happens to Jim and Callie and who pulled the trigger and bring them to justice…. PLEASE

    They can’t cancel the Glades !!!! We all want to know what happens and who shot Jim and why. Besides I’m with everyone else The Glades and Longmire are the best shows on A&E. The realality is shows insult our intellegances. You will defantly loose me as a veiwer

    Please don’t cancel this great show. I’ve watched it
    Since the beginning and I love it !! Renew for season 5 A lot
    Of faithful viewers will agree

    Please renew The Glades or at least let another network pick it up. It’s a get show, I was sold on it from the very beginning. I have watched it faithfully for 4 seasons and want to see it continued for season 5. I hate reality shows and think A&E airs far too many shows of Storage Wars and Duck Dynasty. The only two shows I watched on A&E that came close to competing with my regular shows on CBS was The Glades and Longmire. Please reconsider your plans of cancelling a great show and bring it back for season 5.
    Thank you,
    Linda Eden

    PLEASE PLEASE don’t cancel The Glades. If the studio or networks are claiming they’re having financial problems, get rid of the 2 new shows now airing on FOX or The Governors Wife (another reality nonsense) on A&E. Problem solved!!! Something’s got to give. Everyone wants another season. I WANT SEASONS!!!! This is a fabulously written show with a great storyline. Jim has great lines and delivery. The ending was terrible and not like the shows premise. I hope Jim had on protected wear and by the episodes end he and Callie are standing taking their vows. I don’t think it had anything to do with ratings. BRING BACK THE SHOW. I’m sure its not to late to get next season started.
