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.

    please, PLEASE…do not cancel this show….of all the recent and current police/drama shows out there the glades has a great balance of fun, mayhem and mystery-without too much gore OR predictability…that’s rare…to be able to sit with my 13 years old son, 19 years old daughter, and watch an entire show without being sick to my stomache or embarrassed is something to be thankful for…it’s hard to find a show for all three ages that is satisfying and something to look forward to each and every week ! I’m sure there are a lot of parents out there who feel the same…and damn!! pardon me but we’ve waited what seems like forever for jim and kal to finally say yes!!! i swear i’ll die if you don’t bring it back for season five.

    Please bring back The Glades. Great show!
    Reality shows are so useless. We want to be entertained not disgusted when watching those so called reality shows.
