The Glades: Season Two Premieres in June on A&E

GladesJim Longworth (Matt Passmore) may sometimes be a difficult guy to work with but viewers certainly seem to love him. Almost immediately after The Glades was renewed for a second season, we started receiving emails and messages from people who wanted to know exactly when the TV show would return.

A&E had initially indicated that a summer return was likely but they’re bringing The Glades back even earlier than that. Season two of the TV series will kick off at 10pm on Sunday, June 5th.

Here’s the whole press release from A&E:



NEW YORK – April 21, 2011 – Season two of the hit A&E original scripted drama series “The Glades,” starring Matt Passmore, Kiele Sanchez, Carlos Gomez and Michelle Hurd premieres Sunday, June 5 at 10PM ET/PT. The second season will feature thirteen one-hour episodes.

In its first season, “The Glades” became the most-watched drama series in network history, averaging 3.1 million total viewers. These ratings propelled A&E to ad-supported cable’s number one network on Sunday nights among total viewers.

In “The Glades,” Passmore stars as Jim Longworth, an attractive and brilliant Chicago homicide detective with a reputation for being difficult. When his captain wrongfully accuses him of sleeping with his wife and shoots him, he is exiled and forced to relocate. He lands in the sleepy, middle-of-nowhere town of Palm Glade, outside of the Florida Everglades, where sunshine and golf are plentiful and crime is seemingly at a minimum. But Longworth soon finds out this town isn’t quite as idyllic as he originally thought, when murders keep piling up. Each case pulls Longworth off the golf course and reluctantly into his element as one of the sharpest homicide detectives to wear a badge.

In the season premiere, the daughter of a notorious Cuban mobster turns up dead in a Little Havana alley, and Longworth and the rest of the Florida Department of Law Enforcement must solve her murder to prevent an all-out war between two rival mob families. Meanwhile, Callie (Sanchez) prepares for her husband’s release from prison.

“The Glades” is produced by Fox Television Studios for A&E Network. The series executive producers are Clifton Campbell (“White Collar,” “Profiler,” “21 Jump Street”) for Innuendo Productions and Gary Randall (“Saving Grace”) for Grand Productions, Inc. The series is created by Clifton Campbell.

    Glades is got the best show and the best cast. I only have one problem. I think it is great that Jim Longsworth and Callie are to supposed to be together but there not getting together is dragging out way too long and they do not even seem like a couple at all, as they did when they first fell for each other.
    Bring them together soon!! They can still have lots of good Glades shows all the time with that show and cast…Callie can work with the detective and the coroner…something has to be done to bring them together again…they act like enemies now…OR do you think it best they just greak it off and keep it a good crime show…bring some other true love to Longsworth.
    Come on! You are driving us fans nuts with the Jim/Callie game.
