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.
It’s such a let down for a show to build up to such a height and then just quit. It was a funny/serious show and down to earth without all the cussing and sex and negative crap that most shows have.
I was dumb founded at the end of the show . I really wish they would have continue with the show. I’m sure I’m not the only one who would like to see it return.

Yes please, please, please, bring it back for at least one more season. What a terrible way to end a family fun show. I HATE the ended
I would love to see season five I think the show is great and would love to have seen Jim and Cali together married and happy! And besides it’s got to be another season the psychic said that Kelly would be his wife and one of the episodes but I do think that the other detective who is watching over Ray really is the one that knew where he was going either told Ray then Ray met him there and shot him. But please bring back on some other seasons of theGlade. I am very disappointed that you would cancel… Read more »
