Those hoping for a miracle Southland pairing with The Closer, don’t hold your breath
Don’t get me wrong, anything can happen, but not before this summer as TNT has announced its plans to run the final 3 episodes of the current season of The Closer beginning December 7.
Reports are that if TNT picks Southland up, it would make one 13 episode season out of the 7 episodes from last season and the six unaired episodes from this season. I can definitely see that happening. But it seems unlikely to happen before summer. If a decision on whether to produce additional episodes has to wait that long, I don’t see it ever happening as those involved on the show will have moved on to other gigs.
