CHICAGO – The great “Southland” has been officially renewed for a third season, the first produced by TNT, that will air in January of 2011.

The news was broken by Entertainment Weekly, who quoted Michael Wright, executive vice president, head of programming for TNT, TBS, and Turner Classic Movies: “Southland is a challenging, visceral show that engages viewers with its immersive style, provocative storylines, and complex characters. These qualities have made Southland a favorite among critics and appointment viewing for an extremely loyal audience.

“Southland” stars Ben McKenzie, Michael Cudlitz, Regina King, Tom Everett Scott, Michael McGrady, Shawn Hatosy, Kevin Alejandro, and Arija Bareikis from creator John Wells.
