Season two of "Southland
" has been scrapped before it started, according to Variety.com
. The show was scheduled to return Oct. 23.
NBC did not comment on the reasons for the cancellation, but insiders say the dark nature of the cop drama was a factor. "Southland" stars Michael Cudlitz
and Ben McKenzie
as L.A. police officers.
Executive producer John Wells said in a statement, "I'm disappointed that NBC no longer has the time periods available to support the kind of critically acclaimed series that was for so many years a hallmark of their success. We remain extremely proud of 'Southland' and are actively looking for another home for the series."
