‘L.A.’s Finest’ Cancelled After 2 Seasons By US Network Spectrum
It seems Spectrum has decided Gabrielle Union and Jessica Alba are no longer ‘L.A.’s Finest‘ as the US network cancels the police drama after two seasons.
Based in the universe of Jerry Bruckheimer’s ‘Bad Boys’ franchise, ‘LA’s Finest’ took us into the lives of former DEA agent, Syd Burnett (Gabrielle Union), who left her complicated past behind to join the LAPD, and detective Nancy McKenna (Jessica Alba), who juggled her demanding case-load with a rebellious teenage step-daughter. Together they took on the most dangerous criminals in Los Angeles and became a force to be reckoned with – both on the streets and in each other’s lives.
Spectrum has not given a reason for the cancellation. Could be is purely viewing figures vs. cost. Could be related to the pandemic. Could be due to protests against police violence in the US, which delayed the 2nd Season premiere… Could be a mix of all three things. We just don’t know at the moment.
Alongside Union and Alba, that cast included Zack Gilford as Ben Walker, Duane Martin as Ben Baines, Ryan McPartlin as Patrick McKenna, Sophie Reynolds as Isabel “Izzy” McKenna, and Ernie Hudson as Joseph Vaughn.
‘LA’s Finest’ was produced by Jerry Bruckheimer Television, and 2.0 Entertainment in association with Sony Pictures Television. Gabrielle Union and Jessica Alba executive produce alongside Jerry Bruckheimer (‘Bad Boys’), Jonathan Littman (‘CSI’ franchise), KristieAnne Reed (‘Lucifer’), Brandon Margolis (‘The Blacklist’), Brandon Sonnier (‘The Blacklist’), Pam Veasey (‘CSI:NY’), Doug Belgrad (‘Peter Rabbit’), Jeff Gaspin (‘To Tell the Truth’), and Jeff Morrone (‘Atomic Blonde’).
‘L.A.’s Finest‘ aired on Spectrum in the USA, and also on FOX who picked up Season 1 to plug some pandemic gaps in it’s “fall” schedule. The series aired on FOX UK on this side of the Atlantic.
