L.A.’s Finest Cancelled at Spectrum Network After Two Seasons
According to The Wrap, Spectrum Network has officially decided not to give Sony Pictures TV’s Bad Boys spinoff series L.A.’s Finest a third season renewal. This cancellation comes after over a month since the Jessica Alba and Gabrielle Union-led series had debuted its second season in early September.
In L.A.’s Finest, Syd Burnett (Gabrielle Union)—last seen in Miami taking down a drug cartel—has seemingly left her complicated past behind to become an LAPD detective. Now partnered with Nancy McKenna (Jessica Alba), a working mom with an equally complex history, Syd is forced to confront how much her unapologetic lifestyle may be masking a greater personal secret. Taking on the most dangerous criminals in Los Angeles while skirting the rules (and speed limits), Syd and McKenna become a force to be reckoned with—on the streets, and in each other’s lives.
Season 2 continued with Syd as she mourns the sudden loss of a friend and struggles to find answers, while McKenna (Jessica Alba) must deal with the aftermath of Izzy’s kidnapping and the rift it has left in her marriage. But when a powerful crime wave in Koreatown threatens to destroy the community, Syd, McKenna and the team must find those responsible before it’s too late.
The series also included Ernie Hudson as Joseph Burnett, Zack Gilford as Ben Walker, Duane Martin as Ben Baines, and Ryan McPartlin as Patrick McKenna.
L.A.’s Finest hailed from Sony Pictures TV, Jerry Bruckheimer Television, and 2.0 Entertainment. Pam Veasey (CSI:NY) was serving as co-showrunner of the series and was executive producing alongside Union, Alba, and writers Brandon Margolis and Brandon Sonnier (The Blacklist). Doug Belgrad (Peter Rabbit), Jerry Bruckheimer (Bad Boys), Jonathan Littman (CSI franchise), KristieAnne Reed (Lucifer), Jeff Gaspin (To Tell the Truth), Anton Cropper and Jeff Morrone (Atomic Blonde) were also set as executive producers.
