‘L.A.’s Finest’ Canceled After Two Seasons on Spectrum


It’s a wrap for police drama L.A.’s Finest starring Gabrielle Union and Jessica Alba.

Spectrum Originals has canceled the series after two seasons, Variety reported Wednesday. The campy cop show debuted in 2019. It stars Union as Syd Burnett, a police detective with a complicated past who relocates to Los Angeles from Miami, and finds an odd-couple partner in Nancy McKenna, played by Alba.

Union revived her role as Syd from the 2003 film Bad Boys II.

Fox announced in May that it had acquired the broadcast rights to both seasons of the show. The first season began airing on the network in September, with season 2 debuting on Spectrum Originals earlier that same month.

Season 2 was originally scheduled to premiere in June, but was delayed following the protests that occurred as a result of the death of George Floyd at the hands of police. Due to the nature of L.A.’s Finest, which tends to portray police in the usual heroic manner that many TV series follow, Spectrum opted to hold off bringing the show back.

Now that the series has returned, Spectrum opted not to renew it for season 3.
