Well, we are now aware that Gabrielle Union and Alba are officially off-duty, as their Spectrum Originals cop drama named, L.A.’s Finest has been formally canceled just after airing two seasons. It was a spin-off to Bad Boys, Gabrielle was reprising her role as Syd Barrett, who was working as a Los Angeles Police Department detective alongside her partner Nancy McKenna, which is played by Alba.
The supporting cast of the show includes Duane Martin and Zach Gilford, as their fellow detectives Ben Baines and Ben Walker, also known as The Bens, Ryan McPartlin as Patrick, Nancy’s husband, and Ernie Hudson as Joseph, Syd’s ex-cop father.
The series followed Syd Burnett (Gabrielle Union), who was last seen in Miami City taking down a drug cartel and left her complicated past to become an LAPD detective—paired with a new partner, Nancy McKenna (Alba), a working mom with an equally complex history.
L.A.’s Finest Will Not Have A Season 3! Why Was It Cancelled?
The show began life as an NBC pilot but did not get picked up for the 2018-2019 season. That was the moment when Spectrum Originals stepped in and ordered it to series, and then it was premiered in the month of May of the year 2019 as an exclusive for the subscribers of Spectrum. It was renewed for a second season in the following month by the Spectrum, but its planned return in the month of June of this year was delayed as the protests against the Police violence spread across the country.
Hence this caused a delay in the premiering of the second season, and it eventually premiered in the month of September with all the 13 episodes in the second season premiering at once. This series was also aired by Fox as a replacement for the programming delayed by the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
It made its debut on Fox last month with the episodes of the first season of the series currently airing on Mondays at 8/7c.
Pam Veasey alongside Margolis and Sonnier served as the executive producer/showrunner of the series. Gabrielle Union and Alba also served as the executive producers of the show alongside Doug Belgard of 2.0, Bruckheimer of JBTV, KristieAnne Reed and Jonathan Littman, as well as Jeff Morrone and Jeff Gaspin.
Also, Anton Cropper, who was the one behind the direction of the six episodes, including the pilot and the finale episode, was an executive producer of the series.
