Southland, the acclaimed fast-moving series that takes you inside the lives of Los Angeles cops, criminals, victims and their families, continues with more action and intense drama. Last season, veteran cop John Cooper grew more dependent on painkillers, jeopardizing his ability to properly train rookie Ben Sherman. Detective Lydia Adams, a seasoned officer, made steps to advance her personal life — but at the cost of losing her partner’s trust. And, in a shocking turn of events, gang detective Sammy Bryant was left reeling from the sudden and brutal murder of his partner, and decided to leave the taskforce and rejoin the ranks of uniformed cops. Now Bryant and Sherman are partnered together to patrol and protect the streets of L.A., where anything can — and does —happen. Guest stars this season include Lou Diamond Phillips (La Bamba), Lucy Liu (Charlie’s Angels) and, as Adams’ new partner, Dorian Missick (The Cape).
