If you enjoyed binging LA’s Finest on Netflix, you’re probably wondering if the show will get renewed for Season 3. However, unless a miracle happens, the popular cop show, starring Gabrielle Union and Jessica Alba, won’t be coming back. Read on to find out what we know so far.

LA’s Finest on Netflix

For anyone that hasn’t watched the show, LA’s Finest is a spinoff in the Sony Bad Boys universe. The series follows Syd (Gabrielle Union) and Nancy (Jessica Alba) as two police officers. In the storyline, they go up against the drug crime of Los Angeles.

So far, not everyone has been able to watch Season 1 and Season 2 of LA’s Finest, as it has only aired on Netflix Canada and Netflix US so far. However, reportedly, Netflix UK and several others will probably get the series in July.

Both seasons of LA’s Finest were originally on Spectrum. Since then, things have changed, as that platform has mostly moved away from original programming. However, Season 1 dropped on Netflix US in January 2021, with Season 2 added in June 2021.

Admittedly, Season 2 did have a very scattered release. There were delays due to the ongoing events of 2020 involving police violence in the US. Since then, due to the show’s main topic and the fact that Spectrum Originals isn’t going ahead, LA’s Finest was officially canceled in October 2020.

Could Netflix revive the show?

When it comes to TV shows and Netflix, anything is possible, but in this case, it is highly unlikely that LA’s Finest will return.

Over the last couple of years, rumors have swirled that Netflix could revive several Sony Television Pictures shows. Among the rumored revivals was Hannibal,  which was later dropped and Community. The main reason Netflix snags shows like LA’s Finest is that Sony is one of the few distributors who do still license shows.

However, with a cast as huge as LA’s Finest, reviving a series takes a huge amount of capital. Meanwhile, Gabrielle Union is currently working on several projects, including Cheaper by the Dozen Disney+. As for Jessica Alba, she is currently busy with Trigger Warning for Netflix. Trying to get those two back together would be almost impossible.

As reported by What’s on Netflix, Season 1 of the show did particularly well on the top 10 list of the streaming channel’s shows. Regrettably, this doesn’t matter, as it is highly unlikely that LA’s Finest will see Season 3. It doesn’t matter that fans loved the action between their two favorite ladies, folks. Unfortunately, fans just need to face the fact that the show is officially canceled.

Haven’t watched LA’s Finest?

For those who haven’t watched the show, Season 1 and Season 2 are still available for viewing. Both seasons are definitely worth an extended binge this weekend on Netflix US and Canada. You just have to realize that what you see is all that you are going to get. Meanwhile, you can catch the trailer for Season 2 below.

  1. This is bull crap. Why cancel LA’s Finest just cuz of what happen in 2020. It is a tv show that was very good. One of the best shows ever. You can at least do a season 3 and make it the final season instead of leaving it open like that finish the story line. Why do yall keep canceling all the good shows and not the creaky ones?

  2. I understand the show is made in the US however it is made for people all around the world and putting a pause on everything because the US is going through some things and the perception of it might not be best in the US is preposterous. BUt maybe I’m being self indulgent.

  3. I seriously binged the first season with my sisters in a few days then the second one on my own in like two days. How can you not continue this amazing show after that cliffhanger???? It is so entertaining and left me wanting more after every episode. Broke my heart to see that season 3 won’t be continued after searching up for the third season. I’ve never wanted to continue watching a show so bad until L.A.’s Finest. So disappointed. 🙁

  4. Disappointed LA’S FINEST is unfinished. Such a great series. Why watch a series only to have no ending. Happens way too often. The only solution is to look online to see if a series is completed before even thinking of watching it. Otherwise it’s a waste of time. ANNOYED BEYOND WORDS
