'L.A.'s Finest': 'Bad Boys' TV Spinoff Canceled By Spectrum After 2 Seasons

October 15 2020

Spectrum has pulled the plug on L.A.'s Finest. The Bad Boys spinoff series starring Gabrielle Union and Jessica Alba dropped all episodes of its second season this summer.

Deadline exclusively reported this news. The second season was delayed as its original premiere date was in June, right in the middle of the protests against police brutality and the aftermath of George Floyd's murder. The season then dropped all at once on Sept. 9.

The first season of the show is airing on Fox, which added it to their fall schedule as many broadest networks were seeking content since they were unable to film new and returning shows as expected due to the pandemic.

L.A.'s Finest was first in development at NBC. After the network passed on it, the show's studio, Sony Pictures TV, was able to place it at Charter Communications' Spectrum as its first original program to be available for subscribers only.

In the series, Union reprised her Bad Boys character Special Agent Sydney "Syd" Burnett, the sister of Marcus Burnett (Martin Lawrence) and love interest for Mike Lowrey (Will Smith). Sydney is now working with Nancy McKenna (Alba), a working mother who has a complicated backstory.
