It’s official. COPS L.A.C. is no more.
Just a small line appeared in today’s Australian newspaper reported that COPS L.A.C. has been “dropped” by Nine.
It has been widely expected that the police drama starring Kate Ritchie would not return after disappointing ratings and reviews.
A Nine spokesperson confirmed to TV Tonight today that the show would not be returning.
Nine does have 22 episodes of Rescue Special Ops and 13 eps for the final season of Sea Patrol to come next year, along with several Telemovies. It may yet reveal further drama projects at its 2011 launch in early December.
Other networks recently reviewed their two police dramas. Seven is yet to officially clarify any production return for City Homicide. Unofficially, the outlook is grim.
Brighter news for Rush fans with 13 new episodes confirmed for TEN next year.
SBS also has a new series of East West 101.
