The Glades is a crime drama television series, created by Clifton Campbell, that aired on the A&E network for four seasons from July 11, 2010, to August 26, 2013.[1]

The police procedural show starred Matt Passmore as Jim Longworth, a Chicago police detective who becomes a state police detective in a seemingly sleepy, Florida Everglades community. His dramatic change of locales is driven by a desire for a simpler lifestyle, after false accusations of sleeping with his captain's wife threaten to ruin his career in Chicago. However, Longworth soon discovers that his new home town is more complex than meets the eye. A&E canceled the series after its season-four finale, effectively ending the series on a cliffhanger note (i.e., with several unresolved story lines that were clearly meant to be addressed in a fifth season—including Longworth's being shot just prior to his wedding by an unknown assailant, at the end of that episode).

Plot[edit]

The show's premise involves a Chicago detective taking a South Florida job with the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) after being falsely accused of sleeping with his captain's wife.[2] He assumes it will afford him a more relaxing lifestyle, but he finds things are more complicated than he had imagined.

Cast of characters[edit]

Episodes[edit]

A total of 49 episodes of The Glades were aired over four seasons.

Development and production[edit]

Originally titled Sugarloaf, the series was set to take place in the Tampa Bay metro area.[3] It is filmed in a former carpet warehouse in Pembroke Park, Florida and in the Hollywood and Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, metro area, making it one of the three current series, along with Burn Notice, and Retired at 35, to be filmed exclusively in the state.[4][5]

Matt Passmore was the first actor cast in the series; he plays the lead, Det. Jim Longworth.[6] Kiele Sanchez, Uriah Shelton, and Carlos Gómez were cast next, as Callie Cargill, Jeff Cargill, and Dr. Carlos Sanchez, respectively.[7] On February 25, 2010, The Glades was given a series order of 13 episodes.[8]

Though A&E advertises the show as a "CSI"-type series, it is more of a standard "police procedural", with forensics playing only a peripheral role in the stories. On September 13, 2010, A&E announced that the show had been renewed for a second season—the first of its original series to make it to a Season Two.[9] Season 2 of the series premiered on Sunday, June 5, 2011.[10] On October 18, 2011, The Glades was renewed for a third season, which premiered June 3, 2012.[11] With a five percent increase in viewership, A&E renewed The Glades for a fourth season.[12] On September 1, 2013, The Huffington Post reported that the A&E Network did not renew The Glades for the fifth season.[13]

Reception[edit]

The Glades debuted with 3.6 million viewers, breaking A&E's records for most-watched and highest-rated original drama series telecast ever according to Nielsen Fast Nationals numbers.[14] The show has been met with positive reviews, with an initial score of 64 out of 100 from Metacritic.[15]
