However, over the last few years, the cable network’s scripted dramas – Those Who Kill, The Glades, Bates Motel and Longmire – have also managed to catch the attention of viewers.
Based on a Danish TV series, Those Who Kill only lasted ten episodes earlier this year before ending its run, while crime drama The Glades finished off its fourth season with a cliffhanger; it was then surprisingly canceled. Now it seems A&E has decided to swing the cancellation axe yet again.

"It's great. It's super fast-paced, I'm doing a million things at once but it's been amazing. It really truly has been amazing. Everyone here is so warm and welcoming and I couldn't ask for anything better. Transportation »
