  2. Alienate says:

    Glades is one of my “Guilty Pleasures”
    A tad corny, but fun non the less.

  3. evelyn says:

    I love this show! Very excited it will be back. It’s light and fun–perfect for a Sunday evening.

  6. Suzanne says:

    I am very glad to hear THE GLADES will be back next summer. I have really enjoyed the show.

  7. Linda says:

    Really love this show especially the romance between Jim and Callie.

    Matt Passmore is fantastic!

    Thank you to A & E.

    • rebecca says:

      Yay! i love Jim & Callie too. Cannot wait for season 3 to begin. Yes, i am rushing to get to summer.. not looking forward to the winter in the Northeast.

      • carolinagirl says:

        Same here! I love Jim and Callie and I am so glad they are finally resolving the issues with her husband! That was starting to be a drag with Callie’s wishy-washy attitude but still one of my favorites. My 14-year old grandson absolutely loves the show.

  8. Erin says:

    Awesome!!! I love Glades – and I love seeing an Aussie doing well in the states!!

    • jj says:

      Yeah…cause that’s a rarity these days.

      Russell Crowe, Hugh Jackman, Nicole Kidman, Geoffrey Rush, Cate Blanchett, Naomi Watts, Heath Ledger, Anthony LaPalgia, Simon Baker, Sam Worthington, Abby Cornish, Liam Hemsworth, Chris Hemsworth, Guy Pearce, Joel Edgerton etc…

      Good point.

  9. Kristena says:

    I FLOVE THIS SHOW! It is one of the only TV programs my husband and I watch together. The actors are superb and the writing is always twisty and entertaining. So happy!

  10. Gretchen says:

    Hooray! Love The Glades and Matt Passmore.

  11. Eliza says:

    Yay! Just the other day I was thinking about this news; hoping it would get renewed.

    I enjoy this show a lot. And I love Matt Passmore & Kiele Sanchez together!

    Plus this show films @ my hometown of Ft. Lauderdale, FL. I support that they actually film in FL instead of ‘fake FL’ in LA (I’m looking at you Dexter).
    I love that about Burn Notice too! It films entirely in South Florida.

  12. Mikaylah says:

    I love The Glades! I always make sure to watch it. It has just the right amount of heart mixed in with crime procedural.

  13. Anna says:


  14. Steph says:

    Great! I really do like this show! However, am I the only one who doesn’t like Jim with Callie? She just became so whiney! They need to write her better next season. Just my opinion.

  15. K_Frem says:

    Yay! I love Matt Passmore and Kiele Sanchez! This show is a great summer watch! :)

  16. Lorie says:

    Woo hoo!!!

  17. Marge says:

    Glad To See A&E Came To Their Good Senses Renewal of Season 3 Of The Glades.See U Soon Matt..mwaah

  18. Dijea says:

    WOO HOO! So excited. I look forward to my Summer Shows!

  19. Tania says:

    Oh, btw, I also enjoy The Glades. I missed the first season as I came into it late. Fun, light summer watch. :)

  20. lorrie says:

    can’t wait for summer and the glades to begin again!!!just love the chemistry between jim and callie– hope nothing comes between the two–let’s just have an in-love couple work and live and get through life together like some of the rest of us!!!!!!

  21. Doris says:

    I love this show. Maybe we could get her father from Married to the Kellys, Sam Anderson, to guest on the show. He was also one of her fellow castaways on Lost, so we could go for the trifecta!

  22. Kat says:

    This is one of my very favorite shows. I’d never heard of Matt before The Glades and wonder why he hasn’t made it to American TV before now. I’m hoping the season opener will satisfy all of us with the first scene being the morning after they walked into Jim’s house together!!! I think most of us have been waiting 2 long years for them to get together.

  23. Bella says:

    Yay! I love this show! It’s one of my absolute favorites.

  24. Spikesgrl says:

    So glad to hear this. Love this show. There are so many shows to choose from during this summer now, it is great!!

  25. suzyku says:

    It’s about time! We really enjoy watching this show and (I) especially enjoy Matt Passmore! Hope they make his romantic interest less annoying in upcoming season because so far she’s lied, been closed off and generally treated him like dirt!

  26. sully says:

    great show. when can we expect it can’t wait.

  27. capedda says:

    AWESOME!Can’t wait for season 3!

  28. Suzanne says:

    So glad the show is coming back. I just hate to have to wait until next summer. It was mentioned that the show’s key demographics was 18 to 49. Well, I’m here to tell you this 65 year old loves this show. There are too many reality shows and we need more shows liked this for me.

  29. mary says:

    soooo glad it has been renewed. Cannot wait for its return !!!! great cast.

  30. seraphimrose says:

    I was thrilled to see that there will be a Season 3 of The Glades! Love Matt Passmore and all the actors in this show. They all have really great chemistry. Also, I never even heard of this show until I came across Season 1 in Netflix and watched that. Then I bought Season 2 on Amazon and just finished that! Sooo looking forward to Season 3!!

  31. Katia says:


  32. Kristie says:

    I agree with Suzanne as I am also 65 and love the show. I also agree with Suzyku about how Callie treated Jim with all the physical sluggings she gave him, especially when she was the one married and he wasn’t…. they can tone that down in season 3 (please)..I didn’t see the lst season until the 2nd season was starting and Time Warner had the whole 1st season on Free Demand (Entertainment)…I also like the entire supporting cast…there is very good chemistry with all envolved with the show..Thanks A&E for some good and light entertainment!! Wish I didn’t have to wait til next summer though. (sigh)

  33. Lulu says:

    I really like this show. There is just too much time between seasons.
    I think if they would show reruns for awhile, I would watch them. LOL

  34. Jim says:

    Fantastic, Have been looking for the release date for some time now. Will just have to watch season 1 and 2 online until this summer. Nice thing about that, no commercials. Thanks A & E

  35. Laurie says:

    The Glades is one of my FAVORITE shows. I never miss it. Am so excited it has been renewed for another season! Good job A&E!

  36. doris murray says:

    I like The Glades. 1st season great 2nd right in the dumper. The thing between Sam & Jim. How will they resolve it? Did anyone notice she dumped him? I’ll watch season 3 and if I see that the Sam charactor is back bye bye. She is a terrible actress at least in this role. The Jim character was so mean he reeked from his skunkiness. Why did the writers write him this way. Well I’ll try again.

  37. Mz.Passmore ;> says:

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE this show! I was so excited each week. Very happy that it will be back. And JIM!!!! Mmmmmmmmmm so HOOOOOOOTTTTT!

  38. dory says:

    Glad the show is renewed. Does anyone know why only 10 episodes or has that changed? Also has anyone seen any comments from MP or CC on the

  39. dory says:

    Sorry clicked wrong button.I was going to ask if anyone has seen any comments from mp or cc on season 2. they were sure quick enough to give the guest actress a big fanfare. OMG what backlash. Going through other message boards and blogs I have never seen such a hated character. I do believe an actor should be judged on performance alone. I did’nt watch the episodes she was in so I really can’t say. However,I saw comments about “shakey head, bobblehead” what was that about. Please I don’t mind critique on my comments. Somebody fill me in.I am not buying season 2 to see that.

  40. Jena says:

    Can’t wait for season 3. Hurry the hell up already! Summer??? Why so far away??? At least give us some reruns to hold us till the summer! Sheesh!

  41. Ann says:

    Agree with Jena — way too long to wait. There aren’t many shows to watch, especially one of this caliber. One gets sick of watching reruns of Law and Order :) Another good show was “Suits”, same thing happened with that show. C’mon, A&E, speed up the return!!!

  42. jeanne says:

    YES i have been waiting on edge hoping it would be renewd. It is one of the best new shows to come along in a long time, just wish it was a little earlier but i stay up and watch every episode. Thank you A&E.

  43. Sally says:

    Just what I wanted to hear that the Glades will be back! Cool beans.

  44. doryw says:

    I recently read an interview from kiele sanchez that Campbell told her that Jim was a rebound. Does this mean that season 1 was a lie. That the Callie character was just being used to assuage his broken heart? this creator sounds like a real chauvinist. He has all the power to manipulate the characters. Kiele must feel somewhat deceived. So the show goes on with a forty year old man who will always love an old ghost. Quite a concept. I always kind of suspected that there is an element of male superiority. As my dad would say “the fish rots from the head down”.

  45. mary says:

    Looking forward to season three…this is a show I really enjoy.
    SOOOOO glad it will be back.

  46. joyce says:
