Kiele Sanchez is heading back to the Florida Everglades…
The A&E Network has picked up its flagship drama series The Glades, which stars the 35-year-old Puerto Rican-French American actress, for a 13-episode fourth season.
The Glades, which also stars Carlos Gómez and Matt Passmore, was A&E’s first scripted series to get real traction with viewers and helped establish the network’s scripted brand.
In its third season, The Glades averaged 4.1 million total viewers for premiere episodes in Live+7, up 5% from Season 2.
Produced by 20th Century Fox Television Studios, the show centers on a Chicago detective taking a job with the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) in South Florida after being falsely accused of sleeping with his captain’s wife. He assumes it’ll afford him a more relaxing lifestyle, but he quickly finds that things are more complicated than he had imagined.
The fourth season of The Glades will premiere in 2013.
Sanchez previously starred in The WB‘s comedic ensemble drama, Related. She was cast as a co-star in the third season of the ABC Lost’s but her character was soon written out of the show. And she appeared in the 2007 ABC pilot Football Wives, which didn’t end up going to series.
