Cooper and Steele will also have their issues on duty.
TV Guide has also shared new spoilers detailing what fans should expect for the start of season five. The site revealed the following:
"The new season begins with Officer Sherman receiving a medal for his bravery for shooting that pimp in the Season 4 finale. As Sherman continues to be recognized as the LAPD golden boy, look for his partnership with Sammy to become more and more strained. And Cooper has a new boyfriend — or at least a friend with benefits. Cooper's unwillingness to commit could endanger the former addict's sobriety."
Fans are buzzing about the return of this series on social media. One fan said the following on Twitter recently:
@Cudlitz did you lose weight? If so, you look good. If not, I must not be paying attention enough on #southland!
"Southland" will air season five on Channel 26 in Tempe on Wednesday nights.
