The Jennifer Lopez led drama will continue for at least another season.
Shades of Blue, NBC’s gritty drama starring Jennifer Lopez and Ray Liotta about corruption in the NYPD and the ramifications that ensue, has been renewed for a third season.
The announcement was made by Jennifer Salke, President, NBC Entertainment.
“We’re so hugely appreciative of everything Jennifer and Ray do, and know it is due to their dedication, as well as the hard work of our incredible cast and producers, that ‘Shades of Blue’ has so clearly and compellingly earned a third-season renewal,” Salke said.
Thus far in its second season, Shades of Blue is dominating the Sunday 10 p.m. ET hour among the ABC, CBS and NBC dramas, generating a +50% margin of victory in the timeslot in adult 18-49 rating.
In total viewers, Shades of Blue also wins decisively, averaging 5.0 million viewers in “live plus same day” ratings from Nielsen Media Research.
Harlee Santos (Jennifer Lopez) is a charismatic single mother and resourceful detective at the heart of a tight-knit crew of Brooklyn detectives, led by enigmatic Lt. Matt Wozniak (Ray Liotta) who often leads the team to step outside the limitations of the law in order to effectively protect their precinct and their own.
The cast also includes Drea de Matteo, Dayo Okeniyi, Vincent Laresca, Hampton Fluker, Sarah Jeffery and Gino Anthony Pesi.
