NBC announced today that mid-season series Shades of Blue has been renewed for a third season. The early pickup comes just two episodes into the cop drama's sophomore run, which has so far been performing well in its new Sunday night time slot.
Staring Jennifer Lopez and Ray Liotta, Shades of Blue follows a New York detective and single mother, played by Lopez, who is part of a tight-knit group of dirty cops. When the FBI pressures her to inform on her brothers in the precinct, she is forced to walk the line between love & loyalty, honor & betrayal - all to give her daughter the future she deserves.
Word is that Season 3 will consist of 10 episodes, which if true would be down from the 13 ordered in Seasons 1 and 2. Look for a return in early 2018.
