NBC announced today that Shades of Blue will be coming to an end after its long-awaited third season. It has been over a year since the cop drama was last renewed, and fans have been increasingly curious about its future.

The series stars Jennifer Lopez as a New York City detective and single mother 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.

The show was a decent performer for NBC during its first two seasons. Airing in the mid-season months, it consistently beat out its time slot competition in various key demographics. The reason for the decision to end the series is not known, though Lopez does have a variety of other projects on the go including her Las Vegas residency and other TV and film related endeavors.

For those wondering when to catch Shades of Blue's final run, the network has penciled in a premiere date of Sunday, June 17 to kick off its last 10 episodes. That date is later in the year than the premieres of Seasons 1 and 2, which bowed in January and March respectively.
