Starz announced today that Hightown is coming to an end after its upcoming third season. It has been over two years since the the drama wrapped its sophomore run, but the wait for the now-final season won't be long, as a January 26 premiere date has already been set.

The series follows National Marine Fisheries Services Officer Jackie Quiñones, whose carefree, booze-addled life in Cape Cod is upended when she discovers a dead body on the beach during a holiday weekend. This thrusts her into the center of a perilous opioid ring investigation, which she sets out to solve on her own amidst her personal journey to sobriety.

Season 3 finds Jackie off the wagon and off the force, but that doesn't stop her from careening into Cape Cod's dark underbelly to save a missing woman and a murdered sex worker. Meanwhile, her former colleagues Ray Abruzzo and Alan Santille are focused on taking down drug syndicates, which have attracted Shane Frawley, a gangster from Boston looking to cut himself in on the Cape's drug trade. Alliances are made and old loyalties are questioned in this beautiful but corrupt place where nothing is as it seems.
