NBC has set a Sunday, June 17, 2018 at 10pm ET/PT premiere for the third season of the dramatic series Shades of Blue. The network also confirmed the cop drama starring Jennifer Lopez will end with the conclusion of season three. According to the official announcement, Shades of Blue season three will bring “Lopez’s complex character to a fitting resolution.”
The third and final season will consist of 10 one-hour episodes. In addition to Lopez, season three’s cast includes Ray Liotta (Goodfellas), Drea de Matteo (Sopranos, Sons of Anarchy), Dayo Okeniyi (Terminator: Genisys, Hunger Games), Vincent Laresca (The Aviator, Fast and Furious Tokyo Drift), Hampton Fluker (Aquarius, The Blind Side), and Sarah Jeffery (Rogue, Wayward Pines). Nick Wechsler (Revenge, Chicago P.D.) is a recurring guest star.
“I have enjoyed producing and starring in this beautifully complicated world and playing such an empowering yet flawed character – a women, a detective, but, first and foremost, a mother,” stated Lopez. “Now looking at it with a little distance, playing Harlee strengthened me and helped me grow into a more self-assured woman. It’s crazy how some parts permeate your soul and change you forever and for that I am grateful. We crafted a poetic three-season arc on how her journey ends, which is true redemption. The way only Harlee could have done it – the hard way, the road less traveled. I thank NBC and all the talented actors, writers, crew and producers for going on this journey with us!”
“We are very proud that this remarkable series attracted iconic stars like the incomparable Jennifer Lopez and Ray Liotta to broadcast television,” added Lisa Katz, Co-President, Scripted Programming, NBC Entertainment. “We are so grateful for all the hard work and dedication of Jack Orman and his incredible producers as well as the entire cast and crew.”
“This is one of our flagship shows and we’re excited to share the final chapter with viewers who will be on the edge of their seats discovering how Harlee’s story concludes. It has been a supreme pleasure to work with executive producers Jennifer Lopez, Jack Orman, Elaine Goldsmith-Thomas, Benny Medina, Ryan Seacrest and Nina Wass,” said Universal Television President Pearlena Igbokwe.
The Plot: 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.
