Series will conclude following its third and final season
"Shades of Blue," which stars Jennifer Lopez and Ray Liotta, will premiere its 10-episode third season on Sunday, June 17 (10 p.m. ET/PT).
The critically acclaimed drama will conclude after three seasons as the storyline brings Lopez's complex character to a fitting resolution. Her NBC relationship continues in June with the return of the second season of the hit competition series "World of Dance," amid her busy slate of film and television projects and residency in Las Vegas.
"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," Lopez said. "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," said 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."
Last season, "Shades of Blue" averaged a 1.4 rating in adults 18-49 and 7.0 million viewers overall in "live plus seven day" figures from Nielsen Media Research, to improve is Sunday 10 p.m. timeslot by 17 percent versus NBC's year-earlier results in 18-49 (1.4 vs. 1.2) and by 1.9 million viewers overall or 37 percent in total viewers (7.0 million vs. 5.1 million). "Shades of Blue" won the slot among ABC, CBS and NBC in every key demographic - adults, men and women 18-34, 18-49 and 25-54.
Harlee Santos (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 (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 includes Drea de Matteo, Dayo Okeniyi, Vincent Laresca, Hampton Fluker and Sarah Jeffery. Nick Wechsler is a recurring guest star.
