TNT Renews Real-Life Crime Series Cold Justice for Third Season

Show Finds Strong Fan Base on Friday Nights, with Big Audience Growth

TNT is ready to crack more unsolved cases as it orders a third season of its fascinating real-life crime series Cold Justice. The series, which recently reached the middle of its second season, has become a Friday night hit for TNT, delivering strong demo growth compared to season one. TNT’s renewal includes 10 episodes slated for the series’ third season. Season 2 of Cold Justice is currently airing Fridays at 9 p.m. (ET/PT). Season three is slated for early 2015 and will feature both new states and types of cases never seen on the show before.

Cold Justice follows former prosecutor Kelly Siegler and former crime-scene investigator Yolanda McClary as they travel to small towns around the country in order to look into murder cases that have lingered for years without answers or closure. Since the premiere of Cold Justice last September, Siegler and McClary have assisted local law enforcement in securing a total of 15 arrests, eight criminal indictments, four confessions, two guilty pleas and a 22-year prison sentence.

Cold Justice has averaged 2.3 million viewers in Live + 7 delivery so far this summer, a remarkable +24% increase over the show’s winter episodes. In key demos, Cold Justice is averaging 912,000 adults 25-54 (+12% vs. winter) and 676,000 adults 18-49. The show has found a solid fan base in its Friday night timeslot, growing its Live + Same Day demo deliveries by +13% among adults 18-49 and +4% among adults 25-54, compared to season one.

Cold Justice is produced for TNT by Wolf Reality and Magical Elves, with Emmy® winners Dick Wolf (Law & Order, Chicago Fire), Dan Cutforth & Jane Lipsitz (Top Chef, Time of Death) and Tom Thayer (Hitchcock, Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee), serving as executive producers.

    First of all, THANK YOU. A priceless avenue has been created for the unfortunate families and loved ones of crime victims.

    The REAL problem now, however, is that Kelly Siegler is ONE IN A MILLION. Even if there IS only one of her, I thank God for it. That said, I hope that my family/loved ones will never have a professional occasion to meet her. Personally? I’d love to meet her! She’s a real kick in the ass – in a fun way as a casual observer, and in the truest sense of the word for those dumb enough to come up against her!

    My final thoughts are this. What has really made an impression on me is the systematic approach to investigations via the use of the white board categorization of facts demonstrated by Siegler. I believe that by applying this method it becomes more clear through visualization exactly where any given investigation may be at any point in time.
    If this method is not a police department standard currently, it certainly should be. If this format were standardized, any investigator would be able to cross over to another investigation with the assurance that others have utilized the same protocol in their investigation. I should add, however, lthat it STILL takes the added benefit of multiple (great) minds putting that information to work, and expanding upon possible avenues of questioning.
    If this blueprint became a standard, more investigations would culminate sooner, thus avoiding the “cold” file.
