HawthoRNe: Season Three of TNT Series Coming in June

Hawthorne season threeTNT’s medical drama, HawthoRNe, which stars Jada Pinkett-Smith, will be back for a third season this spring. The first of 10 new episodes will debut on Tuesday, June 14th — paired with the kick off of the second season of Memphis Beat.

Pinkett-Smith stars as Christina Hawthorne, the impassioned Chief Nursing Officer at James River Hospital. Michael Vartan also stars and Marc Anthony has just been added as a series regular. Anthony guest-starred last season as police detective Nick Renata and his role has been expanded.

HawthoRNe debuted in June of 2009 with a 1.2 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 3.8 million viewers. The numbers came down from there but were still strong enough to merit a renewal. Airing last summer, season two averaged a 0.9 rating in the demo and 3.09 million viewers.

The series was renewed for season three back in mid-September for another round of 10 episodes.

What do you think? Are you glad that HawthoRNe’s coming back? Looking forward to Anthony becoming a regular?

    This show is ridiculous. I cant believe it made it on the air much less has lasted 3 seasons. Here you have a nurse who has all the answers and runs all the show and sorry, its just not credible. Oh and you imposters logging on saying you’re nurses? With your atrocious spelling and clear ignorance of hospital procedures, you arent fooling anyone.

    I am SOOOOOOO happy this show is coming back!!!! I too am a nurse!! I think the writers should consult with health care workers on some situations to be more accurate in acts of “treatments” and “patient care”.

    Love the show. Glad it’s returning. Great to see nurses with compassion and don’t mind speaking out when needed. I’m not a nurse but I do know that nurses spend much more time with the patients than doctors and that they also have a life (after nursing).

    I am a head nurse and we do have to sometimes tell doctors what to do. We spend more time with the patients and it is our duty to be patient advocates. We are not doctor’s asistants and are bound by law to act in the best interrai of the patient. So glad to see a show portraying nurses having a mind of their own.

      WELL SAID,I AM ALSO A NURSE IN THE INTENSIVE CARE UNIT.I TOTALLY AGREE WITH YOU.I REALLY APPRECITE A DOCTER THAT TAKES TIME TO LISTEN TO MY OPINIONS,QUESTIONS AND CONCERNS REGARDING A PATIENT.AND TO LISTEN TO THE PATIENT AS WELL.

    Never was fond of the show…
    The first time the “Nurse” started telling the Doctors how to treat patients just reinforced my opinion.
    And then for the writers to miss obvious things in season 2??? Wow…
    Case in point, the evil nurse played very well by Ex Rosanne daughter… When she stole the parents camera with all the pics of the dying child on it and erased it. Well EVERYONE and my not to computer literate child KNOWS that you can recover pictures on the memory cards.
    That was the point in which goody good nurse should have known how to do so and saved the day.
