Love the show. I’m glad it’s coming back, hope they don’t cancel it. I also like THE GLADES, can’t wait for it to come back.

I lived in Texas for over 14 years. My favorite author is William Faulkner. ‘Memphis Beat’ is the most accurate portrayal of the South and Southerners I have ever seen on TV. Everything from the music, acting, directing and writing is a 101 course for anyone curious about the charm, dignity, foibles and culture of every Southern town I have lived in or visited. Bravo TNT!

Memphis Beat rocks, So glad its coming back. Finally a show with a family appeal with little to no violence. If the networks cancell this show at any point they should have their heads checked

Loved Jason Lee’s smooth wrap-up at the end of each show with some emotional case solved and some beautiful song to tie it all together. Can’t wait to get back to Memphis Beat!

I really, really hope this season has a season 4. The characters are so interesting and well defined and there is so little violence. I love it. I wish there were more than 10 new shows.

Yes, I am glad Memphis Beat is coming back in June. I watched all the reruns recently on TNT and really look forward to the show. I am one of the oldies who loves Elvis and really enjoy the characters.

So glad to hear M B is returning for a second season. The cast truly portrays a family and it’s daily dilemmas that can occur. Can’t wait to “hear” Jason “sing”..

We love Memphis Beat. All the other reviews are spot on. Is ther anything Jason Lee can’t do? I think he does “Suspicious Minds” even better than the King! We have to support great writing and character development like this. Also we need Jason to do an album of Elvis covers.

My husband and I love Memphis Beat. The music is great, the cast is one of the best on TV, and the writing is different from anything else around. It paints Memphis like we remember it, old and funky. What a great show. Wish there were more than 10 this year.
