Rizzoli & Isles: TNT Series Returns for Season Two in July

Rizzoli & Isles returnsPolice detective Jane Rizzoli (Angie Harmon) and medical examiner Maura Isles (Sasha Alexander) are back on the trail of some of Boston’s most notorious criminals. The pair certainly share some quirky chemistry and their series, Rizzoli & Isles, is returning to TNT for season two on Monday, July 11th.

Featuring the talents of Harmon, Alexander, Jordan Bridges, Lee Thompson Young, Bruce McGill, and Lorraine Bracco, Rizzoli & Isles debuted last July. The premiere attracted a 1.6 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 7.55 million total viewers. The subsequent installments dropped a bit but the 10 episode season still managed to average a 1.5 rating in the demo and 6.86 million viewers. That’s quite good by TNT standards and is essentially double what some of the cable channel’s other shows attract.

Rizzoli & Isles was renewed for a second season of 13 episodes in July. The first 10 installments will run over the summer months. TNT hasn’t announced when they’ll air the remaining three episodes yet. If they follow a schedule similar to that of Leverage, they’ll end up debuting some time next winter.

What do you think? Are you glad to hear Rizzoli & Isles is returning? What do you like about the TNT series?

    Love the show….but can’t stand waiting until July for new episodes….seems like forever since I’ve seen the show. Hurry July, Hurry July……

    It’s about time it is coming back!!! I think the series is great, it’s a shame the netwok doesn’t agree. They keep pulling good shows off. It’s already hard to find something to watch.

    Love the show…read lots of the books. I’m ready for the next season. Hope it continues for quite a while. I really hate getting involved in a show, then “poof” they take it off the air.

    So glad to hear that this wonderful show is being renewed. There is so much junk on TV today that it’s a pleasure to see a clever and amusing one. Please keep it coming!

    Love the show! So glad it is coming back. Bravo TNT! Angie Harmon is terrific. I really enjoyed her last series as a medical examiner too. She has the perfect mix of drama and comedy.

      Yes, finally they are coming back. The two actors work very well together. Because of this show I went and bought all the Books based on these two characters. Way to Go TNT
