Please, please, please renew this series. Actors and story lines are first rate. So sick of “reality” tv and the kardashians too!! Ratings mean nothing to loyal fans, it is the final product that counts.

The characterizations of the 2 detectives just blows me away!!acting is when u don’t recognize the real person when u c them!!
Imagine Joel being a Swedish actor!! On this show he comes off as a rebellious almost hip-hoppy kind of slouchy man but with keen intelligence. Absolutely fly working class American ! Same 4 enos. No glamour here. Pony tail & weird sweaters & the developing of a character that has some serious issues!!
Y oh y do we get stuck with the Kardashians when there is this kind of TALENT around !!
Don’t even think of cxlng this !!
