Jennifer Lopez and Ray Liotta are returning to NBC in their gritty cop drama, Shades of Blue. However, they’ll be airing a bit earlier in the week. The peacock network has announced that the second season of Shades of Blue will debut on Sunday, March 5th, at 10pm.
On the schedule, Shades of Blue will follow the network’s very popular unscripted series, Little Big Shots, at 8pm and their new legal drama, Chicago Justice, at 9pm.
Here’s NBC’s updated description for season two of Shades of Blue:
Harlee Santos (Jennifer Lopez) is a charismatic single mother and resourceful detective at the heart of a tight-knit crew of Brooklyn detectives, led by enigmatic Lt. Matt Wozniak (Ray Liotta) who often leads the team to step outside the limitations of the law in order to effectively protect their precinct and their own.
Harlee navigates her fractured relationship with Wozniak, as she struggles to conceal her deepest secret: she killed her daughter’s father. Following his discovery that Harlee collaborated with the FBI, Wozniak is confronted with a gut-wrenching dilemma of his own. The crew is under tight scrutiny from Stahl (Warren Kole) and the FBI as well as from Internal Affairs, in the form of a gregarious detective, Verco (guest star Dov Davidoff), who investigates the disappearance of one of their own. Meanwhile, a former member of their crew, Julia Ayres (guest star Anna Gunn), runs for mayor and her complex relationship with Harlee and Wozniak comes to the fore. Neither Harlee nor Wozniak anticipates that Ayres’ corrupt connections will trap them in a dangerous war with the Mafia.
The cast includes Drea de Matteo, Dayo Okeniyi, Vincent Laresca, Hampton Fluker, Sarah Jeffery and Gino Anthony Pesi.
During its first season “Shades of Blue” averaged a 2.3 rating in adults 18-49 and 9.9 million viewers overall in “live plus seven day” ratings from Nielsen Media Research, which made it NBC’s most-watched new Thursday series in 12 years.
Showrunner Jack Orman and Jennifer Lopez serve as executive producers along with Elaine Goldsmith-Thomas, Benny Medina, creator Adi Hasak, Ryan Seacrest and Nina Wass. “Shades of Blue” is a production of Universal Television, Nuyorican Productions, EGTV, Ryan Seacrest Productions and Jack Orman Productions.
What do you think? Are you a fan of the Shades of Blue TV show on NBC? Do you think season two will do well in a Sundays at 10pm timeslot?
Like many of the ecstatic fans before me, I can’t say enough positive things about why Shades of Blue is such a breath of fresh air on TV. Impressive line up of actors all seem to have been made for their roles, compelling story line and enough action and surprises to keep you hooked. Can wait for Season 2, so glad NBC got it right with this hit.
I watched all of Season one in the past 24 hrs. Once I began watching; I could not stop. I checked the internet for dearcthait had not, nor would not be cancelled. I’m beyond ecstatic with the stats, and am breathing a sigh of relief. I find myself totally engrossed in each episode of Shades of Blue, and craving more at each shows conclusion. Best new show that hooked me in right from the beginning in a lot of years gone by.
I loved Shades of Blue!!! Please don’t cancel this show. Too many reality programs. Jennifer Lopez and Ray Liotta were spectacular actors!
Yes yes yes!!! Can’t wait !!!
Thrilled to find out that Shades of Blue will be returning, loved it, and the last show of the season was amazing, can’t wait to see what happens next.
Loved it immediately & JL terrific, as well as the entire cast. I thought it would be back on in January so I originally read. Glad it was renewed, keep it comin!
Shades of blue is one of my favorite TV cop series and that is because of all the good actors and writers who are keeping us in suspense show after show. Keep this show alive and all the actors in place and this show will be a #1 hit. Sundays at 10pm does not matter to me or my wife, we love it any day.
Love Shades of blue. One of my favorite shows. Please bring it back.
Absolutely love this show!!! My family and I are totally hooked! Awesome acting by Jennifer and Ray!!! Best cop series ever!!
I think it was the best tv series in maybe the last 10yrs or so!! Please hurry up and bring it back. I’m not sure about Sunday at 10pm though. GREAT show though.
Just please bring it back. It’s is the best cop show on TV ..writers are terrific..it’s like reading a good book that you just can’t put down.
The show has a great storyline and fantastic acting so I find it difficult to understand why NBC seems hestitant to keep this show. Best thing this network has shown in years!
This is the best cop show to date!!!!!!!!! Can’t get enough, hate having to wait a whole week to see next episode!!! Hope it stays on the air for 15-20 more years!!!!!!!!!!
The show should have been cancelled last season. When it goes below a 1.17 this season, it better be cancelled.
