An NBC drama series that recently premiered will be back for a second season. The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed reports that the network renewed “Shades of Blue,” the cop show starring Jennifer Lopez.
“The pickup comes after some aggressive time-shifting for the cop drama, which has been a welcome change for the network’s long-troubled 10 p.m. Thursday time slot that ‘Shades of Blue’ currently occupies,” THR reports. “Live-plus-3 returns for the first three episodes have the series averaging a 2.5 rating in adults 18-49 and 11.2 million viewers. Its latest live-plus-7 rating has it jumping a whopping 95 percent in the key demo.”
In announcing the renewal, NBC Entertainment President Jennifer Salke said: “We want to thank Jennifer, who is the hardest-working woman we know, for her incredible efforts as both the star and producer of this show, as well as our other amazing producers and cast for all their tireless work in creating one of the most compelling dramas on television today. We’re so excited to find out where this story will lead and have them raise the stakes even higher in what we know will be a fantastic second season.”
