NBC will be wrapping up a critically acclaimed drama series after one more season, with season three of “Shades of Blue” now set to premiere Sunday, June 17. The final season of the show, which stars Jennifer Lopez and Ray Liotta, will consist of 10 episodes.
NBC noted in an announcement today that the storyline “brings Lopez’s complex character to a fitting resolution. Her NBC relationship continues in June with the return of the second season of the explosive hit competition series ‘World of Dance’ amid a busy slate of film and television projects and her residency in Las Vegas.”
Last season “Shades of Blue” averaged a 1.4 rating in adults 18-49 and 7.0 million total viewers in “live plus seven day” figures from Nielsen Media Research, improving the Sunday 10 p.m. timeslot by +17% versus NBC’s year-earlier results in 18-49 (1.4 vs. 1.2) and by +1.9 million total viewers or +37% in total viewers (7.0 million vs. 5.1 million). The network noted that “Shades of Blue” won the slot among ABC, CBS and NBC in every key demographic — adults, men and women 18-34, 18-49 and 25-54.
