TNT has renewed Rizzoli & Isles for a 15-episode third season, the network announced Friday.
The second season of the ratings smash — which premiered last month to 8.6 million viewers — will continue through Sept. 12, take a fall break and come back for its final Season 2 episodes in November and December. Season 3 is expected to bow next summer.
"This summer, Rizzoli & Isles has proven that last year's record-breaking ratings were just the beginning of this show's remarkable track record," TNT boss Michael Wright said in a statement. "With a terrific cast, a top-notch production team and the kind of stories TNT fans crave, Rizzoli & Isles is poised to continue its success alongside blockbuster TNT series like The Closer and Falling Skies."
Rizzoli & Isles airs Mondays at 10/9c.
