Set in Miami, the series follows Rosewood, the city's most renowned private pathologist, as he works with Villa to solve East Miami's hardest cases.

The series became a surprise hit last season due in part to cross-promotion with Empire and a time slot that had it airing before the hit hip-hop drama.This fall, Rosewood moves to Thursday, airing before the network's new buzzed-about show Pitch.
