The NBC police drama will be coming to an end following its third season.
The news was announced by the network on Wednesday. The ten-episode season will premiere June 17.
The series follows detective Harlee Santos (Lopez) who works for the not always law abiding Lieutenant Matt Wozniak (Ray Liotta). Also starring in the series are Drea de Matteo, Dayo Okeniyi, Vincent Laresca, Hampton Fluker and Sarah Jeffery.
“I have enjoyed producing and starring in this beautifully complicated world and playing such an empowering yet flawed character — a women, a detective, but, first and foremost, a mother,” Lopez said in a statement. “Now looking at it with a little distance, playing Harlee strengthened me and helped me grow into a more self-assured woman. It’s crazy how some parts permeate your soul and change you forever and for that I am grateful. We crafted a poetic three-season arc on how her journey ends, which is true redemption. The way only Harlee could have done it — the hard way, the road less traveled. I thank NBC and all the talented actors, writers, crew and producers for going on this journey with us!”
In a press release, NBC said “the storyline brings Lopez’s complex character to a fitting resolution.” Lopez also serves as executive producer on the series alongside showrunner Jack Orman.
Shades of Blue returns to its third and final season on June 17.
