L.A.’s Finest has been renewed for a second season a month after its premiere.
Stars Gabrielle Union and Jessica Alba confirmed that Spectrum Originals has picked up the cop show for another season Friday at the opening night of the 59th Monte Carlo Television Festival.
The Bad Boys spinoff stars Union as a police detective (a revival of the Syd Burnett character she played in the 2003’s Bad Boys II) who is teamed up with a new partner, Nancy McKenna (Alba). The two soon become a force to be reckoned with.
“We’re thrilled L.A.’s Finest has resonated with our subscribers in such a major way. When I first saw the pilot — a show about two strong women learning to trust and support each other and still getting into plenty of trouble — I knew I’d follow them anywhere,” said Katherine Pope, head of Spectrum Originals. “Kudos to Gabrielle and Jessica, as stars and executive producers, along with creators Brandon Sonnier and Brandon Margolis and everyone else involved, for helping us launch our first original series and making the decision to greenlight a second season incredibly easy.”
“We are overwhelmed by the audience’s response to L.A.’s Finest,” said SPT President Jeff Frost. ”Gabrielle and Jessica are brilliant together and our incredible showrunners Brandon Sonnier, Brandon Margolis and Pam Veasey did an amazing job of crafting an action-packed and riveting season one. We can’t wait to work again with this amazing team of prolific and talented executive producers and dive into the next chapter for Syd and Nancy.”
The last two episodes of Season One aired yesterday.
