USA Network’s Graceland has been given a green light for a third season, it was revealed today.
News of the 13 episode third season comes on the heels of similar announcements for Suits, Satisfaction and Royal Pains, with the latter receiving a two season renewal.
“This season of Graceland took viewers on a wild ride with unexpected character twists, and a heart-stopping cliffhanger that left a lead character’s fate in question,” said USA Network President Chris McCumber today in a statement. “Jeff Eastin and the talented ensemble cast deliver on all levels, and season three will undoubtedly continue to keep us on the edge of our seats.”
Said Fox Television Studios’ Senior Vice President, Programming, Nancy Cotton, “FTVS truly values the long and fruitful relationship we have with Jeff and USA. We could not be more excited to bring USA viewers another thrilling season of Graceland.”
Graceland’s sophomore season followed the dangerous lives of six undercover federal agents living together in a government-seized Southern California beachfront house. These FBI, DEA and ICE agents, whose lies are their lives, struggled to maintain a sense of normalcy. This was especially challenging when former FBI rookie, Mike Warren (Aaron Tveit, Les Miserables) returned to “Graceland” to run point on a dangerous mission against the cartel.
Briggs (Daniel Sunjata, Rescue Me), still concerned about the missing recording that implicated him in a murder, attempted to clean up his life and repair his relationships. The season ended with a stunning cliffhanger: Sid (Carmine Giovinazzo) smothering a hospitalized Mike as Briggs raced to try to save him from Sid’s deadly hands.
