"Rizzoli & Isles" Season 3 Set to Premiere Next Summer

By Garrett Godwin

TNT has proven to be the network that knows drama with female empowerment with Rizzoli & Isles, which has been renewed for a third season of 15 episodes.

Based on the popular book series by Dr. Tess Gerritsen, the show stars Angie Harmon and Sasha Alexander in the titular roles of Jane Rizzoli, a tough Boston detective, and Maura Isles, a feminine medical examiner. 

Crime-fighting BFFs since the days of Cagney & Lacey back in the 1980s, Rizzoli & Isles became one of the highest-rated new shows on cable last summer, and has continued to be watch every week by an average of over six million viewers in season two, which continues until September 12, and will return with new episodes later this year.

Season three is set to premiere next summer.

Rizzoli & Isles airs Mondays at 10p on TNT; season one is now available on DVD.
