The third (and final) season of ABC’s drama series Body of Proof will receive its UK premiere on UKTV’s Alibi channel on Tuesday July 16th at 9pm, it has been announced
Created by Christopher Murphey, Body of Proof follows Dr Megan Hunt and her colleagues as she performs her duties as a member of the Medical Examiner’s office for Philadelphia. The main cast for the first two seasons included Dana Delany, Nicholas Bishop, Jeri Ryan, John Carroll Lynch, Sonja Sohn, Geoffrey Arend, Windell Middlebrooks and Mary Mouser. However, after narrowly avoiding cancellation at the end of season 2, ABC & ABC Studios announced that the series would be revamped for its thirteen episode third season. That revamp saw the departure of regular cast members Nicholas Bishop, John Carroll Lynch and Sonja Sohn. To fill the void left by those characters, Mark Valley and Elyes Gabel joined the series as police detectives, with Valley playing a character named Tommy Sullivan who has a romantic history with Dr Hunt.
In the opening episode of the show’s third season, titled Abducted – Part 1, Megan returns to work months after Peter’s death, and she is surprised by a man from her past—Tommy Sullivan (Mark Valley), the new detective assigned to her case. Megan, along with Tommy and his rookie partner, Adam Schaeffer (Elyes Gabel), must stop a serial killer whose victims are young war veterans. As she learns more about the crime, the stakes rise when she gets a call from the killer — who is holding her teenage daughter, Lacey, hostage.
