USA Network has renewed White Collar creator Jeff Eastin’s cop drama Graceland for a 13 episode third season, TVWise has learned.
Graceland follows Mike Warren, a rookie FBI agent who is assigned to join a team of agents from the FBI, DEA and Customs living together undercover and under one roof in a California beach house known as “Graceland.” The drama series is produced by Fox Television Studios and stars Daniel Sunjata, Aaron Tveit, Vanessa Ferlito, Brandon Jay McLaren, Manny Montana and Serinda Swan.
The renewal, while expected, will no doubt come as a relief to the fans given the cliff-hanger ending to the show’s second season. Across its sophomore run, Graceland has been averaging 2.6 million total viewers and 1.25 million viewers in the 18-49 demon in live+7. USA Network also noted that the show saw huge DVR lifts, with an average 112% increase in the demo from live+same day to live+7.
“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. “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.”
While Nancy Cotton, Fox Television Studios Senior Vice President of Programming, added: “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”.
