Today TNT have announced that they have renewed Rizzoli & Isles for a 4th season. Rizzoli & Isles on TNT is produced by Warner Horizon Television and is executive-produced by Janet Tamaro of Hurdler Productions and Bill Haber of Ostar Productions. Rizzoli & Isles has ranked as basic cable's number 1 returning scripted series, averaging an impressive 7.1 million viewers.
“Anchoring a new night in its third season, Rizzoli & Isles has proven itself to be a strong and enduring hit, not only in terms of the great storylines and performances, but also in terms of the show’s stellar ratings,” said Michael Wright, president, head of programming for TNT, TBS and Turner Classic Movies (TCM). “We’re thrilled that Rizzoli & Isles will continue to be a vital part of the TNT lineup.”
Rizzoli & Isles is currently airing on TNT, Tuesday at 9PM (ET/PT), with Angie Harmon and Sasha Alexander staring in Rizzoli & Isles, which was developed for television by executive producer Janet Tamaro from characters created by best-selling crime novelist Tess Gerritsen. In the series, Harmon plays Jane Rizzoli, a tough-as-nails Boston police detective, and Alexander is Maura Isles, a smart, impeccably dressed medical examiner from a privileged background. Despite being complete opposites, the two women share an offbeat chemistry and strong working relationship that lets them solve complex murder mysteries in the city of Boston.
The 4th season on Rizzoli & Isles will have 15 episodes and will air in 2013.
