If you’ve been holding your breath for this announcement since September, you can finally breathe a sigh of relief: USA Network has renewed “Graceland” for a third season, ordering another 13 episodes of the Jeff Eastin series. Although there is no current air date, it should hit U.S. TV screens once more in the summer of 2015.
USA Network’s president, Chris McCumber, addressed an elephant in the room in the season three announcement. “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,” he said, speaking specifically of Aaron Tveit’s Mike Warren. “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.”
Creator Jeff Eastin has a long-standing relationship with USA; his other show, “White Collar,” is currently airing its sixth and final season, after running on the network for five years. Speaking on behalf of that relationship, Nancy Cotton, senior VP of programming at Fox Television Studios, said, “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.'”
A hearty congrats to the cast, crew, and creatives of “Graceland” on this wonderful news!
