Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, Aaron Tveit and “Graceland” co-star Daniel Sunjata detailed that the third season of their USA Network series will return to what attracted fans in the first season: the relationship between the core group living at Graceland.
They detail what to expect in the third season – which premieres tonight on USA – including Charlie’s pregnancy storyline and even the overall tone. Check out an excerpt below before heading to the source for the full interview.
There is the big question about [Aaron’s] character. Does that make production any different? Have they gone to any extra lengths to keep that under wraps?
Aaron Tveit: They found a very creative way to tell the story and so I don’t really want to give too much away as far as that. There’s care to be had to not let certain things get out.
Is it hard having this huge elephant in the room when you’ve been promoting the show?
Daniel Sunjata: It’s difficult because you don’t want to get fired for accidentally giving a spoiler, but it also allows us to live in the realm of ambiguity when we talk about the show.
Tveit: I think we’re doing what we can; and you also have to accept that what you can’t control, you can’t control. The thing about this year too is we’re hopefully going back to more of what the show was in it’s first season, which is about the relationships between these people in the house instead of everything getting so spread out away from that. I think that, without people knowing what necessarily is coming next, they can know that hopefully the thing that they were able to relate to and got them hooked in the first place is what we’ll be going back to.

Aaron Tveit and Daniel Sunjata appeared on “The TODAY Show” this morning, in preparation for tonight’s season three premiere of “Graceland” on USA Network. They talk about the S2 cliffhanger (including Daniel jogging through the hospital with a broken foot) and, because “Graceland” has recently been added to Netflix’s catalogue, binge-watching television shows (Aaron mentioned he’ll be catching up on “Mad Men” and “House of Cards” soon). To view the video, please click on the image above.
Recently, Aaron Tveit spoke to Mike Simone at Men’s Fitness about “Graceland” and – unsurprisingly, considering the publication’s purpose – his fitness regime, including some opinions on the increasingly popular craze, CrossFit. He also details how he initially got into golf, which was introduced to him by his father. And for the men who are fans of Tveit, he doles out some advice on growing out facial hair and proper maintenance.
You can check out the video interview by clicking on the image above. The quote provided below – from the interview – is the best “game-changing advice” Aaron has received in life:
I think [from] my dad, when I got I job where I was about to leave school and start working; and it happened very fast. He told me not to be afraid to succeed. I think that mean, ‘Don’t back away from the opportunities you’re getting or are going to get.'”
The agents work to close out their ongoing cases and repair broken relationships. Briggs, meanwhile, is coerced into taking a high-risk undercover operation within the Armenian Mafia.

The first (teaser) trailer for the third season of “Graceland” has been released.

Not only that, but the theme for season three seems to be penance and working together again as the Graceland team. Intrigued? Watch it all unfold on USA Network when “Graceland” returns on June 25th.

The first poster for season three of “Graceland” has been released via Entertainment Weekly. If it kinda looks familiar, it’s because the shot was borrowed from the season two promo shoot — although, this time, Daniel Sunjata’s Paul Briggs is at the forefront. Don’t fret, though: Aaron Tveit has already confirmed that his character, Mike Warren, will be “there in some capacity.” “Graceland” returns to USA Network for its third season on June 25th.
