TNT's Hit Drama Murder in the First Returns June 26 for Third Season with a Thrilling New Crime

Taye Diggs & Kathleen Robertson Star in Powerful Crime Drama from Steven Bochco

This summer, TNT will once again take viewers deep inside a complex murder investigation with the return of the powerful crime drama Murder in the First. Created by 10-time Emmy® winner Steven Bochco and Eric Lodal, Murder in the First centers on a pair of San Francisco detectives – played by Taye Diggs (Private Practice) and Kathleen Robertson (Boss) – who investigate tough crimes that put the city on edge. Season 3 of Murder in the First is set to launch Sunday, June 26, at 10 p.m. (ET/PT) on TNT's linear, mobile and digital platforms. As with the first two seasons, TNT will make episodes of the third season available on-demand the day after they air and will continue to make them available until after the season is over, allowing viewers to catch up on past episodes at any time.

In the thrilling third season of Murder in the First, Homicide Inspectors Terry English (Diggs) and Hildy Mulligan (Robertson) are thrust into the tangled world of sports and celebrity when a pro-football player is murdered. As their investigation hits various twists and turns, the Inspectors are faced with their own, personal tribulations, compounding the cascading pressures of the case. Meanwhile, the city's prolific District Attorney has his pedal to the metal as he attempts to stay afloat after an unfortunate tragedy threatens his livelihood.

Joining the cast of Murder in the First this season are Corey Reynolds (The Closer) as Assistant District Attorney Martin Reardon, Michael Gaston (The Mentalist) as defense attorney Alfred Arkin and Sara Paxton (Twin Peaks) as Alicia Barnes. Returning series regulars include Raphael Sbarge (Once Upon a Time) and Lombardo Boyar (The Bernie Mac Show) as Homicide Inspectors David Molk and Edgar Navarro, Ian Anthony Dale (Hawaii Five-0) as Lt. Jim Koto, Currie Graham (Raising the Bar) as Chief Prosecutor Mario Siletti and Mimi Kirkland (Safe Haven) as Hildy's daughter, Louise.

Murder in the First is produced by TNT Originals, with Bochco serving as executive producer. The series launched as one of basic cable's Top 10 new series of 2014 and went on to reach more than 5.6 million viewers per episode across multiple platforms in its second season.
