TNT Orders Third Season of ‘Cold Justice’

Solid ratings evidently have sparked a third-season renewal for TNT's unscripted docuseries.

TNT has ordered a 10-episode, third season of unscripted crime series Cold Justice. The network plans to launch the new campaign early next year.

Currently in its extended second season, Cold Justice, tracking a former prosecutor and ex-crime scene investigator as they trek the nation to resolve unsolved murder cases, has averaged 2.3 million total viewers, gauged on Nielsen live-plus-seven ratings. TNT extend the show's second season into the summer by ordering six additional installments.

TNT, whose performance had been questioned by Time Warner CEO Jeff Bewkes, is ad-supported cable's top performer this summer. The service won the primetime ratings in July, behind returning series Major Crimes and Rizzoli & Isles, as well as the launch of The Last Ship.
