‘Murder in the First’ Renewed for Second Season

As a season of a television show draws to a close, the number one question in the minds of fans and viewers is this: Will it be renewed for another season? For some shows, it seems as if it takes the network executives forever before they can decide on the fate of a television show. However, there are some shows that are lucky enough to be renewed, while some are renewed over and over again. With regards, however, to TNT’s “Murder in the First,” the show is renewed for another season. Read on to learn more about this story.

Deadline has reported that the freshman detective drama will be renewed for a second season. This news came just a little over a month after the show’s first season’s last episode aired, surprising fans and viewers with the swiftness of the network’s decision. It will premiere sometime in 2015 and will run for ten episodes long, just like its first season.


“Murder in the First” follows Terry English (Taye Diggs) and Hildy Mulligan (Kathleen Robinson) as two homicide detectives from San Francisco. They investigated two separate and unrelated cases. However, they soon realized that there was more than what it seems when they realize that their investigation is related, and the common factor between their cases is a Silicon Valley genius.

Unlike most crime procedural shows that usually follow a “case-for-the-week” format, this show is different as it is one of the few detective dramas in which only one major case is being investigated on for the entire season. However, in this case, it does require one entire season, or ten episodes, to put everything to rest, as the case involved is usually a very complex one that is not enough for the case-of-the-week formula.
