‘Graceland’ Renewed for Season 3 by USA Network

Dark drama from ”White Collar“ creator Jeff Eastin will return next year with 13-episode order

USA Network has ordered a third season of dark drama “Graceland.” It has given the summer series a 13-episode order.

From “White Collar” creator Jeff Eastin, “Graceland” follows a group of elusive undercover agents who live in a web of lies while operating under the same roof at a safe house on the beach.

“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,” USA Network president Chris McCumber said in a statement. “Jeff Eastin and the talented ensemble cast deliver on all levels, and Season 3 will undoubtedly continue to keep us on the edge of our seats.”

Produced for USA by Fox Television Studios, Season 2 delivered an Live + 7 day average of 2.6 million total viewers, 1.25 million in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic and 1.4 million in the network’s key demo Adults 25-54. The show thrived on DVR viewing with a 112 percent average increase in the ad demo.

“Graceland” stars Aaron Tveit, Daniel Sunjata, Brandon Jay McLaren, Manny Montana, Scottie Thompson, Serinda Swan and Vanessa Ferlito. Season 2’s finale aired Sept. 10 with a cliffhanger with Sid (Carmine Giovinazzo), the corrupt Head of the LAPD’s Gang Task Force, smothering a hospitalized Mike (Tveit) as Briggs (Sunjata) raced to try to save him.

“Graceland” joins three other recent renewals by USA Network: “Suits,” “Satisfaction” and “Royal Pains.”
