L.A.’s Finest Renewed for Season Two


Spectrum Originals has greenlit a second season of L.A.’s Finest, from the universe of the Jerry Bruckheimer Bad Boys franchise.

The series stars Gabrielle Union and Jessica Alba, who also serve as executive producers. All 13 episodes from season one of the Sony Pictures Television-produced drama will be available on-demand for free exclusively to Spectrum’s subscribers following today’s finale.

Season one centers on Syd Burnett (Union), who was last seen in Miami taking down a drug cartel and leaving her complicated past to become an LAPD detective. Paired with a new partner—Nancy McKenna (Alba), a working mom with an equally complex history—Syd is forced to confront how her unapologetic lifestyle was masking a greater personal secret.

“We’re thrilled L.A.’s Finest has resonated with our subscribers in such a major way,” said Katherine Pope, head of Spectrum Originals. “When I first saw the pilot—a show about two strong women learning to trust and support each other and still getting into plenty of trouble—I knew I’d follow them anywhere. Kudos to Gabrielle and Jessica, as stars and executive producers, along with creators Brandon Sonnier and Brandon Margolis and everyone else involved, for helping us launch our first original series and making the decision to greenlight a second season incredibly easy.”

“We are overwhelmed by the audience’s response to L.A.’s Finest,” said Sony Pictures Television President Jeff Frost. ”Gabrielle and Jessica are brilliant together and our incredible showrunners Brandon Sonnier, Brandon Margolis and Pam Veasey did an amazing job of crafting an action-packed and riveting season one. We can’t wait to work again with this amazing team of prolific and talented executive producers and dive into the next chapter for Syd and Nancy.”
