Is Mike Warren alive? Is Sid going to take down Graceland? Can Johnny sway Carlito Solano? What ever happened to Lauren’s bedroom and spot on the chore wheel?!
All of the Graceland fans who have eagerly waited for the answers to these looming questions are retweeting with joy, because USA Network announced today that Graceland has been renewed for a third season!
Created by Jeff Eastin, Graceland is a 1-hour drama that creatively and uniquely merges crime, action, comedy, romance and suspense into a character-driven roller coaster ride.
The show explores the world of six (now maybe five…?) undercover agents who live together in a beach house in Southern California. The agents work collaboratively on cases, even though they represent three different agencies: FBI (Daniel Sunjata, Aaron Tveit, Vanessa Ferlito, and Manny Montana), DEA (Serinda Swan), and ICE (Brandon Jay McLaren). Season 2 threw some complicated antagonists into the mix (including a pair of rivaling siblings from a famed drug cartel), furthering the agents’ needs to protect their own secrets within the walls of Graceland. Based on the recent finale, it would seem as though Carmine Giovinazzo, Erik Valdez and Jamie Gray Hyder must also be returning for Season 3.
A third season was anticipated, especially because of the cliffhangers set-up in the season 2 finale of the show this past September, but “Gracelanders” became nervous when weeks went by with no announcement about the renewal. Many fans took to Twitter to express their desire for another season, resulting in the creation of a somewhat-comical #SaveMikeWarren hashtag campaign.
Graceland is incredibly interactive with its fans through their Graceland Sync page, providing behind-the-scenes looks at production while each episode airs live. The show’s website features extra character background information, a mini series, and downloadable web content. In addition, many Graceland actors and writers also take the time to live-tweet and communicate with the show’s fans via Twitter.
Specific dates for the third season have not yet been announced, but the premiere will likely air in early summer 2015.
