By Liz Calvario
It's time to say goodbye to Detective Harlee Santos.
Shades of Blue, starring Jennifer Lopez and Ray Liotta, will officially end after its third season, NBC confirmed on Wednesday. The crime drama will conclude Santos' storyline with a 10-episode season three that will premiere Sunday, June 17.
"I have enjoyed producing and starring in this beautifully complicated world and playing such an empowering yet flawed character -- a women, a detective, but, first and foremost, a mother,” Lopez expressed in a statement. "Now looking at it with a little distance, playing Harlee strengthened me and helped me grow into a more self-assured woman. It's crazy how some parts permeate your soul and change you forever and for that I am grateful."

"We crafted a poetic three-season arc on how her journey ends, which is true redemption," she continued. "The way only Harlee could have done it – the hard way, the road less traveled. I thank NBC and all the talented actors, writers, crew and producers for going on this journey with us!”
The 48-year-old entertainer also took to Instagram to share a pic of herself as Santos, captioning the shot, "Get Ready For Harlee And The Crew...#Shades3 #June17th #ShadesOfBlue."
