at .

Shades of Blue is coming to an end. 

The NBC drama series will come to a close after its upcoming third season which is set to debut Sunday, June 17 at 10/9c. 

“I have enjoyed producing and starring in this beautifully complicated world and playing such an empowering yet flawed character – a woman, a detective but, first and foremost, a mother,” Lopez said in a statement confirming the news.

“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,” Lopez added.

“We crafted a poetic three-season arc on how her journey ends, which is true redemption. 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.”

"We are very proud that this remarkable series attracted iconic stars like the incomparable Jennifer Lopez and Ray Liotta to broadcast television,” said Lisa Katz, Co-President of Scripted Programming at NBC Entertainment.

"We are so grateful for all the hard work and dedication of Jack Orman and his incredible producers as well as the entire cast and crew.”

Shades of Blue focuses on a single mother named Harlee who works as a detective in New York City. The cast also includes Ray Liotta, Drea de Matteo, Warren Cole and Sarah Jeffery. 

The series debuted to strong ratings back in January 2016, but they quickly fell apart as the series went on.

Shades of Blue Season 2 averaged just 4.3 million viewers and a 0.8 rating among adults 18-49.

The show amassed substantial gains when DVR viewing was factored in, but it was still on the lower end of NBC's shows.
