TNT has ordered 15 episodes for the fourth season of Rizzoli & Isles, which is slated to begin this summer.

About TNT's Rizzoli & Isles

TNT's Rizzoli & Isles was developed for television by executive producer Janet Tamaro from characters created by best-selling crime novelist Tess Gerritsen. In the series, Angie Harmon plays tough-as-nails Boston police detective Jane Rizzoli, while Sasha Alexander is the smart, impeccably dressed medical examiner Maura Isles. Despite being complete opposites, the two women share an offbeat chemistry and strong working relationship that lets them solve complex murder mysteries in the city of Boston.

Rizzoli & Isles also stars Lee Thompson Young as Detective Barry Frost, Jane's squeamish, computer-savvy partner; Bruce McGill as Sgt. Detective Vince Korsak, Jane's steady old-school Homicide Squad teammate; Jordan Bridges as Jane's brother, Frankie Jr., who dreams of becoming a detective like his sister; Brian Goodman as Lt. Detective Sean Cavanaugh, the head of the Boston Police Detective department; and Lorraine Bracco as Angela, Jane's handful of a mother.

Rizzoli & Isles is produced for TNT by Warner Horizon Television, with Janet Tamaro of Hurdler Productions, Bill Haber of Ostar Productions and Michael Katleman serving as executive producers.

After premiering in 2010 with what was at the time the biggest ad-supported series launch in cable history, Rizzoli & Isles went on to become one of cable's most popular series. In 2012, the third season of Rizzoli & Isles drew more than 7.5 million viewers to rank among the year's Top 3 original series on basic cable. It also ranked among the Top 15 original series with adults 25-54 (2.7 million).

Rizzoli & Isles has earned two Gracie Awards from the Alliance for Women in Media Foundation, one for Tamaro as writer/executive producer and a second to Harmon for her performance as Jane Rizzoli. Tamaro has also earned a Women's Image Network (WIN) Award and Prevention magazine's Healthy TV Award for her work on the show.
