LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - TNT has picked up freshman drama “Dark Blue” for a second season.

The network has ordered 10 more episodes of the cop drama starring Dylan McDermott and executive produced by Jerry Bruckheimer.

“Dark Blue” joins another recently renewed freshman TNT series, the Jada Pinkett Smith-starring medical drama “Hawthorne.” Both have performed respectably but have not become out-of-the gate hits like “The Closer.”

“Dark Blue,” which will return next year, will be joined by another gritty cop drama, “Southland,” which will make its debut on TNT in January, after a midseason run on NBC.

The news of “Dark Blue’”s renewal arrives on the day TNT saw strong ratings for the premiere of its last new series this year, the Ray Romano-starring “Men of a Certain Age.”
