Exciting news! Angie Tribeca has been renewed for season four!

‘Angie Tribeca’ Renewed For Season 4 On TBS – TCA

“Tribeca, Geils — get the hell in here!” Prepare to hear that oft-shouted line from Captain Atkins at least a few more times because TBS has greenlighted a 10-episode fourth season of Angie Tribeca for 2018. The cable network also said at TCA that Bobby Cannavale is joining the cop spoof “in a shameless attempt to grab some much-deserved awards attention.” No word on his character.

The series created by EPs Nancy and Steve Carell subscribes to the deadpan, anything-for-a-laugh doctrine championed by the likes of Sledge Hammer-via-Police Squad!-via-Airplane! — with an eye-wink to Mel Brooks — featuring zany characters including a German shepherd who’s a full-on detective. (Paw patrol?) Rashida Jones stars as the lone-wolf title detective, Hayes MacArthur plays her LAPD partner Jay Geils, Jere Burns is the so-stock-it’s-perfect precinct captain, Deon Cole is a fellow detective, and Andree Vermeulen is the, er, quirky medical examiner Dr. Scholls.

TBS notes that the series has cuffed back-to-back ratings growth in the demo: up 13% for Season 2 and 8% for the third shift that wrapped June 12. Since its premiere in early 2016, the series has drawn an audience that’s four years younger that TBS’ median age.

The show was renewed for Season 2 ahead of its launch, so the network opted to air two seasons in calendar 2016. There was a scant six months between the premieres of Season 1 (January 17) and Season 2 (June 6). The 10-episode freshman year aired in full as a 25-hour marathon.

As for Season 4, how about a elbow-to-rib tribute to J. Geils — the founding guitarist of the band that bears his name, who died in April? Maybe just a quick freeze frame at the end? While TBS executives ignore ponder that, here’s a little teaser for Angie Tribeca 2018:

Accolade To Be Presented At 8th Annual Los Angeles Golf Classic On Monday, June 12th
LOS ANGELES (June 6, 2017) – The SAG-AFTRA Foundation announced today that Emmy®-nominated actress Rashida Jones will receive its Actors Inspiration Award, an honor recognizing artists who give back to the community by championing worthy philanthropic causes which make a difference in the world. On Monday, June 12th, the award will be presented to Ms. Jones at the Foundation’s 8th Annual Los Angeles Golf Classic, an event benefiting its assistance and children’s literacy programs.

Rashida Jones is an actor, director, producer, screenwriter, musician and activist. Her philanthropy includes work with the International Rescue Committee, traveling around the world as an advocate for the nonprofit which delivers lifesaving care to people fleeing conflict and natural disaster; serving on the board and as a celebrity ambassador for Peace First, a youth organization that encourages the development of the world’s next generation of peacemakers; and supporting Oceana in its mission to protect and restore the world’s oceans. In addition, she lends her voice to several other important charities including Amnesty International, the Elton John AIDS Foundation, and The Trevor Project. Ms. Jones is also a supporter of the SAG-AFTRA Foundation’s online children’s literacy program Storyline Online (storylineonline.net) and will be filming a new video for Storyline Online following the Actors Inspiration Award ceremony. She will join the ranks of actors Viola Davis, Lily Tomlin and Chris Pine as Storyline Online advocates. Rashida Jones’ commitment to supporting vulnerable populations around the world, the environment, and children’s literacy embodies the spirit of the Actors Inspiration Award.

“We are excited to present Rashida Jones with our Actors Inspiration Award and honor her tireless dedication for tackling issues around global poverty, improving health outcomes for people battling AIDS and cancer, and for using her artistic platform to support several important charities, including our very own children’s literacy initiative Storyline Online,” said SAG-AFTRA Foundation President JoBeth Williams.  “Rashida’s generosity and commitment to giving back to the global community is an inspiration, and we are proud and grateful she will accept this honor.”

Previous recipients of the SAG-AFTRA Foundation’s Actors Inspiration Award are Sofia Vergara, Kerry Washington and Leonardo DiCaprio, who were recognized for their philanthropic work.

Ms. Jones currently stars in the hit TBS series Angie Tribeca where she plays the title role, in addition to working behind the camera as executive producer and a director of some episodes. A multi-hyphenate in the entertainment space, this past year she was nominated for an NAACP Image Award for co-writing the first episode of Netflix’s third season of Black Mirror. She is the Executive Producer of Claws on TNT, a nail-salon turned money-laundering-front dramedy, set to premiere this summer. This past April, she released a docu-series on Netflix, Hot Girls Wanted: Turned On, a continued exploration of themes discovered in her Emmy-nominated documentary in 2015, Hot Girls Wanted, this time focusing on society’s relationship with sex and technology. Fans grew to love Ms. Jones from her beloved roles on The Office and Parks and Recreation and through the romantic film that she wrote and starred in, Celeste and Jesse Forever. She will next be seen in the upcoming feature films Zoe alongside Ewan McGregor and Léa Seydoux, and the comedy Tag with Jeremy Renner and Ed Helms.
