The renewal announcement was made Friday by Jennifer Salke, president of NBC Entertainment.
"We're so hugely appreciative of everything Jennifer and Ray do, and know it is due to their dedication, as well as the hard work of our incredible cast and producers, that 'Shades of Blue' has so clearly and compellingly earned a third-season renewal," Salke said in statement.
"This show continues to mine powerful stories that always leave us hungry for more."
