‘In Plain Sight’ Third Season Ends Early

Cliffhanger Alert

USA Network crime dramedy In Plain Sight closes its third season three episodes early tonight, June 30, with the 10pm ET finale “A Priest Walks into a Bar.”

Many viewers who have been following the show during its current run will probably agree with me that the series has been far better than expected, based on its already enjoyable earlier two seasons. So, USA Network’s decision to end the present season at 13 episodes instead of the originally planned 16 installments is understandable yet disappointing all the same.

The reason for the shortening is the medical leave of absence that executive producer and showrunner John McNamara required. Best wishes to him for a speedy recovery.

Season Three’s finale involves a priest who saw a stripper get killed and then has difficulty cutting ties with the victim’s family after entering witness protection. Meanwhile, Stan has a hard time telling a woman about her dead father who was a former witness, Brandi and Peter decided to live together, and Jinx returns.

Enjoy three sneak peeks at “A Priest Walks into a Bar” below before the full episode airs. The episode reportedly ends with a cliffhanger that will virtually ensure fans — and the show — will come back. Good.

  1. This is one of the best series I have ever followed. I really hope it doesn’t end here. I have never cared enough to write a station before. Please let this series return. Claire Kelley

    1. Never fear, Claire. I’m convinced In Plain Sight will be back. It seems unlikely that USA Network would cancel the series at this point, considering how well it performs in the ratings and the fact that the last season ended early because of unexpected illness.

  2. This is one of the best TV shows. When will the 4th season start?

    1. USA Network hasn’t announced a return date yet. News will arrive any day now, hopefully.

    2. USA Network just made the official announcement this morning, Mary. In Plain Sight opens its fourth season on Sunday, May 1, at 10pm ET. Yay!

  3. I pray that USA Network will bring back In Plain Sight. I always looked forward to watching it every week. There is a new Marshal’s show on TV, but I have no desire to watch it. Doesn’t appeal to me like In Plain Sight does. Please let this series return.

    1. No worries, BJ, In Plain Sight will be back — I’d bet money on it. The big question is when. We’ll just have to be patient.

    2. BJ, as I just wrote to Mary, USA Network confirmed this morning that In Plain Sight will definitely return on Sunday, May 1, at 10pm ET. See — I told you there was nothing to worry about. (Glad I ended up being right.)
