In the latest press release, NBC said that "the storyline brings Lopez's complex character to a fitting resolution," noting that the 48-year-old reality star will still be involved with the network's competition series World of Dance.
Jennifer said in a statement,
I have enjoyed producing and starring in this beautifully complicated world and playing such an empowering yet flawed character -- a women, a detective, but, first and foremost, a mother. Now looking at it with a little distance, playing Harlee strengthened me and helped me grow into a more self-assured woman. It's crazy how some parts permeate your soul and change you forever and for that I am grateful.
We crafted a poetic three-season arc on how her journey ends, which is true redemption. The way only Harlee could have done it—the hard way, the road less traveled. I thank NBC and all the talented actors, writers, crew and producers for going on this journey with us!
Jennifer has also shared a pic of herself as Santos via Instagram, and the caption reads, "Get Ready For Harlee And The Crew...#Shades3 #June17th #ShadesOfBlue."

The good thing is that the actress is not going anywhere. Jennifer still has her successful Las Vegas All I Have residency at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino.
She will also return as a judge on season two of, World of Dance, and will star in the upcoming film Second Act.
