Murder Club reopens April 29

  • 8comments

There's a double-dose of good news for Women's Murder Club fans. First, ABC reconfirmed that the show--which has not yet cemented a second-season pickup--is definitely coming back for three more episodes this month. The network has targeted April 29 at 10 p.m. for the drama's return.

Second, April 29 is a Tuesday--a much better night to grab some ratings than the show's previous Friday-night slot. Instead of airing when most nine-to-fivers are out burning off another tiresome workweek and welcoming the weekend, Women's Murder Club will have the chance to show what it can do to a more attentive audience and have Dancing with the Stars as its lead-in.

With Murder Club moving to Tuesdays, Boston Legal will preside over Wednesday nights beginning April 30 at 10 p.m. However, the David E. Kelley legal drama will only be there for a few weeks, as Men in Trees has been penciled in to return May 28.

Women's Murder Club is based on novels by James Patterson and follows a group of savvy ladies in San Francisco who combine their expertise to solve crimes. The show has undergone a fair amount of change since its conception, recently adding new showrunner Robert Nathan (ER, Law & Order).
