Criminals, beware: TNT has ordered a second season of its hit docu-drama “Cold Justice.” The show, which ranks as one of basic cable’s Top 5 new unscripted series of the year, follows former prosecutor Kelly Siegler and former crime scene investigator Yolanda McClary as they attempt to solve long-cold murder cases in small towns across America.

The show is produced by Wolf Films and Magical Elves. Dick Wolf (“Law & Order,” “Chicago Fire”), Dan Cutforth and Jane Lipsitz (“Top Chef,” “Fashion Star”) and Tom Thayer (“Hitchcock,” “Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee”) are executive producers.

“We’re very proud to be renewing ‘Cold Justice,’ which has already delivered real-world results for several of the cases featured on the show,” said David Eilenberg, TNT’s senior vice president of unscripted development, in a news release. “Viewers have come to see Kelly and Yolanda as a real-life counterpart to such crime-drama duos as ‘Cagney & Lacey’ and even our own ‘Rizzoli & Isles.’”

To date, “Cold Justice” has resulted in a number of actions, including a guilty plea in a Cuero, Texas-based case, and three murder indictments in a Morehouse Parrish, La., case.

The first season of “Cold Justice” ends on Tuesday, Oct. 22. Season 2 is tentatively slated to debut in early 2014.
