As the second season of Rizzoli & Isles opens, Jane and Frankie Jr. are each recovering from bullets they took during a siege at the police station.
As Jane struggles to overcome scars that are more emotional than physical, an old flame – Sergeant Major Charles "Casey" Jones (Chris Vance) – comes back into her life.
On the homefront, Jane's mother is despondent over a major upheaval in her own life. The situation will be complicated even more by the arrival of Jane's younger brother, Tommy (Colin Egglesfield), who was recently released from prison.
And for Maura, home life will get complicated when she receives a visit from her adoptive mother, Constance Isles (Jacqueline Bisset), a brilliant modern artist and art historian.
Jane and Maura will take on a number of intriguing cases this season, including a murder carried out during a Revolutionary War re-enactment, a killing in a professional baseball team's locker room, a complicated case involving a surrogate mother and a case involving the Salem witch trials.
Jane will also face the return of serial killer Charles Hoyt (Michael Massee), who takes a special joy in tormenting her.
Among the guest stars lined up for the second season of Rizzoli & Isles are Ernie Hudson as Frost's father, a Navy admiral; Matthew Del Negro as a mechanic who catches Maura's eye; and Bill O'Reilly as a potential murder suspect.
The series comes to TNT from Warner Horizon Television and is executive-produced by Janet Tamaro and Bill Haber's Ostar Productions.
