Billed as a “creative revamp”, a Body of Proof’s third season kicks off this week with a spine tingling two-parter. The most noticeable changes for fans will be in the cast. Nicholas Bishop (who plays Peter), John Carrol Lynch (Bud) and Sonja Sohn (Sam) have all been cut with two new characters joining the cast. The first, Det. Tommy Sullivan, played by Mark Valley, is Megan’s ex-something who transfers to Philadelphia to try to win her back. As you’ll see in the clip introducing him, she is less than receptive. The character of Det. Adam Schaeffer is added to bait the youth demo.
“Abducted – Part 1” – Megan returns to work months after Peter’s death, and she is surprised by a man from her past-Tommy Sullivan (Mark Valley, “Fringe”), the new detective assigned to her case. Megan, along with Tommy and his rookie partner, Adam Schaeffer (Elyes Gabel, “Game of Thrones”), must stop a serial killer whose victims are young war veterans. As she learns more about the crime, the stakes rise when she gets a call from the killer — who is holding her teenage daughter, Lacey, hostage. The season premiere of “Body of Proof” airs TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 19 (10:00-11:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network.
