Plot Synopsis

Two San Francisco homicide detectives, Terry English and Hildy Mulligan, investigate the murder of an apparent drug addict in the city's Tenderloin District, and they find the victim is connected to Silicon Valley wunderkind Erich Blunt, the celebrated CEO of a cutting-edge tech firm. The timing couldn't be worse for Blunt, who is preparing to take his company public. He's also being sued by a software developer who claims Blunt stole his code for a revolutionary new hologram system. As the case opens, Terry struggles to focus at work, because his wife, Emily, is battling stage-four pancreatic cancer. Plus, as soon as the two detectives make some progress on the case, Blunt's beautiful flight attendant is found dead. MURDER IN THE FIRST follows this case for all 10 episodes of the first season, which premiered on Monday, June 9, 2014 at 10pm ET/PT on TNT. In the Season 1 finale, "Blunt the Edge," English and Mulligan are fully immersed in the tangled web of trying to solve the Kevin Neyers murder. As they investigate possible suspects one by one, they discover a series of shocking secrets on their pursuit of eventual justice. MURDER IN THE FIRST returned for its second season on Monday, June 8, 2015 at 10pm ET/PT on TNT. In Season 2, English and Mulligan investigate a series of murders that could rip the city apart and shake the police force at its core. Caught in the crosshairs during one of the most shocking crimes in the city's history, Mulligan, English and the men and women of 850 Bryant Street find themselves trapped in a crumbling system where the lines are blurred -- between friends and enemies, loyalty and corruption, legal and illegal, good and evil -- as a threat from outside is matched by a threat from within. Joining the cast this season are A.J. Buckley, Emmanuelle Chriqui, Laila Robins, Mo McRae, Mateus Ward and John Cothran. Returning series regulars include Raphael Sbarge and Lombardo Boyar as Homicide Inspectors David Molk and Edgar Navarro, Ian Anthony Dale as Lt. Jim Koto, Currie Graham as Chief Prosecutor Mario Siletti and Mimi Kirkland as Hildy's daughter, Louise. Season 3 of MURDER IN THE FIRST premiered on Sunday, June 26, 2016 at 10pm ET/PT on TNT. This season, English and Mulligan are thrust into the tangled world of sports and celebrity when an all-star quarterback is murdered in the middle of a crowded club in front of his pop star girlfriend. As their investigation becomes increasingly more complex, the Inspectors are faced with their own, personal tribulations, compounding the cascading pressures of the case. Meanwhile, the prolific DA of SF, Mario Siletti, has his pedal to the medal as he attempts to stay afloat after he and his wife are involved in a tragic car accident that could end his career and his marriage. And an untimely diagnosis threatens Hildy's future.
On Sunday, September 4, 2016 at 10pm ET/PT, TNT premiered the Season 3 finale of MURDER IN THE FIRST. In the season ender, "Kat's Meow," Terry and Hildy race to close one of their most complex cases. A new grisly murder hits close to home for the inspectors. Siletti learns his victory in court comes with a substantial price.
