Initially, the opinions of Laura and Nancy will constantly clash with each other. However, they will somehow find common ground eventually and will learn to understand each other.

"Revenge" star Gabriel Mann will make a guest appearance in the new season. He announced the news through his Twitter post. There is no information yet on what his role will be. 

NBC has stated that the second series will be co-produced by "Law and Order" alum Michael Smith, who will also direct some of the episodes.

Besides Smith, series creator Jeff Rake will continue to be the executive producer along with Greg Berlanti, Aaron Kaplan, Sarah Schechter, McG and Todd Lituchy.

Speaking about the next season, actor Debra Messing (Detective Laura Diamond) said: "I know that everybody is very excited about making the homicide cases as smart and surprising as possible. You know much like Sherlock — the TV show Sherlock — we want to keep them as sophisticated as possible.

"And then of course fine the light moments that have to come when her private life sort of interjects itself. I think you're going to see more of Jake and Laura spending more time together."

Debra further added that fans will love the new season as it will be a bit "sharper" than season one.

In the final episode of season one titled "The Mystery of the Cornerstone Crossfire," the story wrapped-up on a positive note as Laura and her team managed to find the person who shot Jake (Josh Lucas).

Meanwhile, Detective Meredith (Janina Gavankar) proposed to Detective Billy, which put Laura in a complicated situation of a love triangle. The new season is expected to elaborate upon Laura's love life as well.
