There’s good news for Rizzoli and Isles shippers! Just like Law and Order: SVU, Criminal Minds and Cold Case before it, TNT’s hot procedural starring Angie Harmon and Sasha Alexander is about to got into syndication.

That means that diehard fans--who’ve likely worn grooves into their DVD sets analyzing the lesbian subtext—might just randomly click on their favorite episodes while folding laundry and flipping channels. Despite the ready availability of almost any show on TV via streaming, it’s still fun to happen upon a favorite show.

The series, a procedural that centers on the working relationship and friendship -- one that has launched countless lesbian fan fiction pieces--between a tough-talking detective (Harmon) and an intellectual medical examiner (Alexander), has been sold in 170 markets including stations owned by Fox, CBC, Hearst, Gannett, Cox and many more, reports The Hollywood Reporter.

The show’s fourth season premiered in June, up 18 percent year-over-year, according to THR.

Rizzoli and Isles’ first three seasons, as well as current episodes, are available to stream on Amazon.
