Los Angeles, October 19, 2017 - WGN America announced today that its recently acquired, thrilling crime drama, "Bellevue," is slated to premiere on Tuesday January 23, 2018 at 10:00 p.m. ET / 9:00 p.m. CT.

As the case pulls her further away from her family, she is also confronted by a mysterious person from her past with disturbing answers to lingering questions and a terrifying need to play mind games. Along the way, Annie must navigate a complicated relationship with her on again, off again ex, Eddie (Allen Leech) and her boss on the force, Chief Peter Welland (Shawn Doyle).
