Retired Colorado Springs Police Lieutenant Joe Kenda is saying goodbye to his hit TV series “Homicide Hunter.”
The show that has aired for nine seasons on Investigation Discovery comes to a conclusion next Wednesday in an episode titled, “The End.”
In the final episode, Kenda is called in to investigate a triple homicide. The case forces Kenda to face some of his own personal demons and eventually leads the detective to a new, unexpected path. Kenda’s wife, Kathy, and his children contribute to the episode.
We’ll also learn how Kenda went from police detective to unexpected TV star and how a television camera became a form of therapy.
“The stories that I have left in my case files are either too simple or simply too gruesome to tell on television,” Lt. Kenda revealed. “I always wanted to go out at the top of my game, and I can assure you that season nine is just that. I am grateful and humbled for this ‘Homicide Hunter’ journey. Thank you for letting me entertain you.”
Thankfully, this won’t be the last we’ll see of Lt. Joe Kenda. In a recent interview, Kenda revealed he has a new show in the works for Investigation Discovery.
The series finale of “Homicide Hunter: Lt. Joe Kenda” airs Wednesday, January 29th on Investigation Discovery.
I’m sad to see the show end as my wife and I are big fans. I’ve always felt that if there were more like Joe Kenda, the world would be a better place. Kenda chose to “stand up” and stop the bad people, and for that, we are forever grateful.
