Morris Chestnut Dishes on ‘Rosewood’

Morris Chestnut

Thursday night, Morris Chestnut returns to primetime TV screens as Dr. Beaumont Rosewood, Jr., a pathologist who works to solve cases in East Miami.

In the premiere episode, Rosewood investigates the mysterious murder of a promising young mentee of Miami’s hot-shot mayor (Yancey Arias), who gets personally involved in the case. Meanwhile, a new captain shakes things up at the East Miami Police Department.

Recently, Chestnut and Rosewood co-star Jaina Lee Ortiz spoke with JET about what fans can expect during the upcoming season.

Last season, Rosewood was a surprise hit for Fox, bringing in nearly four million viewers each week. Last season, the show aired on Wednesday nights after Empire, but this time around Chestnut’s show will have to stand on its own.

Thankfully, Rosewood has a veteran cast, which includes Lorraine Toussaint, Gabrielle Dennis, and Domenick Lombardozzi. 

Rosewood airs Thursday nights at 8pm on Fox.
