Instinct stars Alan Cumming as former CIA operative, author and university professor turned police consultant Dylan Reinhart and Bojana Novakovic as Detective Lizzie Needham, Dylan’s partner, who fluctuates between being irritated by and enamored with Dylan. As season 2 begins, Dylan is reinstated after having been put on leave by the NYPD, just in time to join Detective Needham on a new case. With Dylan and Lizzie back together, the “Sleeping Beauty Killer” case comes their way, and they realize they need to continue to both trust their instincts.
A smart and surprising take on the police procedural, Instinct also offers a quietly groundbreaking character in Cumming’s Dylan Reinhart: the first openly gay lead in a TV Network drama, a fact that’s not merely treated as a throwaway detail, but that helps define the character’s personality, career choices, world view, and sense of humor.
