The series stars Grimm veteran Russell Hornsby as the title character, a former NYPD detective and forensics expert who retired after suffering near-fatal injuries on the job that left him a paraplegic.
"You know that saying, ‘Find what you love and let it kill you'? Well, I loved what I did and I was the best," Lincoln Rhyme says in the exclusive sneak peek trailer below.

"The Bone Collector is the most infamous serial killer in the last two decades," Lincoln Rhyme explains in first look below.
Years ago, Lincoln Rhyme was on the trail of a serial killer known as The Bone Collector until one day he just disappeared. When an elaborate murder points to The Bone Collector's return, Lincoln returns to the case with the assistance of Amelia Sachs, a rookie cop played by Arielle Kebbel in the series. She has a gift for profiling, is going for her PhD for in criminal psychology, and acts as Lincoln's eyes and ears in the field. Can this duo bring down the serial killer as a team?
"I'm ready for another shot at the bastard who put me in this bed," Lincoln says.
