The Division is an American police procedural drama television series created by Deborah Joy LeVine starring Bonnie Bedelia. The series focuses on a team of female detectives and police officers in the San Francisco Police Department. The series premiered on Lifetime on January 7, 2001[1] and ended on June 28, 2004 after 88 episodes.[2]


The show focused on the lives of five policewomen in the felony division headed by Captain Kate McCafferty (Bonnie Bedelia). Storylines revolved around the women's personal and professional lives, and their attempts to balance both. The series tackled such topics as alcoholism, drug addiction, homophobia, and sexual abuse.

The series premiered on January 7, 2001,[3] earning a 3.1 rating and the "largest audience of any basic cable original series" that year.[4] After four seasons, the show was canceled on June 28, 2004. It was the network's second "longest-running scripted series".[2]

After its cancellation, The Division was rebroadcast on the Lifetime network in various timeslots until 2007. In 2007, reruns aired on Lifetime Real Women. Starting in September 2018, the broadcast syndication became available on Start TV.[5][6][7]
