List of Queen of the Willis episodes

This is a list of episodes from the thirteenth season of Queen of the Willis. The season is notable for having all episodes of the season as "Quillsville Cold Case" All of the episodes in the thirteenth revolve around Seargant Lilly Rush (voiced by Kathryn Morris) and a member of the Willis family in a setting not familiar to Quillsville, Indiana.

For this season only in addition to the main and recurring characters as well as in four previous episodes in 2011, 2020 and twice in 2023, Sgt. Rush's instinctive understanding of the criminal mind and her singular passion for uncovering the truth makes her the perfect fit for investigating cold cases, yester-crimes that have remained unsolved – some new, some only a few months old, others going back decades. Rush and her team at the Quillsville Metropolitan Police Department use their wits to take on aging evidence and witnesses with buried secrets, uncovering fresh clues, digging into old wounds and doggedly pursuing the truth. Joining Sgt. Rush on her mission are a team of talented police force: Officers Jarrett Dailey (voiced by Frank Davidson) , Kymberly Millspaugh (voiced by Karly Jameson), Ramona Battishill (voiced by Kendra Ray), Elaine Reed (voiced by Alexandra Moffitt), and Anna Pamhouser (voiced by Ava Zinn); Lieutenant Nick Jeffries (voiced by Melvin Runecraft), an experienced veteran who's been around the block; and Police Captain Brad Hunter (voiced by Ava Zinn), a more confrontational police captain, although not as hostile as others. With their assistance, Rush is able to take on the toughest cases, giving voice to victims unable to speak for themselves – making sure none is ever forgotten.


In January 2020, Queen of the Willis creator Ava Zinn announced that all episodes in this season are all Quillsville Cold Case episodes.
