Hot Video: Are You 'Ready' for The Closer?

TNT’s top-rated The Closer uncorks its seventh and final season on Monday, July 11, and a new promo urges fans to “Get Ready” for what Brenda Leigh and the boys have in store.

As Emmy winner Kyra Sedgwick — whose decision it was to exit the cop drama after this next, spread-out, 21-episode run — told me, Season 7 is about Brenda getting “her comeuppance,” in some part due to a lawsuit filed against her and the Major Crimes Division in the upcoming opener.

Kyra Sedgwick’s Case for Leaving The Closer: ‘I Want To Go Out While We’re On Top’

That same season premiere, it should be noted-slash-teased, features one of the series’ best cold opens ever, and one of its most angry confessions coaxed from a suspect. And, as Corey Reynolds (aka Gabriel) shared with TVLine, “The last few minutes will absolutely leave your jaw. On. The. Floor. Something unbelievably unexpected happens.” Having now seen that moment, I must totally agree.

Here’s the promo. Now get ready for July 11.

    Can’t wait, love this show!

    • Llopo says:

      Can’t get past the horrible accent she does — the woman apparently has never actually heard a southerner talk.

      • Brian says:

        No, she’s not great at a southern accent. However, she’s a phenomenal actress otherwise and this is one of the most iconic detective characters in YEARS. It will be sad when this show is off the air after she utters her last, “Thank you very much” in her strange southern accent to her detectives!

    Did anyone else notice that Buzz has an LAPD badge in this promo?

  3. tahina says:

    Finally! :) I love this show, the whole cast is one of the best. Im going to miss them all specially Brenda Leigh.

  4. Allison says:

    You do realize that this promo has been running for a month and a half already right?

    • sadtroll says:

      Actually, this one is slightly different. Look closer Allison and maybe you’ll notice the changes they made. Might be very telling for this season imo.

  5. MJ says:

    I love this show, I’m gonna miss it so much once it’s over.

  6. Kate says:

    I just really want closure for the phillip stroh case!

  7. Bob says:

    Just wondering if everyone, including Will Pope, transfers over to Capt. Raydor’s “Major Case” or whatever they’re calling the spinoff.
