TNT Schedules Winter Runs for Leverage, Southland and Others, Sets Mystery Movie Slate

Building on this week’s unofficial theme of Cablers Announce Their Fall/Winter Plans, TNT on Tuesday revealed its winter return/premiere dates for four different series.

Leading things off: Leverage, which airs its summer finale this Sunday, will resume its fourth season on Nov. 27, with eight new episodes.

On Nov. 28, The Closer will return with what we will call Season 7.33, comprised of five episodes, followed by Rizzoli & Isles‘ Season 2.5 (also five eps).

Southland, meanwhile, is set to launch its fourth season on Jan. 17, 2012, with 10 fresh episodes — each and every one of them like salt in NBC’s wound.
