    • As much as I’d love to see that come to pass, I don’t think they’ll go there. I’ll still tune in though, love the show.

  • Hopefully Franklin & Bash will also get picked up for another season – and hopefully for more than 10 measly episodes.

  • Am I the only one who is glad that Jane and Mora aren’t dating? They are only close friends, straight friends… they have their own love lives with men. they stay with each other when they are heart broken or madly in love. They are two amazing friends, and it should stay that way.

    • You are not the only one. In my opinion people usually want the two main characters on shows to couple up (Elliot and Olivia, Hotch and Prentiss) and somethimes chemistry is better when partners are just good friends. I think they act like most best friends.

    • Maura has to be straight, PLEASE, because someday in my dreams she will fall in love with me. Also, if you read the books, Jane is married with children.

      • Doesnt Jane marry agent dean anyways? where does this Casey fellow come into it?

    • I agree, they confirm that women can be very close without lesbian overtones. Women communicate with each other on a deeper level than men without negating a wonderful relationship with males. Love the show, the intelligence and the overall commitment to friendship, remember, “I”ve got your back!”.

      • Well I´m gay and to be honest I love the idea, that Jane and Maura will be together, but that would be the end of show, because honestly it is so obvious that they are straight !!! I think, that magic between Jane and Maura is in their friendship. Sorry if there are some mistakes my english is not too good.

    • I agree with you 100%

  • Fully agree Bri, they already did a comedy lesbian bit when putting off whatshisface, the mechanic guy. It was really funny, but they are best friends, that’s all.
    Also, any chance of a decent theme for this show?
    I get the show is set in Boston, but the jaunty riverdance music just doesn’t fit!

  • My wife and I were eager watchers of this series in the beginning till it deteriorated to junior-high banter. The script tries too hard to be funny and the show suffers from overacting and drama–just like Junior-high. We stopped watching.

    • You may be correct but I’ve seen all the episodes over a week long period and I’m still delighted with the writers trying to develop the characters without the soapy element. I feel Jane (A Harmon) would have made a great Stephanie Plum character much better than Catherine H. I am looking forward to more in the series with developments of some of the earlier characters.

    • Je viens juste de checker sur l’internet, ils disent que le show va commencer a filmer au mois je Janvier, et que c’est apparement un show d’ete, alors on va probablement voir la 4ieme saison au mois de Juin

      Comment by nancy – January 20, 2013 10:49 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • season 4 : Tommy’s gonna die and leave TJ to Jane. She will be with that injured soldier. He won’t do the surgery, they already have a baby TJ. so who cares if his dick works. Lydia is gonna give up the custody over TJ or gonna die, whatever. I wish Jane and Maura were gay though. That’s my fav OTP.

  • It’s great the way it is best friends working together having there separate lives but there for each other. No they shouldn’t be gay. Jane is in love with Casey . I like this show with Angle Harmony and Sasha Alexander . I am tired of law and order reruns I’d like to see this as reruns on usa

  • When in 2013 will the new season start? I don’t want to miss a show.

  • i am a lesbian who yes is glad that rizzoli and isles are straight i like the relationship that they have which to me feels like siblings not a couple yes i want to see more lesbian couples in tv and movies and i want more shows and films about that but not everything is about that and in this case i feel that the chemistry is right and does not need to be changed in any way i love this show for what it is a good buddy/ cop show so to all fellow lesbians i say this although we need more content for us this show is not it so just enjoy it for the good show it is and put aside the they should be a couple thoughts

    • I agree with you but still idea of Jane or Maura with some man feels not good for me but I totally understand that every show that have two female main characters can not be allways lesbian even if it disapointing for some of fans.
      PS : Sorry for mistakes I still need to get better in my english

      Comment by Susan – January 30, 2013 10:49 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • I agree with you completely until read all these comments I never even thought of these two as a gay couple, in fact anyone who watched the episode where they pretend to be gay to me it was obvious they’re just friends.

  • there is something more than friendship between them and i think sooner or later they will be a couple

  • Rizzoli and Casey HAVE to be together in season 4! They have such chemistry together, and it’s a really touching story line with so much potential!

    Bring Casey back!

    Comment by LK – February 28, 2013 06:35 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • No way! Come on Jane needs someone else. Of course I would prefer Maura but we all know how is that, anyway Jane needs someone new fresh, cool, a bit funny.

      Comment by Susan – March 1, 2013 10:32 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • A romantic relationship between Jane and Maura would end the show. Their friendship is what makes the show what it is. I am straight and have a straight (married) best friend. Our relationship is very much like Rizzoli and Isles. It IS possible to love your bff without being IN love with her. A friendship like that only comes once in a lifetime. Don’t ruin it with romance between them.

    • i totally agree! Casey is the way to go!
