“With Major Crimes, James Duff and his amazing production team have crafted an incredibly entertaining show that not only honors the spirit of The Closer, but also stands alone with its own voice and spirit,” TNT programming boss Michael Wright said in announcing the pick-up. “We look forward to another season of this remarkable new drama.”

  • Not a surprise, but it’s a pretty boring show.

      • well lesa901. seems like you are aquainted to lori, if you and lori do not like the show, then watch something else. AMC has a lot of reruns of the ‘THE THREE STOOGES’ find one more friend
        with your mentality and you’ll be in good company!!
        Those of us who appreciate a well written script, and talented actors, that can interact with
        ease with the material given them with sincerity, humor and delivery that enhances the plot and
        keeps you involved, is rare. Major Crimes fills all of those requirements, those that do not
        appreciate this, are missing one of the best shows on TV. The only problem I’ve found is
        there are not more episodes to view, and I can’t bring it up constantly On Demand!!.
        Keep it up TNT, you’re the best of a New Breed, there’s not many left that will go out
        and find an awesome script filled with talented actors blending so naturally human.

        TNT = do not pay any attention to the nay sayers of your programing line up, they do not know
        of which they spout!!! Your shows have received many avid viewers and I have many
        friends who feel the same way.
        Keep up the great work, I and my many friends will always keep you as our main channel.!!

        • I hate to be as rude as you are but please learn to spell! I DO watch other shows, seems like The Three Stooges are much more up your alley than mine! I enjoyed The Closer so I gave Major Crimes a shot, I didn’t like it so I won’t watch it anymore! I suggest that you stop watching mediocre t.v. and take some classes!

    • I like MAJOR CRIMES. Raydor & the rest of Cast all do a great job!!!
      It’s not The Closer and I knew that going in to it. I think it’s great like it is. I like that Rusty has stayed with Raydor. It lets us see a more personal side of Raydor. I give the first season a Two Thumbs Up!!!! Looking Forward to many more Seasons!!!!@

    • you are someone who watches the wives of somewhere, and has no idea what a talented show can portray. if this is boring, i’d like to see your dinner parties. as if anyone would attend them!!

  • great news. even though I miss Chief Johnson, I’ve come to really like Captain Raydor. Mary McDonnell has been excellent.

    • i am in love with Major Crimes and I stay up late to catch reruns of The Closer, It’s a win win on both programs.

  • Not as fun as The Closer,but enjoying it anyway. Good for them :)

  • Brenda kinda went off the deep end there last season. I like how Captain Raydor is slowly winning over the respect of the team. Well written.

  • Ive enjoy MJ but not as much as The Close. The Rusty storyline is getting too boring..and Sharon needs a life!

  • Is Franklin and Bash dead?

  • Thanks, Matt. What about Leverage?

    Comment by MoxieSue – September 27, 2012 10:47 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • You know how cable works. LEVERAGE is in midseason hiatus, too early for them to call.

      Comment by Matt Webb Mitovich – September 27, 2012 10:52 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • Is that a change? I think they renewed Leverage in August last year, despite the hiatus … Good for Major Crimes, though!

      • Rizzoli & Isles is in midseason hiatus and it was renewed back in June according to Kimberly Roots article from June 29th found here: http://tvline.com/2012/06/29/rizzoli-isles-renewed-season-4/. So why is it TNT has not renewed Leverage?

      • I’m getting use to it because of the original cast. Not crazy about Raydor, but love the story line. Tired of the Rusty character. Really??! This is an adult show, not a recurring kid soap opera. All the crimes are solved in one episode except his. Solve it and get him off! He’s young he can get another job.

  • Good news, I enjoy the show.

  • No word on Leverage or Franklin & Bash?????? hmmmm

    Comment by Missy Kelly – September 27, 2012 10:48 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Fantastic! I agree very much with the quote from the TNT programming boss. It is an excellent show in its own right but totally honors where it came from. Great writing and characters! :)

  • Adore this show. I like this news very much.

  • Sounds good to me. I liked the Closer more, but this is a good show.

  • Glad they are renewing it. I have grown to really like it, and have found some of the episodes really moving and outstandingly acted.

  • Okay…if they renew THIS then they have to renew Leverage and Farnklin & Bash =(

    Comment by mac – September 27, 2012 11:19 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • I like how you say “this” like Major Crimes blows. I think Franklin & Bash sucks pretty hard, but I’ve managed to keep it to myself.

  • Great news. Enjoyed the premiere season so far. Hoping for a classic Provenza/Flynn episode though!

    • Me too…love them

      • I’m actually not sure if it will ever happen…MC seems to be much darker-themed than the Closer, right now I dont know how they could fit in an episode like the one where P/F chase the two hookers who stole their car, ROFL.

        Comment by Pat D. – September 28, 2012 12:35 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Great news! The show started off slow but the last three episodes have been fantastic! Really well done.

  • What about Franklin & Bash Matt? Have there even been whispers? I love that show.

    Comment by catbean – September 27, 2012 10:01 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • I’m very happy to see Franklin & Bash renewed but I think Major Crimes is just kind of mediocre at best. It’s definitely not the Closer!

  • I liked The closer but I really like the new Major Crimes. It seems to grow on you. I am so glad they renewed the show. Will be sad to see the last one and have to wait till summer for more

  • I look forward to Mondays because I love watching Major Crimes. I just can’t wait to see what happens next! Love the Rusty storyline. The team is beginning to respect Capt Raydor more. I’m gonna have a hard time waiting for season 2!

    • I look forward to Monday nights because of Bones, Castle and Vegas!

    Mondays won’t be the same until 2013
    Summer schedule

  • I “think” leverage is on the way out, there was a line form the first ep about all things ending,and you look at it they all are making some kinds of “nesting” moves,of course they could just be coming in and have something more to lose.

  • Get rid of the Rusty theme.

    Comment by Bill M – November 12, 2012 10:00 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • The Closer started slowly as it developed characters and relationships. Major Crimes has great actors, scripts and delivery. I hope it is around for at least 200 episodes.

    Comment by Pat Choate – December 1, 2012 11:52 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • I think Major Crimes is just mediocre at best. And “Captain Radar” always looks like she’s constipated! What is the point of the Rusty character? The black female detective is just plain stupid and annoying so 200 episodes?

  • WHY DO WE HAVE TO WAIT FOR SUMMER ON MAJOR CRIMES RETURN?

    Comment by ISABEL BUTTORFF – December 30, 2012 11:27 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Why does TNT not allow us to watch the shows online? I missed a lot because I did not have a TV till x-mass last year. Most station you can watch all the shows CBS will not let you watch Person Of interest or Mike and Molly. We still get the commercials so what is the big deal? I like what little i saw of Major crimes, and miss Franklin and Bash and oh Leverage .

  • I am delighted Major Crimes will be coming back – good show, story lines, cast!

  • Jeez this show is GAWD awful. Is it me or does this woman have no acting talent at all?

    Comment by Bill – June 10, 2013 06:45 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • I loved the Closer, however I hate Major Crimes. Sharyn ruins it for me. She cold, monotone and emotionless. Even when it comes to Rusty, she barely shows any emotion or changes the tone of her voice. Even her line “I dont’ give a damn” is lacking any emotion or feeling.

    • I do not agree with the negative comments on capt raydor;s demeanor. I feel that she will warm up later. righjt now she is trying to prove herself. the rusty story is a lesson for all parents to contemplate. I, for one, love the entire cast and Major crimes. Isabel Buttorff

  • Will Brenda ever rejoin the cast in any capaity?

    Comment by John nCharles – June 25, 2013 12:35 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • why would Brenda want to join Major Crimes storyline? Sharon Rador portrayal is, in my opinion, is right on. Isabelle
