Rizzoli & Isles Final Season

Rizzoli & Isles: Yvette Nicole Brown Set for Final-Season Guest Stint

Rizzoli & Isles is giving Yvette Nicole Brown its stamp of approval, casting the Odd Couple actress as a “brash and blustery” U.S. Postal Inspector, TVLine has learned exclusively.

Brown’s character CJ Prescott, who possesses an over-the-top passion for her job, will turn up during the TNT drama’s upcoming seventh and final season. As of now she’s scheduled to appear in one episode.

The ubiquitous Community vet recently shot a guest stint on CBS’ The Young and the Restless. She’s also a semi-regular fixture on AMC’s Walking Dead post-show The Talking Dead.

Rizzoli & Isles’ farewell season will consist of 13 episodes and premiere this summer. In announcing the show’s end date back in January, TNT president Kevin Reilly said that stars Angie Harmon and Sasha Alexander “have had a really satisfying experience” working on the series, adding. “I don’t know that they wouldn’t do anymore, but they felt very comfortable that it’s had a good run. Everyone said, ‘Let’s go out and finish 13 great ones and call it a day.’”

Rizzoli & Isles will close out its current sixth season on March 15.

    show has actually become very boring and predictable. Surprise me. Is the New ME as Kind as he seems or is he actually related to the season 1&2 serial killer that Jane and Maura put away, who has come for revengt!!! now that would be interesting.

  14. Sally Curcio says:

    Rizzoli and isles is a great show. I can’t believe your canceling it. What a shame.

  15. Brenda says:

    Wow! This is/was a fabulous show. TNT needs to keep this & get rid of some of those other nonsense making, ridiculous shows. Sorry to see R & I leave as I was a dedicated viewer. Rizzoli was a kick-butt kinda woman while Isles was a true fashion diva which made them a great team! I wish TNT would reconsider. I’m also upset with TNT canceling my other show “Dallas”!

  16. Bette Rice says:

    Quit canceling the good shows for garbage please
