Major Crimes Season 5 Gets Supersized

Major Crimes Season 5 Additional Episodes

There will be 62 percent more Major Crimes for Sharon Raydor and her team to solve this season than originally planned.

TVLine has learned exclusively that the recently premiered Season 5 of the TNT crime drama has been expanded by eight episodes, to a total of 21.

The offshoot of The Closer last season delivered a whopping 23 episodes, a series high, as the result of late-August order of five additional hours (which aired as a “standalone” arc this past winter).

Major Crimes airs Mondays at 10/9c, leading out of Rizzoli & Isles‘ seventh and final season.
