Major Crimes Season 5 Gets Winter Return Date, On a New Night

Some three months after Season 5’s summer finale aired, TNT’s Major Crimes has been given a return date — and a brand-new time slot.

The offshoot of The Closer is set to resume its season on Feb. 22, now airing on Wednesday nights at 9/8c — landing it opposite CBS’ Criminal Minds, Fox freshman Star, NBC’s SVU and Season 4 of The CW’s The 100.

Guest stars on tap for the back half of Major Crimes‘ Season 5 run include The Practice Emmy winner Camryn Manheim and The People v. O.J. Simpson’s Leonard Roberts (as Sharon’s rivals for the late Russell Taylor’s Assistant Chief of Special Operations job), plus Silk Stalkings‘ Rob Estes.
