'Major Crimes' To End With Upcoming Sixth Season

TNT has announced that the upcoming sixth season of Major Crimes will be the series last. A spinoff from the hit drama The Closer, Major Crimes is the network's #1 series in total viewers and has has consistently ranked as one of cable's most watched drama series. Averaging 7.7 million viewers per episode.

Calling it a spinoff is kind of a misnomer. When Kyra Sedgwick decided to leave the series, the network shifted her character of Brenda Leigh Johnson out for Sharon Raydor (Mary McDonnell) and kept just about everyone else in place. But since the title of the series was about Johnson, the name shift took place and Major Crimes debuted in 2012.

The series also stars G.W. Bailey, Tony Denison, Michael Paul Chan, Raymond Cruz, Phillip P. Keene, Graham Patrick Martin, Kearran Giovanni, Jonathan Del Arco, Leonard Roberts, Jessica Meraz and Daniel di Tomasso. It also features recurring appearances by Jon Tenney, Ransford Doherty, Kathe Mazur, Rene Rosado, Dawnn Lewis and Bill Brochtrup.

Series creator James Duff said:

The whole company of Major Crimes is dedicated to making 2017-18 the best season yet. We will finish our long run on TNT with a finale worthy of our loyal viewers and their years of unstinting support.

Major Crimes season 6 premieres October 31st at 9 PM, and the series will wrap with a two-episode finale on Tuesday, January 16th at 9 PM.
