Coming to The Closer: Change

at . Comments

Change isn't just coming to The White House. It's also coming to cable's highest-rated program.

When asked about season five of The Closer, star Kyra Sedgwick told E! News:

"This season's theme is about change. There have been a couple changes in the squad, and Brenda's a married woman."

The fifth season of the TNT hit premieres tonight. Here's what else Sedgwick had to say about the series:

On marriage: I think it will be something that's challenging for her. I think she's a workaholic, and she's more married to her work than anything else. I think that that is going to be an ongoing issue for both of them.

On a softer side to Brenda: When she loses someone very close to her, I think you'll see a very soft fragility. But I like that: her womanly side, her softer side and her very vulnerable side.

On upcoming guest stars: One of the things I'm most excited about is Mary McDonnell comes on and plays an antagonist for Brenda. It's really great for Brenda to have a female antagonist, I think. And Lee Tergesen from Oz. We're trying to get someone great for the next episode. I don't know who it's gonna be.

Brenda: Alright, just plain Bill. I'm just plain Brenda, LAPD.

[To Sgt. Gabriel] I should probably explain that I do not form my relationships with people based on how they're treating you. That would be your mother, maybe.
