Prepare for more of The Closer.

TNT has ordered six additional episode of the Kyra Sedgwick series, bringing its final season total to 21. Look for the network to air 10 this summer, according to Entertainment Weekly, followed by five in the winter - and these six in the summer of 2012.

From there? Sedgwick's Brenda Leigh Johnson will exit, likely due to a disagreement over a deal made behind the scenes regarding a significant case.

A new lead character will be brought in to anchor a drama tentatively titled "Major Crimes." We'll keep you posted as more news breaks.


I love the closer and I don't want Kyra to not return. It won't be the same without her wit. I probably will quit watching the show. Since I have been a loyal fan from the beginning. There is not very many good shows out there to watch. Please come back.


When are we going to see the real McDonald? She is SO stiff in the Closer! She talks like she's having trouble reading her lines! I can see Major Crimes dying on the vine if she doesn't starting acting like a human being! When she comes on screen, it's like someone running their nails on a blackboard! I just want to slap her!


Brenda Leigh Johnson cannot be replaced. Msry McDonald can't carry the load like Kyra and Capt Raydar is obnoxious,TNT has lost a Closer fan!


I am so sad that this is the last season for "The Closer!" It is one of the best shows on TV among all the other terrible shows. I like the brain twists, teasers and laughs from this show. It shows just what a determined woman can do in a crowded field of men! Don't Leave!!! Please Stay!


Hmm I do love the cast not sure who they can bring it to replace Brenda...I guess this means we lose Fritz too...ugghh


Major Crimes? isn't that kind of Criminal Intent?


The Closer Quotes

[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.


If I liked being called a bitch to my face, I'd still be married.
