Three popular TNT dramas will be returning to the network in 2016.
Major Crimes has been renewed for its fifth season, consisting of 13* episodes which will air in the summer of 2016. Major Crimes Season 4 will continue airing February 2016.
The Librarians has been granted a third season, consisting of 10* episodes, which will air during the fall of 2016. The Librarians Season 2 is currently airing on TNT.
Murder in the First finished its second season this past summer and will air its third season this coming summer in conjunction with Major Crimes.
While the episode order on Major Crimes is shortened, it comes in the wake of a five episode bonus that was added to Season 4, so that could the reasoning behind the abbreviated nature of the renewal.
