TNT renews ‘Major Crimes’

'Closer' spinoff got off to strong start in August debut

TNT has renewed “The Closer” spinoff “Major Crimes” for a second season.

News is not surprising as the Mary McDonnell starrer got off to a strong start when in launched in August. “Major Crimes” is the No. 1 new cable series of the year, averaging 7 million viewers per episode (live plus 7) as well as 1.6 million in the 18-49 demo and 2.1 million in 25-54.

Cabler has ordered 15 episodes of the Warner Bros.-produced skein, which airs at 9 p.m. Monday. Current season, which is 10 episodes, is set to conclude Oct. 15.

James Duff, Greer Shephard, Michael M. Robin, and Rick Wallace are exec producers.

James Duff and his production team have crafted an incredibly entertaining show that not only honors the spirit of ‘The Closer,’ but also stands alone with its own voice and spirit,” said TNT president Michael Wright.

Renewal marks the third freshman drama the cabler has given a second season. Earlier in the year, “Dallas” and “Perception” were each picked up for season two.
