TNT Renews ‘Rizzoli & Isles,’ ‘Major Crimes’ and ‘Perception’

Trio of renewals arrive on the heels of TNT ordering a fourth run for 'Falling Skies'

TNT has handed new seasons to three of its top summer series.

Rizzoli & Isles” has been renewed for a fifth season after ranking as basic cable’s top series this summer. Drama averages 8.4 million viewers in L+7, an uptick from last season. “Major Crimes” received a third season, drawing 6.7 million in L+7. Finally, TNT renewed “Perception” for a third season.

All three programs ranked in basic cable’s top 10 summer dramas. Orders follow last month’s renewal of “Falling Skies” for a fourth season.

“TNT has had a terrific summer with four big hits that have drawn viewers with great storytelling, engaging characters and outstanding performances,” said Michael Wright, president, head of programming for TNT, TBS and Turner Classic Movies (TCM). “With the renewals of ‘Rizzoli & Isles,’ ‘Major Crimes,’ ‘Falling Skies’ and ‘Perception,’ TNT has built an incredibly strong arsenal of scripted series. And it’s only going to get stronger with the addition of Mob City and the return of Dallas this winter, not to mention the debuts of The Last Ship and Legends next summer.”
