One fantastic drama ends, another begins. Launching immediately after the series finale of The Closer, Major Crimes is the Closer spin-off that will ensure several members of the Los Angeles Police Department's Major Crimes unit will remain in our primetime lives.
With Brenda Leigh Johnson gone and Captain Sharon Raydor (Mary McDonnell) now in charge, suffice it to say there is tension among the squad. Raydor is determined to forge more of a teamwork atmosphere in Major Crimes, but those reporting to her aren't so quick to trust her, especially given her involvement in the Internal Affairs investigation of their former leader.
Raydor's biggest challenge in the office may come from Det. Provenza (G.W. Bailey), who is initially less than confident of her ability to run the show. Also continuing from The Closer: Tony Denison as Lt. Flynn, Michael Paul Chan as Lt. Tao, Raymond Cruz as Det. Sanchez, Phillip P. Keene as Watson, Robert Gossett as Commander Taylor and Jon Tenney as Fritz, while Kearran Giovanni joins the Major Crimes unit as ambitious undercover detective Amy Sykes and Graham Patrick Martin will play a homeless teen named Rusty, who becomes involved with the squad in The Closer series finale.
The premiere of Major Crimes airs Monday, August 13 at 10/9c on TNT.
