It’s no secret that I am a huge fan of The Closer. I love the characters, especially Brenda Leigh Johnson, played by Kyra Sedgwick. I love that we got to meet a heroine who married a real hero-type of man and who has a solid, loving marriage. I love the humor. The summer season will end this coming Monday, and I’m hoping there will be some closer to the current story line (the lawsuit) so that waiting until the end of November won’t be so hard.
Here’s a bit of related news for other fans:
The Kyra Sedgwick procedural, in the middle of its seventh and final season, will push out five more episodes in its fall/winter run, and wrap up with six episodes in summer 2012.
The information on six episodes next summer came as a delightful surprise to me. Knowing this was the final season, I thought it would officially end in December. So now I don’t have to mourn the end of this show until next July or August. Yea!
A spin off starring Mary McDonnell as Captain Sharon Raydor has been picked up by TNT. The title is Major Crimes. I wasn’t very keen on the idea when I first heard it. But this summer season has slowly changed my mind. I’m liking her more and more. She isn’t the baddie she was made out to be. Now I’m eager to know what they are going to do with her. What job is she going to have by the end of The Closer? I’m sure it won’t be Brenda Leigh’s position (no one can close a case the way Brenda can), although the title of the show does imply that it could be. Hmm.
Are you a fan of The Closer? What do you hope will happen in the final twelve episodes?
