Returns Monday, December 6 at 9/8 on TNT
"The Closer" is always an interesting show. I am excited that it
is returning soon.
TNT sent me a DVD screener of the December 6th episode. You don't want to miss
this one. Something exciting happens at the beginning (a crime) and then the
whole episode is about that. I can't tell you the details, sorry....but it is a
Then later on there is another shocker, somewhat unrelated to the first one. It
involves a possible career change.
This show always has a great cast, and outstanding guest stars, and this one is
no exception. Peter Paige of "Queer As Folk" appears as a great baddie. We also
see more of Mary McDonnell as Raydor. Awesome!
If you love good drama, you should definitely be watching "The Closer" because
it is one of the best dramas on TV and has been for quite a while. It is also a
great show for giving women strong roles.
Emmy Winner Kyra Sedgwick Is Back on the Case
As TNT’s Hit Series THE CLOSER Returns with Five New Episodes in December
Hot on the heels of its sizzling summer performance, TNT’s
blockbuster hit series THE CLOSER is ready to heat up December with five all-new
episodes starring newly crowned Emmy winner Kyra Sedgwick. The series, which
follows the investigations of Deputy Police Chief Brenda Leigh Johnson and the
LAPD’s Major Crimes Unit, returns Monday, Dec. 6, at 9 p.m. (ET/PT). THE
CLOSER’s sixth season will wrap up with a special two-part season finale on
December 27 and January 3.
With the dust still settling after the appointment of a new Chief of Police,
tensions are high within Major Crimes, with everyone convinced Brenda (Sedgwick)
will be promoted into the job currently held by her friend and longtime
colleague Will Pope (J.K. Simmons – Juno). Despite being pushed to take the job
by her husband, FBI Agent Fritz Howard (Jon Tenney – Brothers & Sisters), Brenda
prefers her current role of obtaining confessions and closing cases to being
stuck behind a desk.
Brenda’s cases this December include the ambush of one of her own detectives, a
seemingly minor robbery involving medical marijuana dispensaries and a race to
find a missing woman who may be in the hands of a violent drug dealer. In the
exciting two-part season finale, an immigrant family’s blood feud turns deadly,
putting everyone’s holiday plans on hold.
Corey Reynolds (The Terminal), Tony Denison (Prison Break), G.W. Bailey
(M*A*S*H), Michael Paul Chan (Arrested Development), Raymond Cruz (Breaking
Bad), Robert Gossett (Arlington Road) and Phillip P. Keene (The D.A.) round out
THE CLOSER’s extraordinary Screen Actors Guild Award®-nominated ensemble cast.
Returning guest stars this December include Mary McDonnell (Batlestar Galactica,
Dances with Wolves) as Captain Sharon Raydor, who heads up the Force
Investigation Division; Courtney B. Vance (ER, FlashForward) as Tommy Delk, Los
Angeles’ newly appointed Chief of Police; and Frances Sternhagen (ER, Sex and
the City) and Barry Corbin (No Country for Old Men, Northern Exposure) as
Brenda’s parents, whose holiday visit to Los Angeles includes a surprise
