I like the show as well and I like Mary McDonnell’s method of solving the cases. I HATED her on The Closer…but then as a protagonist…great acting! The writing gets bogged down at times with too much of the soap opera of the show, try scaling it back a bit on all the story lines. When it takes forever for a resolution, I get bored and go watch something else.

Please bring back Major Crimes. It is one of my favorite shows. I would like to know if it is coming back or not. Please let me know. Thanks

Major Crimes returns for a fourth season sometime in June. An exact return date hasn’t been released yet.

Just watched 3 full seasons of Major Crimes, and I suspect season 4 will be its last. This, like The Closer, are supposed to be crime dramas. Closer succeeded in a believable way, with some personal/human issues superimposed on the side, contrary to Major Crimes. McDonnell and Sedgwick played well off each other in Closer, but on her own, McDonnell is less believable as a cop. And to keep the same “Stroh/gay kid” story going now for 3 yrs – and counting – is a huge yawn. His finale escape simply predictable. Inter-play of characters inferior to Closer, though it’s nice to see “Fritz” making occasional appearances. Lastly, and not to be offensive, there’s an undercurrent of “LAPD supports the gay community; look at our staff”. My bet: In season 4, the new gay cop protecting Rusty is either working with Stroh or makes a play for Rusty. We need The Closer back. Also miss Sgt. Gabriel. Had high hopes.

I omitted the unbelievably of the ineffectual DA, or whatever, Rios. Maybe the writers can get some tips from the various Law & Order characters for authenticity.

I didn’t even know Major Crimes had started up again last month. I never saw it advertised. I really like this show and have watched every one since the Closer ended. I will have to go on On Demand to watch the 2 shows from Jan 12th.

Love the show , Love the cast. Too few shows have the ability to change the prime character and stay popular Please keep it on the air


BETH January 28, 2015 at 1:36 am

this is the first time I’ve shared my opinion regarding any program. I wish this program were on everyday. the characters have real human depth, they seem real to me sometimes, I never thought THE CLOSER could be beat but this show evolves, enhances, exposes the human being. please do not end something so moving & irreplaceable. thank you & have a peaceful day.

Why was a special master even appointed?


ROSE January 14, 2015 at 8:09 am

I love Major Crimes Please keep it going. My favorite show


Bonnie hobble January 13, 2015 at 10:33 pm

Leave rusty alone and keep him on the show


No more Rusty January 13, 2015 at 4:35 pm

Just kill off Rusty or send him away. Which kid spends all his time in a police station anyway. Annoying as hell!


Daryl February 12, 2015 at 6:16 pm

Couldn’t agree more. 3 yrs of that kid – and counting – is enough. Crime dramas are supposed to be just that; Major Crimes makes crime secondary to so many personal dramas. Initially, it was a tearful situation, but I’m not interested in seeing him graduate college.
