Good news for fans of TNT’s The Closer series. It’s been renewed for a seventh season on the cable channel.
The Closer stars Kyra Sedgwich as Los Angeles Deputy Chief Brenda Johnson, a beautiful lady who means business. The rest of the cast includes Corey Reynolds, G.W. Bailey, Gina Ravera, J.K. Simmons, Jon Tenney, Michael Paul Chan, Phillip P. Keene, Raymond Cruz, Robert Gossett, and Tony Denison.
Currently in its sixth season, The Closer is reportedly averaging 7.1 million viewers per week and that’s a 7% increase over year five. The show’s been either the top or one of the top-rated cable shows since its return on July 12th.
To no surprise, TNT has renewed the series for year seven. The cable channel has once again ordered 15 episodes and they’ll start airing sometime in 2011.
The 15 episodes of season six are still airing. The first ten are scheduled to finish airing on September 13th. TNT typically breaks up the season so the remaining five will probably run in either late this year or in early 2011.
What do you think? Are you glad to hear that The Closer will be back for year seven? How long do you think the series should continue?
