Major Crimes follows the further investigations of the detectives in the Los Angeles Police Department’s Major Crimes division. The crime drama’s cast includes Mary McDonnell, Tony Denison, GW Bailey, Michael Paul Chan, Raymond Cruz, Robert Gossett, Phillip P. Keene, Graham Patrick Martin, Kearran Giovanni, and Jonathan Del Arco.
Airing on Monday nights, the fourth season of Major Crimes is currently averaging a 0.54 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 3.73 million viewers (per the live + same day ratings). Compared to season three, that’s down by 27% in the demo. Still, the crime drama continues to be one of TNT’s highest-rated scripted series.
There have been rumors that the series might be cancelled and creator James Duff has maintained they aren’t true. However, we now know that TNT has ordered only 13 episodes for Summer 2016 — the series’ smallest episode order since season one. That certainly doesn’t sound like a good sign for the show’s future but we’ll have to wait and see.
Fellow TNT series The Librarians (season three) and Murder in the First (season three) were also officially renewed today.
