The sixth and final season of Major Crimes begins tonight, October 31st, but will it for sure be the end? Recently, creator James Duff spoke with TVLine about what to expect from the TV show’s final season.
As reported earlier, TNT has cancelled the crime drama after six seasons. The series follows the further investigations of the detectives in the Los Angeles Police Department’s Major Crimes division. Stars include 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.
In the interview, Duff revealed the Major Crimes series finale does leave the door open for more:
Since I didn’t actually know for sure it was the [series] finale, there is an open door… It’s sort of a defiant ending, I would say, but an honest, truthful ending.”
As for the rest of the season, Duff mentioned this season contains some of the cast’s best performances yet:
I gave Mary [McDonnell] something extraordinary to play, because she wanted to do something special. She has been one of my partners throughout this process, so we decided on something interesting and different for her to play.”
We increased the size of G.W. [Bailey]’s role [as Provenza]. It is an interesting story that we’re telling [with Sharon], and Mary does an amazing job — her best work in the series is this season, and so is G.W.’s. A lot of the characters turn in spectacular performances.”
The sixth and final season of Major Crimes premieres tonight, October 31st, at 9 p.m. ET/PT on TNT.
