TNT has finalized its plans for summer. The cable net said today that the seventh and final season of Rizzoli & Isles will premiere June 6, followed by Season 5 of Major Crimes on June 13. The dates follow last week’s announcements that TNT’s new drama Animal Kingdom will bow June 7. and The Last Ship‘s third voyage will shove off June 12.
The 13-episode Season 7 will be the final watch for Boston crimefighters Angie Harmon and Sasha Alexander in Rizzoli & Isles, which was a breakout hit and has been one of TNT’s most-watched series. “We felt it was time,” network president Kevin Reilly said at TCA in January. “Both ladies felt comfortable (about the decision); I think both Angie and Sasha had a satisfying experience. It’s had a good run.”
Major Crimes, which was renewed in December along with Murder in the First and The Librarians, revolves around a special unit of Los Angeles Police Department detectives responsible for investigating high-profile crimes. The ensemble cast includes Mary McDonnell, G.W. Bailey, Tony Denison, Michael Paul Chan, Raymond Cruz, Phillip P. Keene, Kearran Giovanni, Jonathan Del Arco. Robert Gossett and Graham Patrick Martin.
