Major Crimes Season 3: Which Family Will Rusty Choose?

Major Crimes' third season will be a family affair.

Not only does the case in the premiere (Monday, 9/8c, TNT) involve two children who have gone missing with their father while everyone in Major Crimes points the finger at the mother, but it also sets up a season that explores what "family" truly means.

Major Crimes scoop: Meet Rusty's mom! Plus: Boss on possible Fritz spin-off

"The theme of our first 10 episodes this season is expectations," creator James Duff tells TVGuide.com. "We have an expectation of a lot of things in our lives that it turns out that we have no right to expect. Family is not a given. Family is something you are sometimes obligated to create for yourself and that you embark upon with other people."

Indeed, over the first two seasons, Capt. Sharon Raydor...read more

Major Crimes Creator James Duff Previews the Season 2 Finale

Finally, we have come to the end of our second season. Major Crimes will not only finish up business it started last week, but also answer some questions it asked last November, last summer and last year. The manner in which identity and character combine to form human nature - our nineteen episode theme — will, of course, remain a mystery, but we have framed our inquiry as well as we could.

Part of that frame involves dramatizing how two boys from similar circumstances could have turned out so differently.  I won't give away our ending — I've never wanted to use this opportunity to present spoilers — but it won't take long to spot the numerous similarities between Rusty and his would-be murderer: both abandoned, both abused as teenagers, both affected by the addiction and drug problems of their respective mothers, and the comparisons do not end there.  They see themselves in each other, yet every resemblance is superficial....read more

Major Crimes' Mary McDonnell on Turning Capt. Raydor into the Hero

Major Crimes star Mary McDonnell still isn't exactly sure how she ended up as the star of TNT's newest cop drama.

Fall Preview: Get scoop on all your favorite returning shows

The Battlestar Galactica alum first stepped into Capt. Sharon Raydor's shoes during The Closer's fifth season, when her Internal Affairs investigation put her at odds with Brenda Leigh Johnson (Kyra Sedgwick) and her team. Three years later, Brenda is gone and Raydor is now leading the squad on the spin-off Major Crimes.

"I've never had something grow this way," McDonnell tells TVGuide.com... read more

Review: Exit The Closer, Enter Major Crimes

One of the things I'll miss most about Brenda Leigh Johnson is her sweet tooth: that secret compulsion and most shameful addiction indulged by the Deputy Chief of the LAPD's Major Crimes Division whenever she reaches for that overstuffed top desk drawer, a Pavlovian response to the nerve-wracking stress of her high-profile job. In a more typical L.A. crime story, the hard-driving boss reveals a weakness for booze. With Brenda, it's the soothing waft of chocolate when she peels back the foil from a Ding Dong, savoring the guilty pleasure.

TNT Says Goodbye to The Closer, Hello to Major Crimes

On Monday, The Closer's Brenda Leigh Johnson will hear her final confession. But TNT's Closer spin-off Major Crimes should be able to keep you from grief-eating a dozen Ding Dongs.

The Closer winds down: Who can Brenda trust?

The Closer
's series finale finds Brenda (Kyra Sedgwick) trying to put away slippery defense attorney — and suspected serial rapist —Phillip Stroh (Billy Burke) once and for all. And although the climax of the Stroh storyline heavily impacts Brenda's future, it's the introduction of another character — an orphaned teenage hustler named Rusty (Graham Patrick Martin) — that may ultimately prove to be most important. So much so that he'll also be a focal point of Major Crimes... read more

On the Set: Secrets of The Closer Finale

Last December, Kyra Sedgwick could be found conducting one of her hissing interrogations, the kind riveting enough to win her a Lead Actress Emmy; the kind she usually performs in a tiny, unadorned room at LAPD headquarters. Only, for "The Last Word," the 109th and final episode ever of TNT's hit procedural The Closer, Sedgwick's Deputy Police Chief Brenda Leigh Johnson is prying information out of a terrified witness while standing in a puffy black parka and thick beige scarf in a remote, windy part of Griffith Park.
