'The Closer' Coming to an End, Kyra Sedgwick Speaks


'The Closer' Coming to an End, Kyra Sedgwick Speaks
The actress who got her Golden Globe through this series said it is difficult to say goodbye to the 'family' but would be forever grateful for the opportunity.


"The Closer" is no more after this upcoming season. TNT, on Friday, December 10, announced that its long-running crime drama will not return beyond the seventh season that airs next year. Production of those final 15 episodes is scheduled to begin next spring.

"It's impossible to fully express our appreciation to Kyra Sedgwick, series creator James Duff and all of the other talented people who brought The Closer to TNT viewers," said Steve Koonin, president of Turner Entertainment Networks. "The Closer was a pivotal series in setting a new course for TNT's original programming, while also serving as a prime example of the storytelling strength possible on cable television."

In return Sedgwick said, "I cannot fathom how difficult it will be to say goodbye to the incredible family we've created on The Closer. I will always be grateful to James Duff for his love and friendship, as well as for creating such a rich and complex character who I have loved living with year after year. Mike, Greer, Rick and all of our outstanding cast and crew are forever in my heart. I want to thank TNT and Warner Bros. Television, as well as the incredible fans of The Closer, for all of their unwavering support over the last seven years."

"The Closer" began in 2005 and has delivered Sedgwick a Golden Globe in 2007. Currently in its sixth year, the drama is averaging more than 8 million viewers weekly. While the number is good, it only pulls 1.0 rating in the adult demo, which doesn't look good for advertisers.
