'The Closer' May Live After All, Without Kyra Sedgwick


'The Closer' May Live After All, Without Kyra Sedgwick
Leaving out Deputy Chief Brenda Leigh Johnson is one of the three options that TNT may take to keep its strongest original show alive.


Although TNT and Kyra Sedgwick have both confirmed in December 2010 that the seventh season of "The Closer" will be its last, there's a hope that the show is not ending after all. TV Line and Deadline which are first to report, heard from a few sources that TNT is looking forward to continue the show with several possibilities.

The first one is to extend the final season, ordering additional episodes from 15 to 21 while Sedgwick is still attached by contract. Secondly, the executives may open a whole new chapter which doesn't involve Sedgwick's character, very much like how "The Office" would continue without Steve Carell. The last option is to create a spin-off featuring the show's other characters in different settings.

Deadline said, TNT could be ordering 9 episodes for the last two options. Indeed it was Sedgwick's desire to leave after her contract expires at the end of season 7. The show was doing well rating-wise and remains the most-watched basic cable series of all time.

A TNT spokesperson has not responded.
