"The Closer," which is enjoying growth this year as it continues to rank as ad-supported cable's number-one series of all time, stars Kyra Sedgwick as Deputy Police Chief Brenda Leigh Johnson, head of the LAPD's Major Crimes unit.
In addition to Sedgwick's newest Emmy, the show has also earned three SAG Award nominations for Outstanding Ensemble in a Drama Series for Sedgwick, Corey Reynolds, G.W. Bailey, Tony Denison, Raymond Cruz, Michael Paul Chan and Phillip P. Keene, as well as Jon Tenney, J.K. Simmons and Robert Gossett.
This season, Brenda and her squad tackled cases involving a sniper shooting in a posh neighborhood, a possible serial rapist who used a stun gun to immobilize his victims and a drug-related custody battle that ended in two deaths.
Detective Sanchez (Cruz) struggled to care for a young boy involved in a case the squad investigated last year. And Lt. Provenza (Bailey), Brenda’s second-in-command, once again found himself in a professionally embarrassing situation when a one-night stand with a flight attendant leads to the discovery of a dead body in her bathtub.
The season finale, "An Ugly Game," premieres tonight at 9/8c. Find out more HERE!
