The Closer Will End After Seven Seasons

TNT is saying "Thank yew very much" to The Closer. Thank you and goodnight, that is.

The network has announced the hit series will end after its upcoming seventh season, which will air 15 episodes next year. Since 2005, the Emmy-winning Kyra Sedgwick vehicle has been a tentpole show for TNT.

"I cannot fathom how difficult it will be to say goodbye to the incredible family we've created on The Closer," Sedgwick said. "I will always be grateful to [series creator] 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."
