Cancelled by TNT, Major Crimes is building towards its “big-ass series finale,” but creator James Duff has warned fans not to expect full closure.
Speaking to TVLine, Duff admits the final episode leaves an “open door” to a seventh season that will never happen, barring a future revival:
“You’re getting one that is surprising, funny, satisfying…. Since I didn’t actually know for sure it was the [series] finale, there is an open door…. It’s sort of a defiant ending, I would say, but an honest, truthful ending.”
On the process of mapping out what would become the show’s final season:
“I did not know it was the final season; I assumed it was. I didn’t feel like we were beyond the point of no return until Episode 6, and even then I didn’t want to say anything, because its not my job to. Plus, you’re always hoping for a reprieve of some kind. And we didn’t get one.”
The series finale of Major Crimes airs Jan. 16, 2017 on TNT.
Are you looking forward to the end of Major Crimes? Was the show cancelled too soon? Fearing a lack of resolution? Already hoping for a future revival series?
