'Major Crimes' Renewed: TNT Orders Season 2

Captain Sharon Raydor is staying on the beat because TNT has renewed "Major Crimes" for a second season.

"With 'Major Crimes,' James Duff and his amazing production team have crafted an incredibly entertaining show that not only honors the spirit of The Closer, but also stands alone with its own voice and spirit," said Michael Wright, president and head of programming for TNT, TBS and Turner Classic Movies (TCM), said in a statement. "Week after week, 'Major Crimes' has drawn millions of fans with its combination of sharp writing and engaging characters brought to life by what can only be described as one of the best acting ensembles on television. We look forward to another season of this remarkable new drama."

Mary McDonnell stars in "The Closer" spinoff as Captain Raydor, the head of LAPD's Major Crimes unit. The series, which averages about 7 million viewers, follows Raydor and her squad of detectives as they solve high-profile cases.

TNT launched three new dramas this summer and renewed all of them. "Dallas" and "Perception" previously got the green light for new seasons.

Season 2 of "Major Crimes" is scheduled to debut summer 2013.
