Kyra Sedgwick to end The Closer after season 7.
TNT announced about three weeks ago that this coming 2011 season of The Closer, starring Kyra Sedgwick will be the last for the successful cable drama. TNT has some great shows and The Closer is one of them. Kyra is excellent as the intuitive Deputy Chief Brenda Leigh Johnson. This role won Kyra an Emmy in 2007. No matter what her reasons are for leaving the show, I do believe, unless she owns the show in some part, that the show can go on without her. I think they should let her character, Deputy Chief Johnson, find a replacement.
At least give the show one more season to prove that the actress replacing her can fill her shoes and keep the ratings high. Law & Order made it common practice to change district attorneys, police chiefs, and officers. Will anyone else beside myself be sad to see The Closer’s demise?
