The drama behind the drama, The Closer is becoming more interesting. Since we last talked about the final season of the Closer, some more developments have taken place. First, the 15 episode season has been extended to 21…yeah!!!! Second, the reason for the extended episodes will not only give us more The Closer with Kyra and wrap up storylines, but will set up the new spinoff for the show. Which leads to development three, the spinoff is happening.
Right now it doesn’t seem like there is any confirmation on who will be on the new spinoff, what it is about, or how much of the cast of the Closer will be joining the spinoff. My guess would be, Flynn and Provenza are definitely part of the spinoff plan. Much of the cast was interviewed about it at the SAG awards and many of them, such as Corey Reynolds (Sgt Gabriel) and Tony Denison (Flynn), talked about how much they would like to keep going in some capacity.
As I mentioned before, I am torn. I love everyone in the cast. They all have great chemistry and I would like to see them on my TV together again. I just don’t know if it would be difficult to watch them and not think, where is Brenda? They would need to get someone amazing that is nothing like Brenda and go a complete different route to make it work. I don’t know if they can but I would be willing to give it a chance. So I am cautiously optimistic about the idea of a The Closer spinoff.
How about you? Do you like the idea or think the show should just end next season on a high note?
