This will make The Closer fans happy.
TNT has extended the show's final season to six additional episodes to prepare for a possible spin-off.
The previously announced 10 episode will air in summer and then, to make fans wait, 5 more will air in the winter and the final six in the summer of 2012.
Way to stretch a season!
The final season will introduce a new central character, which will be the focus of the show's spin-off, titled Major Crimes.
So far, sources say that the final season will evolve into a gritty drama that focuses on what happens when criminals aren't sent to Death Row, which will ultimately pave the way for Kyra Sedgwick's Brenda to leave the show.
What do U think, Closer fans? Excited for a spin-off? Or the show just have its final swan song?
