TNT Renews 'Rizzoli & Isles' for Season 6

After lengthy negotiations with Warner Horizon Television, TNT has officially ordered a sixth season of hit drama Rizzoli & Isles starring Angie Harmon and Sasha Alexander. Season 5 will continue on February 17, 2015. Season 6 will then debut in Summer 2015.

The episode order for Season 6 has been increased to 18 episodes - the largest tally for a season of Rizzoli & Isles yet.

Based on characters created by best-selling crime novelist Tess Gerritsen and developed for television by Janet Tamaro, Rizzoli & Isles stars Harmon as Jane Rizzoli, a tough-as-nails Boston police detective, and Alexander as Maura Isles, a smart, impeccably dressed medical examiner from a privileged background. Despite being complete opposites, the two women share an offbeat chemisty, an authentic and deep friendship and a unique working relationship that together, helps them to solve the most complex murder mysteries in the city of Boston.

Jordan Bridges, Bruce McGill, Idara Victor and Lorraine Bracco also star.

Jan Nash currently serves as executive producer/showrunner. Additional executive producers include Tamaro, Bill Haber, Jeff Hayes and Michael M. Robin. Warner Horizon Television, Ostar Productions and Hurdler Productions produce.
