TNT Renews 'The Librarians' and 'Major Crimes'; Cancels 'Legends,' 'Public Morals' and 'Agent X'

TNT has renewed its original drama series The Librarians and Major Crimes for third and fifth seasons, respectively. The Librarians will return in Fall 2016 for 15 more episodes while Major Crimes will be back for 10 more episodes in Summer 2016.

Based on TNT's hit movie franchise, The Librarians centers on an ancient organization dedicated to protecting an unknowing world from the secret, magical reality hidden all around.

The drama stars Rebecca Romijn, Christian Kane, Lindy Booth, John Kim and John Larroquette, with special guest star Noah Wyle.

The Librarians is currently averaging 5.5 million total viewers per episode across TNT's Video on Demand, digital and mobile platforms. The series is produced by Electric Entertainment, with executive producers, Dean Devlin, John Rogers, Marc Roskin and Noah Wyle.

Major Crimes centers on a special unit of Los Angeles Police Department detectives responsible for investigating high-profile crimes.

The drama stars Mary McDonnell, G.W. Bailey, Tony Denison, Michael Paul Chan, Raymond Cruz, Phillip P. Keene, Kearran Giovanni, Jonathan Del  Arco, Robert Gossett and Graham Patrick Martin.

In its fourth season, Major Crimes is averaging 10 million total viewers per episode across TNT's linear, mobile and digital platforms. The series is produced by The Shephard/Robin Company and Walking Entropy, Inc., in association with Warner Bros. Television. James Duff, Greer Shephard, Michael M. Robin, Rick Wallace, Adam Belanoff and Leo Geter serve as executive producers.

The network has also made firm decisions on the remaining shows on its scheduling - canceling dramas Legends, Public Morals and Agent X. All three were very likely cancelled due to weak performance in the ratings. Public Morals and Agent X both produced one season while Legends did two for the network.
