TNT has renewed Rizzoli & Isles for an 18-episode sixth season. The show is slated to return during the summer of 2015.
Rizzoli & Isles ended this past summer as the No. 1 basic cable drama in total viewers and No. 2 program on basic cable with viewers age 25-54, behind fellow TNT show The Last Ship.
The buddy cop—and medical examiner— series, starring Angie Harmon and Sasha Alexander as the eponymous Rizzoli & Isles, respectively, reached 13.6 million viewers per episode in its fifth season when including multiplatform audiences.
The show is produced by Warner Horizon Television and executive producer Bill Haber’s Ostar Productions.
