TNT has shaken up its line-up, giving three of its original drama series renewals whilst choosing to cancel three others.
The good news was handed out to “Major Crimes,” “The Librarians” and “Murder in the First” which each scored renewals. ‘Librarians’ and ‘Murder’ will each score a ten episode third season to screen next year – in the winter and summer respectively.
‘Crimes’ is getting a smaller order for its fifth season, dropping to 13 episodes which is down from the 19 episodes of its second and third and the super-size 23 episode order for its fourth season which the network will still be burning through in February/March next year.
Not faring so well were the Sean Bean-led “Legends,” Ed Burns’ period cop drama “Public Morals,” and the Sharon Stone-led spy drama “Agent X”. All three have been effectively cancelled due to low ratings – each pulling well under two million viewers in Live+3 ratings. “Legends” and “Agent X” will end their currently airing runs the week after Christmas.
