‘Major Crimes’ season 5 spoilers: Show boss on overall theme for upcoming stories

Major Crimes -

The fifth season of “Major Crimes” is going to be coming your way starting on TNT Monday night, and we know that there is one significant theme you can expect to see right away. Things are not going to be the same as they were during the last part of season 4, even on a structural level. We’re going back to more of the show’s roots of taking on isolated cases, even though there are some further long-term stories that you are going to see play out in the process.

With that in mind, be prepared to see some stories play out when it comes to the characters’ personal lives over the course of the year. For example, we know that we will see Andy consider making a move, and we’ll probably continue to see many different dimensions of Rusty.

In setting up some of the particular stories that you can expect to see play out over the course of the year, show executive producer James Duff had the following to say, per the Atlanta Journal Constitution:

“We try to find balance in our professional and personal lives, between our friends and family, our virtual lives and our real lives, between our rational selves and our more primitive selves … Stories will hinge on that concept.”

Ultimately, we’re down for a much more personal “Major Crimes” season, especially when you consider for a minute here precisely how much time we have spent on other cop shows never really getting to know the characters away from work at all (we are looking at you “Criminal Minds”). This could be a chance to really get to know these characters that we have devoted so much time to.
