The 19 episode second season of TNT’s drama series Major Crimes will receive its UK premiere on Universal Channel on Monday August 5th at 9pm, it has been announced.
Created by James Duff, Major Crimes follows the major crimes unit of the LAPD following the departure of commanding officer Deputy Chief Brenda Johnson. With Johnson gone, the team must learn to adapt when Captain Raydor is transferred in from Internal Affairs to run the unit. More controversially, Captain Raydor and Assistant Chief Taylor mandate that the Major Crimes Unit, rather than attempting to score a confession as Deputy Chief Johnson did, will now enter into plea bargains with suspects. The drama series is produced by Warner Horizon Television and stars Mary McDonnell, G.W. Bailey, Tony Denison, Michael Paul Chan, Raymond Cruz, Phillip P. Keene, Kearran Giovanni and Graham Patrick Martin, with recurring guest stars Robert Gossett, Jon Tenney and Jonathan Del Arco. Nadine Velazquez (My Name Is Earl) joins the cast of the series for its second season as Deputy District Attorney Emma Rios.
As the second season opens, the Los Angeles Police Department’s Major Crimes division immediately dives into some of the most challenging and fascinating crimes yet, including the murder of a big-time film producer’s wife, an apparent murder-suicide and a LAPD ride-along that leads to a startling discovery. Right when the squad seemed to be adjusting to last year’s leadership change, a new Deputy District Attorney, Emma Rios (Velazquez), arrives to challenge Raydor’s intentions and shake up the department. Torn between what is morally right and what the law commands, Raydor and her team are faced with more struggles than ever as they continue to make deals and crack cases.
