Morning Brew – “Rizzoli & Isles” will end after Season 7


Good morning! Happy Friday!

First, some news out of TCA. The upcoming Season 7 of Rizzoli & Isles will be its last. TNT network exec Kevin Reilly said of Sasha Alexander and Angie Harmon

I think both ladies have had a really satisfying experience, and sort of indicated that look, I don’t know that they wouldn’t do any more, but I think they felt very comfortable. The producers felt that way. It’s had a good run. It felt like it was time, and we all kind of discussed it, and everyone said, “Yeah, let’s go out, finish 13 great ones, and call it a day.” Everybody felt good about that.


Comedy Central picked up Broad City for two more seasons and Inside Amy Schumer for another. Let’s hope both keep their queer vibes.

Carol screenwriter Phyllis Nagy talked with The Frame A quote:

“I find that it’s really truthful in human relationship that people don’t sit around obsessing about the nature of their feelings. In the case of Therese and Carol, there’s a lot of outside obstacles that they have to overcome. The thing that is pure, and that I felt absolutely had to remain pure in the script, is the lack of banal psychologizing about the state of being gay or indeed the state of being in love. “
