The Closer star Kyra Sedgwick will hand in her police badge when the hit TV series wraps next year.
The actress’ portrayal of Los Angeles Police Department Deputy Chief Brenda Leigh Johnson earned her a Golden Globe and an Emmy Award earlier this year, but she has decided to bring the show to an end after its upcoming seventh season.

She says, “I cannot fathom how difficult it will be to say goodbye to the incredible family we’ve created on The Closer…

“I want to thank TNT and Warner Bros. Television, as well as the incredible fans of The Closer, for all of their unwavering support over the last seven years.”
