Angie Harmon plays the role of homicide detective Jane Rizzoli alongside Sasha Alexander’s role as medical examiner Maura Isles.
TNT has recently undergone some management revamping. New boss Kevin Reilly reportedly prefers both edgier shows, as well as those that develop episode by episode. Rizzoli & Isles features individual stories that begin and ended in each episode.
“It had a good run,” Reilly said on Thursday. “It felt like it was time.”

Angie Harmon’s initial claim to fame came during her work as a fashion model. Her first big acting job was in Law & Order.
Sasha Alexander is a Dawson’s Creek alum, on which she played the role of Gretchen Witter. She starred for the first two seasons of NCIS as Special Agent Kate Todd.
Are you a Rizzoli & Isles fan? Are you disappointed to learn that Angie Harmon and Sasha Alexander have but one summer season left to star in these roles?
