Major Crimes takes television's favourite squad of detectives - known to viewers from the hit series The Closer - into bold new territory with this hit crime drama that ranked as basic cable's #1 new series of 2012. Now Major Crimes is back on the case for a thrilling second season as two-time Oscar® nominee Mary McDonnell continues as Captain Sharon Raydor, head of the Los Angeles Police Department's Major Crimes division, joined by an unforgettable ensemble cast: G.W. Bailey, Tony Denison, Michael Paul Chan, Raymond Cruz, Phillip P. Keene, Kearran Giovanni, Graham Patrick Martin, Jonathan Del Arco and Nadine Velazquez, with Robert Gossett as Assistant Chief Russell Taylor.
As the second season opens, the team 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 high-speed car chase that leads to a triple homicide. Just as the squad seems to be adjusting to last year's leadership change, however, Deputy District Attorney Emma Rios (new series star Velazquez) arrives to challenge Raydor's intentions and shake up the department. Torn between what is right morally and what the law commands, Raydor and her team face more personal and professional struggles than ever as they continue to make deals and crack cases.
