When the popular actor “didn’t show up to work on TNT’s” “Rizzoli & Isles,” it was clear that he had been killed. The show’s last episode has been shot.
Lee Thompson Young killed himself, which was the reason for his death. He was the star of Rizzoli & Isles on TNT and The Famous Jett Jackson on Disney for a total of three years. Today, he turned “29.
LAPD officer Sally Madera told the Associated Press that Young’s body was found at his North Hollywood home on Monday after he didn’t show up for work on the TNT crime thriller where he played Barry Frost with Angie Harmon and Sasha Alexander”. She said that she had called the Los Angeles Fire Department and that they told her he was dead right away.
The series has finished filming as of today. It was extended “last week along with TNT’s other summer” originals. Since the writers need time to deal with Young’s death, it’s hard to say when the show will start up again. The network has confirmed, THR’s sources say, that Young will be back for regular shows.
In 2019, the fifth season of Rizzoli will start. On average, 8.4 million people watched the season, which is 6% more than the year before. Season 4 will end on September 10, 2014, and the second part of the season will start back up in the beginning of 2014. The fifth season will have 15 episodes.
The following comment was made by TNT, Warner Bros., and Janet Tamaro, who runs the Rizzoli & Isles show:
We’re all sad to hear that Lee Thompson Young has died here at Rizzoli & Isles. We are so saddened by the loss of such a smart, kind, and happy man. He fit in well with the rest of us, so that’s how we treated him. Lee’s fans, both on and off screen, will remember him warmly for his endless energy, charisma, and true elegance. We are very sorry and will pray for all of his friends and family, especially his beloved mother.
“It makes me very sad to tell you that Lee Thompson Young killed himself this morning,” said Jonathan Baruch, who had been Young’s boss for a long time. Lee was a good-looking young man with a bright future ahead of him, but we all miss him.
