“Rescue Me” will conclude its run on Sept. 6

Hollywoodnews.com: “Rescue Me” began as a tribute to the brave service men and women who fought had and gave their lives on Sept. 11, so it’s fitting the show should come to a close near the anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
That’s the plan revealed by FX, which says that the Sept. 6 episode of Denis Leary’s fire-fighter drama would be its last.
Rescue Me was created in 2004 by Leary and Peter Tolan, who also serve as executive producers and head writers. It mainly focuses on Leary’s character, Tommy Gavin, and his dysfunctional family.
The show’s seventh season begins in July, and the show will end after 93 episoes. Seems strange that they don’t want to push it to 100, to ensure syndication, but it’s always a good idea to go out on a high note. Here’s hoping Leary and “Rescue Me” manage that.
