Where is Corey Reynolds today, after leaving The Closer?

Corey Reynolds, who played Sgt. David Gabriel on The Closer, left the show in 2012 after seven seasons and moved to the broadcasting side and signed a deal with NBC.

The Closer is an American television police procedural which aired on TNT from Monday, 13 June 2005, to Monday, 13 August 2012. The series was created by James Duff and the Shepard/Robin Company in association with Warner Bros. Television.

Reynolds’ character, Gabriel, was a sergeant in the Los Angeles Police Department’s (LAPD) Priority Homicide Division. He got promoted to detective during season five of the series. He was Deputy Chief, Brenda Leigh Johnson’s right-hand man.

A continuation spin-off show of The Closer, Major Crimes premiered on TNT on 13 August 2012, following The Closer’s finale. The spin-off is set in the same police division but is headed by Mary McDonnell’s character, Sharon Raydor. The series aired from August 2012 to January 2018, with a total of 105 episodes.

Reynolds was given the opportunity to star in the spin-off show but declined the offer. When asked why he declined the offer, he stated that after seven years in one character’s shoes, it was time to do something else. His goal as an actor is to play as many characters as he can, and he claimed that the show was limiting what he was able to do with Gabriel.

Reynolds was seen in a lot of different series after The Closer, including Chicago PD in 2014, SEAL Team in 2015, and The Red Line in 2019. He also portrays Mike Thompson in Resident Alien, which premiered on Wednesday, 27 January, 2021.

His latest project is a short film, North Star, where he serves as the executive producer. The film follows a rancher, James, fighting to care for his sickly husband, Craig. The film explores family related drama as Craig’s sister, Erin, argues to take her brother away to live the rest of his short life with her family and not with James. The 20-minute film will premiere on Wednesday, 15 September 2021.
