USA Network’s longest running original drama BURN NOTICE, consistently one of cable’s top scripted series, today received a 13-episode pickup for its seventh season. In 2013, the Emmy-nominated series will join an elite group as the third show in the network’s history to reach 100 episodes. This pick-up completes the renewals of summer’s most successful block on television following the recent third season order of USA original SUITS.
“BURN NOTICE is like a fine wine that gets better with age,” said USA Network Co-Presidents Chris McCumber and Jeff Wachtel. “Delivering high-octane action, gripping drama and nearly 7 million viewers for the mid-season finale, this veteran series is a proven staple of our portfolio.”
Fast-paced spy thriller BURN NOTICE follows the formerly black-listed spy Michael Westen (Jeffrey Donovan), currently working under-the-radar with the CIA on special projects. Michael’s eclectic team includes ex-IRA operative and girlfriend Fiona (Gabrielle Anwar), washed up former Navy Seal Sam (Bruce Campbell), ex-counter-intelligence agent Jesse (Coby Bell), and Michael’s mother – honorary member Madeline (Emmy® winner Sharon Gless).
As the second half of the series sixth season returns on Thursday, November 8 at 9 p.m. ET/PT with a special two-hour premiere, the team is stranded in Panama and desperate to find a way back to Miami
