USA Renews ‘White Collar,’ ‘Covert Affairs’ and ‘Royal Pains’
You know, say what you will about the myriad of programming on USA that sometimes slips beneath the radar, they sure do have staying power. Plenty of USA series remain on the bubble, but at least for the moment fans of con-man drama ‘White Collar,’ spy drama ‘Covert Affairs,’ and rich doctor drama ‘Royal Pains’ have it made in the shade with additional episode orders. Just how long will the new seasons be, and what’s still missing from the line-up?
Good news, USA fans! The network has officially announced that three of its strongest programs will live to see another day, renewing ‘White Collar,’ ‘Covert Affairs’ and ‘Royal Pains.’ Both ‘White Collar’ and ‘Cover Affairs’ will receive an additional 16 episodes each, comprising a fifth and fourth season respectively. ‘Royal Pains’ got the best deal of all, however, an impressive 26 episodes to bring the series to a sixth season.
Of course, ‘Common Law,’ ‘Necessary Roughness,’ ‘Political Animals‘ and ‘Fairly Legal’ have yet to be renewed, leaving at least eight fans on the edge of their seats. ‘Covert Affairs’ third season meanwhile continues Tuesday, October 16, while ‘White Collar‘s’ fourth season picks up again in January. ‘Royal Pains’ will air its two-hour winter movie, “Off-Season Greetings” on Sunday, December 16.
Well, what say you? Are you happy to have additional orders for ‘White Collar,’ ‘Covert Affairs’ and ‘Royal Pains’? Which of the others are you worried might not come back?
