'Burn Notice' Renewed: USA Picks Up Drama For 13-Episode Seventh Season

USA Renews 'Burn Notice'

USA has renewed its longest-running drama, "Burn Notice," for a 13-episode seventh season, the network announced Wednesday.

The 13 episode pick-up makes for a slightly abridged season in comparison with the 18-episode orders seen over the last three seasons, but will still see the drama safely to its milestone 100th installment.

“'Burn Notice' is like a fine wine that gets better with age,” said USA Network Co-Presidents Chris McCumber and Jeff Wachtel in a statement. “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.”

According to the network, the pairing of "Burn Notice" and "Suits" was the most successful block on television this summer, attracting more adults 25-54, 18-49 and 18-34 than any other duo of scripted series.

"Burn Notice" joins previously-renewed "Royal Pains," "White Collar," "Covert Affairs" and "Suits" as a lock for next season, along with the network's new crime drama "Graceland." Sadly, "Fairly Legal," "Common Law" and "Political Animals" failed to make the cut and were recently cancelled, while the fate of "Necessary Roughness" is still up in the air.

"Burn Notice" returns to finish its sixth season on Thurs., Nov. 8 at 9 p.m. ET on USA. Watch a sneak peek from the two-hour return here.
