USA is ready to launch this summer's lineup of programming, which includes both returning hits and the launch of two new programs. The network has set premiere dates for the return of Suits, Covert Affairs, Royal Pains, Necessary Roughness and Burn Notice, along with the launches of a new drama, Graceland, and a reality series called Summer Camp.
Burn Notice will kick off it’s seventh season on June 6th, bringing the series to 100 episodes, which is a big milestone for any TV show. It’s an especially big milestone for a cable drama that has shorter seasons than the average network show, since the syndication goal takes longer to reach. Burn Notice will also provide the lead-in for the new drama from White Collar creator Jeff Easton on the same night. Starring Daniel Sunjata (Rescue Me) and Aaron Tveit (Les Miserables), Graceland is based on a true story about a group of undercover operatives living in the same home.
Premiering on June 12th, Royal Pains will enter Season 5 with a few new guest stars on board, including Frances Conroy (American Horror Story) and Callum Blue (The Tudors). The show will be followed by the third season premiere of Necessary Roughness, which was the last of USA’s summer series to be renewed early this year.
Fans will have to wait it out until July for the return of Suits and Covert Affairs , which are set to premiere their third and fourth seasons respectively on July 16th. Wrapping up the summer premiere list is the new reality series, Summer Camp, which will follow 16 adults heading off to a lakeside camp to compete in games inspired by those many of us remember from our own summer camp experiences. This one doesn’t have an exact date, yet, but will launch in July.
As for USA’s hit White Collar and their new singing competition The Choir, those will premiere in the fall. The full rundown of the announced premiere dates and times are listed, below.
