White Collar, Covert Affairs And Royal Pains Renewed By USA
Three of USA’s top summer series have been given their renewal orders today. Returning next summer for your viewing pleasure are White Collar, Royal Pains, and Covert Affairs. Royal Pains is the big winner with a vote of confidence from the network in the form of a 26-episode two-season order that will bring the drama up to 6 seasons.
White Collar will get another 16-episode season, making the fifth for that series, while relatively young Covert Affairs has been renewed for a fourth season, says TVLine. The three dramas are the cornerstone of USA’s summer programming, although this year they’re all popping up throughout the fall and winter. Royal Pains has a two-hour holiday movie planned. Covert Affairs' current third season will resume on October 16th and complete its run in November. And White Collar is scheduled to continue season 4 in January. Which really means none of them is truly a summer series in the end. The network does seem to be planning to bring them back for next summer, in spite of somewhat erratic schedules for the current seasons.
USA will have a busy summer schedule come 2013 it seems. They’re also planning to premiere their new drama Graceland, which happens to come from White Collar’s creator Jeff Eastin. It will be a while before we see premiere dates for any of the anticipated summer series on USA, but in the meantime you can mark your calendars for Off-Season Greetings, the Royal Pains movie, which airs December 16th, and White Collar’s return to the air scheduled for January 4th.
