Yesterday, USA Network announced its slate of returning hit series for this summer, with most premiering in June and July. (The network said that White Collar Season 5 would be coming in the fall, so fans of that show will have to wait a few extra months.) Among the returning fan-favorites on USA Network in Summer 2013 will be Burn Notice Season 7, Suits Season 3, Royal Pains Season 5, Necessary Roughness Season 3 and Covert Affairs Season 4.
Burn Notice Season 7: Thursdays at 9pm ET starting June 6. The spy thriller returns, uncovering the details of the mysterious deal that Michael (Jeffrey Donovan) struck in the Season 6 finale. This situation pushes Michael into new and daunting territory and brings him face-to-face with some formidable friends and foes from his past. As the repercussions of the deal become increasingly dangerous and complex, Michael will enlist the help of Fiona (Gabrielle Anwar), Sam (Bruce Campbell) and Jesse (Coby Bell). Sharon Gless also costars. Recurring guest stars in Burn Notice Season 7 include Adrian Pasdar, Jack Coleman and Stephen Martines.
In a May 10 release, USA Network confirmed that Burn Notice Season 7 will be the last season for the show, with network co-president Jeff Wachtel promising “a spectacular series finale.”
Royal Pains Season 5: Wednesdays at 9pm ET starting June 12. After spending the winter recuperating from brain surgery, Hank (Mark Feuerstein) is ready to return to work on the first weekend of summer – or so he thinks. With their Hamptons medical concierge service, HankMed, busier than ever and Boris’ (recurring guest star Campbell Scott) death still a mystery, Hank finds himself relying on Jeremiah (new series regular Ben Shenkman) in a very surprising way. Evan’s (Paulo Costanzo) rescue of an influential neighbor (recurring guest star Frances Conroy) has unexpected consequences for his future. Paige’s (Brooke D’Orsay) work at an auction house gives her an eye-opening look into Boris’ estate. A newly single Divya (Reshma Shetty) finds her plan to focus solely on work hitting an unexpected snag after the return of an ex. And a change in ownership at the local hospital brings new complications for HankMed. Callum Blue will recur in Royal Pains Season 5 as Milos, Boris’ cousin.
Necessary Roughness Season 3: Wednesdays at 10pm ET starting June 12. Necessary Roughness Season 3 picks up six months after the New York Hawks’ playoff run at the end of Season 2. Big changes at the team force Dani (Callie Thorne), TK (Mehcad Brooks) and Matt (Marc Blucas) to reconsider their futures with the franchise. After Dani’s success with TK and the New York Hawks, a powerful sports and entertainment management agency run by the seductive Connor McClane (John Stamos) makes her a promising offer to join his firm. The new job could help to launch Dani to the next professional level – but at what cost? TK struggles under the reign of a new coach. After a long absence, Nico (Scott Cohen) resurfaces in a surprising place, complicating life for Dani. Along with John Stamos, Necessary Roughness Season 3 welcomes David Anders and Karissa Lee Staples to the cast.
Covert Affairs Season 4: Tuesdays at 9pm ET starting July 16. The spy drama is back, with Piper Perabo as Annie Walker. The season kicks off after Annie and her longtime best friend and blind CIA tech-op, Auggie (Christopher Gorham), finally acknowledge their romantic feelings for one another. Things get complicated at the agency, as Annie aligns with Henry Wilcox (guest star Gregory Itzin) in a dangerous undercover mission that has potentially scandalous consequences for the CIA. Joining the cast of Covert Affairs Season 4 is Hill Harper (CSI: NY), who will play Calder Michaels, an ambitious CIA station chief based in Latin America.
Suits Season 3: Tuesdays at 10pm ET starting July 16. The critically acclaimed legal drama returns with a shift in dynamics at the firm. In Suits Season 3, after merging with a top British firm, Harvey Specter (Gabriel Macht) is at odds with his boss and mentor, Jessica Pearson (Gina Torres), and forces Mike (Patrick J. Adams) to do something he never thought possible – betray Harvey. Meanwhile, things with Mike and Rachel (Meghan Markle) get more complicated after Mike finally reveals his secret that he never actually went to Harvard – and they cross a line that can never be uncrossed.
