Deadline is reporting that USA has picked up the popular drama Burn Notice for a seventh season. Details below.
The deal to renew USA Network‘s veteran Burn Notice, which we reported last week as being negotiated, is now done. Burn Notice has been picked up for a 13-episode seventh season. The size of the pickup is smaller than the 16-episode Season 2 and Season 3 and 18-episode Seasons 4-6. (USA also recently gave a 26-episode two-season order to veteran Royal Pains after several supersized seasons). The renewal will allow Burn Notice to hit the 100-episode mark next year and become only the third series in USA’s history to do so. “Burn Notice is like a fine wine that gets better with age,” said USA Network co-presidents Chris McCumber and Jeff Wachtel. “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.”
