Burn Notice Season 7 Renewal Jeffrey Donovan ‘Burn Notice Renewed for Season 7 in 2013

USA Network has carved out something of a niche with a number of light, crowd-pleasing television series that end up gaining more-than-decent viewership and lengthy runs. Many are quirky hybrids – especially character-driven comedy/crime procedurals such as Psych and Monk. The formula doesn’t always work (one need only look over the announcements of USA’s upcoming cancellations for verification), but these strange televised animals can inspire great audience loyalty.

One of the more successful recent examples of USA’s hybrid phenomenon is the dramedy/spy thriller Burn Notice. The show’s solid fanbase should be pleased by the recent news that Michael Westen and his gun-toting pals will return for season 7 next year.

Yesterday, the USA Network announced that it has ordered 13 new episodes of Burn Notice for 2013. This is a particular win for the show, as its sixth season has yet to wrap up. Burn Notice will air its two-hour mid-season premiere tonight.

Burn Notice stars Jeffrey Donovan (J. Edgar) as Michael Westen, an elite CIA agent suddenly disavowed by the Company and left for dead in Miami. Over the course of the last six seasons, Westen has helped out the helpless with his very specific skill-set, hung out with this his aging mother (Sharon Gless of Nip/Tuck), and tried to unravel the reasons why he was so suddenly “burned” by his former superiors. The show also stars the inimitable Bruce Campbell (Evil Dead, Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs) as a bumbling-but-resourceful FBI fink and Gabrielle Anwar (The Tudors) as Michael’s trigger-happy ex-girlfriend.

These new installments of Burn Notice will take the show well past its hundredth episode. This makes Burn Notice only the third television series on USA to surpass 100 episodes. While there is no word as to whether the show itself will mark the occasion, one has to wonder whether the series’ occasional bursts of wacky bombast will manifest in a full-on anniversary episode.

Here’s to hoping for some more variations on explosives made from household items.

Burn Notice returns for more of season 6 tonight; season 7 will slink back onto television in 2013.

  1. My husband and I love Burn Notice. Can’t wait for the new season. I hope they have many more seasons. Was very disapointed when Monk ended.

  2. I love this show!! Its different. Hiliarious ! Alot of action!

  3. Last season of Burn notice! I hope it end with Fiona and Michael blowing up in an explosion of Fiona’s making.

  4. I love Jeffrey Donovan. Great actor. Love the program and all the characters. One of the better attention holding shows on tv. Love, love, love it.

  5. i hope it ends with micheal and fiono getting married

  6. Hope it will continue on after season 7 I really really love this program
    I watched the first 5 seasons on Netflix and am watching the sixth season on the Canadian superchannel. and waiting for the 7th season please keep on making more and more episodes.

  7. I think burn notice could have changed 2 things to be successful (I watch a lot of tv). 1. each episode should have been separate or 2 part episodes. So if you missed an episode or two you didn’t have to figure out how you got there. 2. I felt Fi was the downfall of the show. I quit watching because she was so mean, not feminine or personable. There was nothing likable about her. Everyone else was fun to watch. Take some hints from NCIS especially Ziva David. Anita in Seattle (retired)

    • Fi was one of the best actresses and unfortunately you “watching alot of tv” doesnt mean you umderstand her role in the show….. Without her there is no romance

      Every good show needs romance

      • Our family loves burn notice..and ALL the characters.. fiona is great.. the moms my fav… she plays a good part..hopefully they keep the show running were from washington and everyone we know loves burn notice…

    • fi was very likeable, you should have continued watching and maybe than you would see it differently

  8. My family and I can’t wait to watch this show every year. Wish they would extend it another season….Love ALL the characters. Do not like Psyche, Suits or the rest like them. Burn Notice is unusual, refreshing and out of the box. We just hold our breath waiting to see if the network big wigs will be smart enough to keep this one riding. LONG LIVE THIS SERIES!! IF WE ARE LUCKY!

  9. Love this show. Never want it to end.

    • love,love,love this show. so happy to hear about season 7. just finished season 6 yesterday. Michael looked so sexy odering around those CIA suits in the last seen. love, love, love this show.
