White Collar and Covert Affairs each merited another 16-episode cycle, bringing them to Seasons 5 and 4, respectively. Royal Pains received a regal order indeed: two more seasons – 26 episodes total – of the Hamptons-based medical drama, which will carry it through Season 6.
Meanwhile, several other of the network’s dramas — including Common Law, Necessary Roughness, Political Animals and Fairly Legal — are still on the bubble as they wait to hear whether they’ll shoot another season.
Covert Affairs’ third season continues Tuesday, Oct. 16 at 10/9c and wraps in November. White Collar‘s Season 4 continues in January. Royal Pains’ two-hour winter movie, “Off-Season Greetings,” is scheduled to air Sunday, Dec. 16 at 9/8c.Follow @kimroots
