Burn Notice Renewed for 13-Episode Season 7

Get More: News, Renewals

Barely 24 hours after Jeffrey Donovan teased the dickens out of the twists on tap for any possible seventh season of Burn Notice, USA Network went ahead and officially renewed the series.

Season 7 of the spy drama will be comprised of just 13 episodes (versus the 18-episode runs for Seasons 4 through 6), yet allow the series to hit the 100-episode mark — making it only the third USA series to do so.

    • I believe this counts Psych since it will hit the 100 mark before Burn Notice with its Clue episode.

    • The first USA show I remember for this was Dead Zone starring Anthony Michael Hall. I believe it was on for seven seasons.

  • Does Silk Stalkings count? That show went on for 7 seasons, I believe.

    • USA Network aired exclusively seasons 3-8 @22 episodes each after CBS stopped joint broadcasting it with them.

      • I’m assuming they mean exclusively USA-created series…otherwise you could add a couple of other shows as well..

  • If it is indeed the last season, then I can’t wait to see how it all ends. What a great show.

  • White Collar will make 100.

    • I definitely hope so!

  • Probably Psych as it will reach 100 before BN season 7.

    Although. I think Silk Stalkings deserves honourable mention.

  • My USA shows are Burn Notice and Psych. Thats it. They took the procedural thing and ran with it way too far. Psych is just too funny and Burn Notice is my hometown. Think FX USA.

  • Hmmm, cutting down the order makes it seem like they’re getting ready to cut it off. Is there anything in the works at USA? They seem to be canceling a lot of shows.

    Comment by Rachel – November 7, 2012 05:46 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • It is widely accepted that this 13 ep order will be the swansong for BN. Most of their recent cancellations have been because the show underperformed. The team that developed their hits is gone, and the well appears to be dry. WC is great, and Covert Affairs is solid. After that?

      As these shows age, they get much more expensive. They just get too costly. The entire core cast has too many other options. Keeping them is too expensive.

      • Widely accepted by who? Armchair speculators? It might be but until they say so you do’t know anything more than anyone else lol.

        “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.”

        Sounds far from “widely accepted”

    • They are having issues with filming in Miami that may have something to do with the uncertainty.

      • Please read the Jeffrey Donovan interview posted today; he says everything is in fact honky dory with the city of Miami, that people are operating off old information.

        Comment by Matt Webb Mitovich – November 7, 2012 08:07 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
        • Glad they got it worked out, but I live in Miami so I know the city has been difficult with BN and some of the other shows in production down here. It has been a big source of contention since these shows bring a lot of revenue to the area.

  • why do shows try and reach this magical 100 episode count? fringe is doing it too. it is just to be cool, or do the actors get paid more or something?

    • 100 episodes is a general benchmark for a show’s eligibility for syndication

  • Great news!!! To me, this is one of the best shows on television.

  • I think they should go longer than 7 seasons but since they are shortening next one, its pretty certain that the show will end. So sad and sucky. They should just stop filming in Miami and move to another location if it will keep the show running longer.

  • Most shows film in Canada cuz I’m sure it’s cheaper to film there or maybe they could film in some other part of FL for the beaches.

  • It makes me sad that shows of this super excellent quality only get seven seasons and a movie AND a series of super excellent tie-in novels.

    • NCIS is on season 10. Law and Order on… 13 isn’t it? and their casts make a good paycheck. Shows that stay good creative and marketable stay on the air because executives don’t kill what makes money. If a show ends its because the cost to income ratio makes it Unfeasible or the writers don’t plan well and paint it into a corner or just run out of ideas. Nothing magical just common sense.

  • Yes!!!!!!!!!! this is one of the best series ever! A modern day MacGuyver. I like this show a lot!!

  • I would wager that White Collar will be the 4th show to reach 100 episodes. I’ll stay with Burn Notice, which I still love, until its end, and I’ll probably wind up buying the dvd set.

    • Did I just hear someone say American TV is funnier than British TV?
      Are you having a laugh?
