Annie Walker’s mission is over.
USA Network has cancelled Covert Affairs after five seasons, TVLine has confirmed.
Last month, executive producer Chris Ord told TVLine that he and fellow EP Matt Corman “wouldn’t be happy” if the Season 5 finale — which ended with Annie contemplating a marriage proposal from Ryan and a job offer from Joan — was the series’ last episode.
“We want the show to continue,” he said. “We’re very proud of this finale. So at least we feel if we didn’t come back, we’d be going out on a high note. We don’t really like to think about it in those terms.”
Added Corman: “For us, these characters and the actors we’re working with are so infinitely talented that we think we could keep telling stories forever. Maybe we’re delusional in that sense, but we just love this show so much. We don’t like to think about it in terms of the end.”
The EPs, star Piper Perabo and her castmate Peter Gallagher responded to the cancellation on Twitter:
