Shooter Premiere Date

USA's Shooter Gets November Premiere Date, Following Two Delays

USA Network’s sniper drama Shooter has a new premiere date — Tuesday, Nov. 15 — in its sights, the network announced late Monday via Twitter.

Based on a Stephen Hunter novel (Point of Impact) and the 2007 Mark Wahlberg film, Shooter stars Ryan Phillippe as Bob Lee Swagger, a highly decorated ex-Marine sniper who is coaxed back into action after he learns about a plot to kill the president. The cast also includes Omar Epps (House), Shantel Vansanten (The Flash), Eddie McClintock (Warehouse 13) and Cynthia Addai-Robinson (Arrow).

The thriller series was twice delayed from its original July 19 premiere date — first, in the wake of the July 7 ambush of Dallas police officers that left five dead and several others wounded, and then by the July 17 ambush-style attack in Baton Rouge, La., that claimed the lives of three law enforcement officers.

    Like the book, never saw the film.

    Have this tagged for my DVR.

  2. Aubrey says:

    About time! Hope the various delays doesn’t hurt it’s potential views that it wouldn’t gotten before.

  3. ToyCannon says:

    Why didn’t they just move the premiere to November 22?

  4. Mr. Smith says:

    Unless this show is a piece of “Bob” crap, air it. The book and the original film were great. Disappointing that they waited until almost Thanksgiving…

  5. Kim says:

    Finally! Can’t wait to watch this show.

  6. MiaB says:

    This is America. If you try and wait until there’s a week that doesn’t have a mass shooting, you’ll never air it.

  7. How long do they have to wait after a shooting? It may never get aired.

  8. Kevin In CT says:

    The book and movie were very good. It’s probably not in fashion these days but the ballistics info contained in the book and movie is pretty accurate.

  9. Dawn says:

    Why are they making a show? Wasn’t the movie enough? (Loved the movie BTW)

    Love Cynthia when she was on Spartacus, I miss that show. Looking forward to seeing her on this show.

    Going to check this out for Cynthia Addai Robinson. Loved her in Spartacus and Arrow. I hope the delay doesn’t hurt this show, fall television is much more competitive than summer.
