USA’s summer drama series “White Collar,” “Royal Pains” and “Covert Affairs” have been renewed, the cable network announced today.
“Royal Pains” received a two seasons order of 26 episodes. Whereas, “White Collar” and “Covert Affairs” were each picked up of a season of 16 episodes.
“All three of these series have found ways to stay creatively fresh and culturally relevant. The execution in writing, acting and production is among the best on television. In an increasingly competitive landscape, these series got new season pickups the old-fashioned way — they earned it!,” Chris McCumber and Jeff Wachtel, co-presidents of USA Network, said in a statement.
However, freshman series: “Common Law,” “Political Animals, ” and returning series: “Necessary Roughness,” and Fairly Legal” are still on the bubble.
Production for the renewed series will begin in 2013.
