[via press release from USA]


Hit Original Drama Series Returns Thursday, June 6 at 9/8c With 13 New Episodes

New York, NY - May 10, 2013 - USA announced today that its Emmy(R)-nominated original drama series and ratings juggernaut BURN NOTICE will air its seventh and final season beginning Thursday, June 6 at 9/8c. The hit series, from Fox Television Studios and creator Matt Nix, stars Jeffrey Donovan, Gabrielle Anwar, Bruce Campbell, Sharon Gless and Coby Bell, and will join an elite group this season as the network's third series to cross the 100 episode milestone.

"BURN NOTICE has had an incredible run over the last six years, and we could not be more proud of the extraordinary talent both in front of and behind the cameras who have collectively made this show into one of the most popular and lauded shows on TV today," said Chris McCumber, USA Network co-president. "From day one, BURN NOTICE's characters, storylines and mythology have consistently captivated a massive audience, and this final season will raise the stakes even higher, leading up to a spectacular series finale," said Jeff Wachtel, co-president of USA Network.

The adrenaline-charged seventh season of BURN NOTICE will keep hearts racing as viewers uncover the details of the mysterious deal that fans' favorite renegade spy, Michael Westen (Donovan) struck in the season six finale. Michael's past and present collide as he tries to rebuild relationships with his family and friends while pursuing a dangerous mission involving the CIA and a lethal network of operatives. Recurring guest stars this season include Jack Coleman ("Heroes"), Adrian Pasdar (POLITICAL ANIMALS) and Stephen Martines ("The Closer").

Over the years, BURN NOTICE has been honored with numerous industry accolades, including an Emmy(R) nomination and Gracie Award for supporting actress Sharon Gless, as well as an Edgar Allan Poe Award for showrunner Matt Nix. The BURN NOTICE: A New Day digital graphic novel won the AdAge Vanguard Award for the Most Innovative Broadcast Brand Extension in 2011. The series has also been praised for its impeccable stunt work and has garnered multiple Emmy(R) and Screen Actors Guild nominations. Greatly beloved by fans, BURN NOTICE was nominated for Favorite TV Obsession in 2011 and Favorite Cable TV Drama in 2013 at the People's Choice Awards.

A critical hit since its inception, the Los Angeles Times praised the series, saying it had "a smart, savvy edge that seems fresh" and the Chicago Tribune called it an "espionage gem" and pointed out "The characters always come first, and they are all very well realized." USA Today noted it "mixes drama with humor, often through dry narrative asides," and Entertainment Weekly called it a "can't-miss."

A breakout hit, BURN NOTICE premiered in 2007 as the #1 new scripted series in P18-49, P25-54, and total viewers P2+. In 2009, BURN NOTICE became the most watched scripted series ever on basic cable in P18-49, the first-ever series to break 3 million in the demo in a year. BURN NOTICE has been one of the top ten scripted series on cable every year it has been on the air and was a successful lead-in to hit series launches for ROYAL PAINS and SUITS. When BURN NOTICE aired Thursdays at 9pm last summer, it became the top performer in that timeslot on cable, outperforming FOX head-to-head in P25-54, P18-49, P18-34, and total viewers P2+.

Fans can catch up on season six of BURN NOTICE on VOD or via streaming at usanetwork.com starting on May 7. The mobile app Shadow Recruit challenges viewers to get inside Westen's mind, test their spy skills and become his "shadow." Plus, fans can explore the show's mythology through the award-winning graphic novels BURN NOTICE: A New Day and First Contact, which feature the hunt for those responsible for burning Westen.

BURN NOTICE was created, written and executive produced by Nix. Mikkel Bondesen, Alfredo Barrios, Craig O'Neill, Ben Watkins, and Terry Miller serve as executive producers. From Fox Television Studios, Fabrik Entertainment and Flying Glass of Milk Productions, the series films in Miami.
