Two crime dramas have been given the ax today. First up is USA’s spy series Burn Notice, which will begin airing its final season on Thursday, June 6th at 9/8c. Starring Jeffrey Donovan, Gabrielle Anwar and Bruce Campbell, Burn Notice will bring the exploits of the disavowed spy Michael Westen (Donovan) to an end with its seventh season.
Meanwhile, TNT’s cop drama Southland has been cancelled, meaning that the show’s fifth season finale (which aired on April 17th) will serve as the series finale as well. Southland’s leads, Ben McKenzie, Regina King and Shawn Hatosy, have all booked pilots so you may see them again soon. Hit the jump to watch the season seven premiere teaser for Burn Notice.
