After renewing White Collar, Suits and In Plain Sight, USA Network has now made three more renewals for a handful of their ongoing series. TV Line has word that the cable network has given a third season order to Covert Affairs and a fourth season order to Royal Pains. Meanwhile, the new series Necessary Roughness will get a second season at bat as well. In a bit of standard publicity fluff, USA Co-Presidents Chris McCumber and Jeff Wachtel said:
“USA’s original programming blew through all expectations this summer. We had an unprecedented number of original series on our air — and every single one of them was great.”
As for the conclusion of the current seasons of Covert Affairs and Royal Pains, the former will begin airing the final six episodes of the second season on November 1st at 9/8c while the latter will finish out its season sometime later this winter.
