USA Network has given the green signal for another 16-episode season of the spy drama series, Covert Affairs. The President of USA Network, Chris McCumber said that this one-of-a-kind series is one of the most popular stories, with a global audience and the channel is happy for its renewal. According to Chris, the storyline of the series is extraordinary, which has such an assortment of characters and what gives it the edge is the amazing locations. He also said that Covert Affairs is one of the keystones of America’s authentic signature dramas.
Covert Affairs season 4 just finished its first half in mid-September and was rated among this summer’s top 10 cable shows, with a viewership of almost 4 million. The best part about this news is that the next season gets renewed only weeks before the return of the second-half of the 4th season. The last six episodes of this season have been assured by the co-creators Chris Ord and Matt Corman, as the most unexpected where Annie Walker, the CIA agent played by Piper Perabo decides to portray her fake death and goes deep undercover in order to complete her mission of destroying Henry Wilcox (played by Gregory Itzin). According to Corman, the viewers will see a phenomenal change in the character of Annie but the end of the season, which totally transforms her as well as the show.
Ord says that this entirely new Annie will take Covert Affairs to another level. This time she has no help and has to cope up with the challenges all alone, it will be exciting to watch her deal with them and move on. Kari Matchett, Christopher Gorham, Hill Harper and Peter Gallagher star in the spy drama, under the Universal Cable Productions with Corman and Ord as co-creators as well as executive producers alongside, Stephen Kay, David Bartis, Doug Liman and Gene Klein. As a matter of fact, Gorham will be directing the fourth episode of the season’s second-half. The featured global locations this season are Copenhagen, Rome, Grand Bahama Island, Vienna, Medellín and Geneva.
