“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,” USA Co-Presidents Chris McCumber and Jeff Wachtel said in a statement. “It’s a rare and wonderful thing to announce the pick-up of our entire summer of programming.”

Covert Affairs will air six new episodes to close out its current season, starting on November 1, while Royal Pains will close out its third season later this winter.
