USA Gives 'Burn Notice' Two More Years

Before the 4th season has begun, USA renews 'Burn Notice' for two more years
Over the last few weeks I've been talking about USA network and how its shows have the perfect mix of characterization and scripting that make them some of the most popular programs on television today. One of these shows, which has been given numerous mention, is 'Burn Notice.' Now, before its fourth season begins on June 3rd, news comes in about the show's future.

USA has order two more seasons of the series, which follows former spy Michael Westen and his friends as they try to help the wronged of Miami. This is good news all around. For USA, they establish a potential anchor show that can be used to launch other new shows on Thursday night; if they continue to keep the show at the same time slot. For Miami, it means more free publicity for future visitors who fall in love with the show's tropical settings.

A bit of trivia: if 'Burn Notice' completes its sixth season in Miami it will supplant 'Miami Vice', with five seasons under its belt, as the longest-produced television show in the city.

No matter how hard I try I can't find a place that lists JUST the USA TV schedule. I can find it for TNT. Where is it for USA????

The headdline reads "two more YEARS". Burn Notice run in Jan for several weeks and then again in July for several weeks. So by "years" does it mean there will be four runs, Jan and Jul of 2011 and then Jan and Jul of 2012?

If memory serves, multi-season renewals like this are usually done to insure that the show reaches the number of episodes required for syndication so those rights can be pre-sold.

It means they are set for two more seasons. If everyone still cares it might get renewed then. If no one cares by then. it gets canned.

There was no where in the article that stated season six was the last. It all depends on audience and what the writers can do by that time.

Does this mean that there are two more seasons and then it's over? or are they just showing their commitment by ordering 2 seasons worth of episodes now?
