USA Network has picked up a trio of summer favorites, announcing yesterday that Covert Affairs, Royal Pains and Necessary Roughness will all return with 16 episodes in 2012.
“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.
