“Covert Affairs” has been canceled.
USA Network pulled the plug on Piper Perabo and Christopher Gorham’s CIA drama after five seasons, a network representative told TheWrap.
The NBCUniversal-owned network is discontinuing the show because of its low number of live viewers, despite the fact “Covert Affairs” did perform well in live +3 and live +7 ratings. An individual with knowledge said USA will now be focusing on its other dramas, including “Suits,” “Royal Pains,” and “Graceland.”
The Season 5 finale for “Covert Affairs” ended with several cliffhangers: Annie (Perabo) was trying to decide whether to take a new assignment with the CIA and whether or not to say yes to a marriage proposal. Auggie (Gorham), meanwhile, was considering moving away from covert operations all together.
Barring a Christmas special, the world may never know what the characters decided.
Matt Corman and Chris Ord created “Covert Affairs,” which co-starred Kari Matchett, Peter Gallagher Hill Harper. Universal Cable Productions produced.
