THE NEWS BUNDLE: USA Network Announces Premiere Dates for 'White Collar', 'Suits', 'Covert Affairs', and More


With series wrapping up, and the weather getting hot, it's almost time for summer! While some networks have announced their summer premieres already, perhaps the one network with the most series on during the summer has not. We're talking, of course, about USA Network. With many successes in its arsenal, some of the network's most anticipated series are kicking off the summer, and today, USA revealed just when we'll be seeing our favorite characters on the screen once more.

Kicking off everything, Wednesdays will start with new seasons of Royal Pains at 9PM, followed by Necessary Roughness 10PM, on June 6th. The series will start off their fourth and second seasons, respectively. Joining them more than a week later on June 14th, the spy hit that is arguably the biggest series over at USA Burn Notice will heat up Thursday nights, followed by the sophomore season from one of last summer's biggest hits Suits.

USA will hold off on premieres after that until Tuesdays come into effect on July 10th, where the fourth season of White Collar will debut, leading into the network's other spy series Covert Affairs. This past weekend, Smallville actress Laura Vandervoort was shown smooching it up with lead actor Matt Bomer on-camera as they shot her upcoming guest stint. Could she be a new recurring love interest?

However, the network did not announce a premiere date for Political Animals, a mini-series set in Washington D.C., starring Sigourney Weaver, Carla Gugino, Sebastian Stan, and more. The show is really seen as important for Once Upon a Time fans, as if the show is not initially expanded beyond its mini-series status, it could mean that Stan will join the fairy tale drama as a possible series regular in its second season, as the creators have slightly hinted recently.
