USA’s hit original international spy drama series, “Covert Affairs,” has received a 16-episode fifth season renewal order. The series was one of summer’s top 10 cable scripted shows, with nearly 4 million total viewers.

“No other series on television travels the globe to tell a story like ‘Covert Affairs,’ and we are pleased to bring it back for another season” said Chris McCumber, President of USA Network. “With its intricate storytelling, diverse characters and authentic locations, the series continues to be a cornerstone in our line-up of USA’s original signature dramas.”
