Michael Westen will continue to give handy spy lessons for USA.
“Burn Notice” has been renewed for a fifth and sixth season at the NBC Universal network, reports Variety. The two seasons ordered is a big vote of confidence, especially considering the fourth season still won’t air until a couple more months.
The series centers on agent Michael Westen (Jeffrey Donovan), who got deemed persona non grata by the government he was serving. Effectively stripped of his money and identity, he uses his spy know-how to pick up jobs by those needing his expertise.
“Once ‘Saturday Night Live’ makes fun of you, how can you not commit to extra seasons?” Jeff Wachtel, USA’s president of original programming.

And speaking of game shows, Discovery Channel has renewed “Cash Cab” for a sixth season, says The Hollywood Reporter.
