Last night, the Emmy®-nominated original drama Burn Notice came to an end after seven unforgettable seasons. With its conclusion, USA Network says goodbye to a series that redefined summer television.
"When Burn Notice began in 2007, it was one of the shows that reinvented summer television and helped create a new television-watching season," said Chris McCumber, President, USA Network. "As the series draws to a close, it leaves behind an unparalleled legacy as one of the most popular and transformational shows on television."
A breakout hit, Burn Notice first aired in 2007 and quickly changed the summer television landscape by bringing viewers back to their sets during what was a traditionally slow season. Burn Notice broke new ground by showing that audiences had an appetite for serious drama year-round.
Over the years, the series has been honored with numerous industry accolades, including Emmy® and WGA nominations and a Gracie Award for supporting actress Sharon Gless, as well as an Edgar Allan Poe Award for showrunner Nix. The series has also been praised for its impeccable stunt work garnering multiple Emmy® and Screen Actors Guild nominations. Beloved by fans, Burn Notice was nominated for Favorite TV Obsession in 2011 and Favorite Cable TV Drama in 2013 at the People’s Choice Awards. The fan favorite graphic novel Burn Notice: A New Day received the AdAge Media Vanguard Award for Most Innovative Broadcast Brand Extension in 2011.
