‘Royal Pains’ season 6: Mark Feuerstein has no interest in show ending
When “Royal Pains” was renewed for a fifth and sixth season a couple of years ago, we know that there were some people out there shuddering at the thought that this may have been one of those renewals that was really meant to carry through to the end of the series.
Could this summer really be the last time that we take a trip to this show’s version of the Hamptons? We hope not, and it seems that at least one of the show’s cast members feels the same way. Speaking to E! News, Mark Feuerstein made it clear that he has no intention of the show going away anytime soon:
“It’s season six, shows are not necessarily allowed to go beyond season seven or season eight, but I want both of those because I love this show, I love the actors I get to work with. The writing is amazing, but at the very latest by season eight we may have to say goodbye to Dr. Hank Lawson … I’m thrilled to be that show and I hope they never get rid of us.”
Note that Mark is saying season 8 not so much because of his own desire to end the show then, but rather due to the history of USA over the years. Both “Monk” and “Psych” ended at that point. If “Royal Pains” does go on, ut will help to represent a very specific era of USA shows for a while longer. If you look at most other programs from its generation, most of them are gone or ending now with the exception of maybe “Covert Affairs.” (“White Collar” is ending later this season.)
How long do you want to see “Royal Pains” around for? Let us know below.

USA should keep producing the show until season 8. I love the acting and storyline!

I like Royal Pains. Therefore, I think that 8 seasons would be good.

I think it is sad that White Collar got the shaft. Undoubtedly Royal Pains will get their full seasons and have a fond farewell when the time comes. White Collar on the other hand, a show which is still good in the ratings, and has a worldwide following only gets a 6 episode final season, (which almost didn’t happen)..It is a slap in the face to White Collar Cast, Crew and Fans from the USA Network. No other show has been treated like this. This was USA network’s signature series, and apparently White Collar Characters are NO LONGER WELCOME on this network. Such a shame. I know shows end but this one, deserved much better, at least a full season.

Hate to burst your bubble, but White Collar was pulling 0.9 down to 0.6 over the winter last year going up against mainly repeats on the networks and did so in 2013 as well. Royal Pains pulled slightly higher during the summer in the 9PM hour. Not exactly the best time for a show to air during the summer.
And White Collar really did me in with Neal’s father. I don’t know if it bounced back from that and Peter getting arrested, but I gave up on it when those happened. I gave up on Covert Affairs even faster.
