Tonight, “Covert Affairs” concluded season 5 on USA, and it certainly did so with all of the gusto and awesomeness that you could have hoped for it. After all, there are many cliffhangers in between Annie’s personal life, the status of her and a certain business offer, and Auggie’s possible attempt to get away from the CIA.
Before we do anything else, though, we have to wonder the following: Will there even be a “next time” for the show? Unfortunately, the jury is still out. After the episode, executive producer Matt Corman told TVLine that they are still waiting to figure out what happens next:
“To the first [question], we don’t know when we find out. We are excited at the opportunity if it should present itself to do more. But we really don’t know. For us, these characters and the actors we’re working with are so infinitely talented that we think we could keep telling stories forever. Maybe we’re delusional in that sense, but we just love this show so much. We don’t like to think about it in terms of the end.”
Personally, we feel like a renewal will probably get done. USA has a habit now of giving most of their shows, or at least the ones that are longer than three seasons, some sort of closure. They just did this with “White Collar” tonight, and they did it previously with “Burn Notice,” “Monk,” and “Psych.” They recently renewed “Royal Pains,” and it has at least two more years on TV. To see the trend stopped here would be sad.
