Ahh yes…summer is just around the corner. Sun, sand and scripted dramas courtesy of the USA Network are all on tap!

If you are like me, you have been chomping at the bit for shows such as Burn Notice and Suits to make their triumphant and long-awaited returns to your weekly lineup. With that said, here are the dates to set your DVR for!

 

 

Wednesday, June 6th –  Season 4 of Royal Pains and Season 2 of Necessary Roughness. I don't watch either one of these, but some of you might.

 

 

 

 

 

Thursday, June 14th – Burn Notice starts my long-awaited Season 6 and Suits is back for Season 2. If you did not give Suits a try last season, I HIGHLY recommend it. Great show all around.

 

 

 

Burn Notice Scoop: Lauren Stamile will be reprising her role as the CIA handler Agent Pearce for at least four episodes this season.

 

 Tuesday, July 10th – White Collar is back for Season 4 followed by Season 3 of Covert Affairs.

 

White Collar Scoop: Mia Maestro, (Alias) will be playing the role of local cafe owner Maya, who will be striking up a romance with on-the-run Neal. Also guesting will be Mekhi Phifer, playing one of the FBI's best tracker of fugitives. Also on tap for an episode is Smallville's Laura Vandervoort.

 

 

Covert Affairs Scoop: One Tree Hill alumna Daniella Alonso has a  recurring role this season, playing a therapist for the CIA making her rounds at the DPD. Word on the street is Auggie will be needing some mental relief…
