USA Network Has Good News/Bad News for 'Burn Notice' EW

USA Network gave good news and bad news to the series "Burn Notice." The good news is that the spy drama was renewed for a seventh season, but the bad news is that the season will be shorter -- just 13 episodes, reports EW.com's Inside TV.

The order will bring the show's episode count to 100, the piece notes.

The show has gotten more expensive, which might explain why USA ordered a shorter season. The program has recently aired 18-episode seasons, which indicates the show's popularity with viewers. A 13-episode order is more typical for cable dramas, the story notes.
