'Burn Notice' scoop: Look who's returning! -- EXCLUSIVE

Burn Notice is bringing back a familiar face in its final season.

EW has learned exclusively that Garret Dillahunt will reprise his role as Simon Escher, the psychotic rogue operative who was responsible for committing the crimes Michael was burned for, on the USA drama in an episode set to air this summer.

Dillahunt, who currently plays Burt Chance on Fox’s Raising Hope, was last seen in season 4’s “Hard Time.” In his upcoming appearance, the audience will find the unpredictable Simon NOT inside the maximum security prison where he has spent the past years. The big question: Who let him out?

Burn Notice aired its 100 episode yesterday after premiering its seventh and final season last week.

Before Burn Notice‘s hundredth episode tonight, check out our exclusive video from USA with a behind-the-scenes look at the episode, which was directed by star Jeffrey Donovan. You’ll learn how Donovan (Michael), Gabrielle Anwar (Fiona), and the show’s creator, Matt Nix, decided what to include in the flashbacks of when Michael and Fiona first met (hint: explosions and some butt-kicking). As Sharon Gless points out, when the show first started it had been ten years since Fiona had seen Michael and now it’s been almost a year.

There’s also a tease for one of the episode’s most emotional and dramatic scenes: the reunion of Michael and his mother (who, you know, is partially responsible for him being in trouble in the first place).

Check out interviews with the cast, a look at what went into the Irish pub flashbacks, and a pretty sweet 100th episode cake in the video below:


'Burn Notice': Jeffrey Donovan teases season 7 premiere -- EXCLUSIVE PROMO

When season 7 of Burn Notice picks up nine months after last season’s finale, Michael Westen (Jeffrey Donovan) is deep undercover and far away from his friends back in Miami. When we chatted with Donovan about the premiere, we asked him if this was the darkest we’ve seen his character.

“Absolutely,” he responded. “One of the show’s conceit[s] was Michael had to compartmentalize his feelings to protect himself and survive, not only as a spy but as a child. The first time we’re seeing him this year we’re gonna pull that layer away and expose how he feels.”

Speaking of how he feels, last season’s dramatic final scene between Fiona and Michael left many fans worried. They’re not together when the show picks up, but Donovan teases that the season “pulls them together” over the next 13 episodes. However, he didn’t reveal if that meant as a couple or as friends.

Given that this is the show’s final season, we had to ask Donovan where he hoped Michael would end up. “That’s a difficult question to answer, because I think that Michael truly wants what’s best for the people he cares about not for himself. But I think that if Michael left this family of Sam, Mom, and Fi they would be unhappy. So he wants to be in their lives but he knows that him being in their lives tortures them. So it’s a difficult conflict.”

Burn Notice’s final season premieres tonight at 9 p.m. ET. Next week will be the show’s 100th episode which is also directed by Donovan. Watch a special promo for the season below:


'Burn Notice' season 7 will be its last

Burn Notice‘s upcoming 13-episode seventh season will be the show’s last, the USA Network said today in a release.

Burn Notice has had an incredible run over the last six years, and we could not be more proud of the extraordinary talent both in front of and behind the cameras who have collectively made this show into one of the most popular and lauded shows on TV today,” USA Network co-president Chris McCumber said. “From day one, Burn Notice‘s characters, storylines and mythology have consistently captivated a massive audience, and this final season will raise the stakes even higher, leading up to a spectacular series finale,” added fellow co-pres Jeff Wachtel.

Burn Notice‘s new season premieres June 6.

'Burn Notice' season finale: Gang fights to save Sam -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

Michael and Co. seem to have run into yet another major snag while trying to escape from Panama in tonight’s season finale of Burn Notice – and the price of this mistake might be Sam’s life!

In the exclusive clip below, we see Sam (Bruce Campbell) severely injured after a run-in with Riley. But as worried about Sam as you will be after watching the clip, we should probably be equally worried about Jesse (Coby Bell), who we learn has been taken captive.

Check out the moment below and catch the season finale tonight on USA to find out how it all plays out!


'Burn Notice' renewed for shorter seventh season

Burn Notice is coming back to USA. Just not all the way back.

The network picked up 13 episodes for the show’s seventh season, which will bring the veteran spy drama to 100 episodes. “Burn Notice is like a fine wine that gets better with age,” said USA Network co-presidents Chris McCumber and Jeff Wachtel. “Delivering high-octane action, gripping drama and nearly 7 million viewers for the mid-season finale, this veteran series is a proven staple of our portfolio.”

And like a fine wine, Burn Notice has gotten more expensive as it ages, too — like all TV shows. So it’s not surprising USA is reducing its order a bit, despite the drama’s earthy vintage bouquet. Burn Notice has enjoyed 18-episode seasons in recent years, which is very rare for a cable drama and an indication of its success. A 13-hour order is more the norm.

Still, this made us wonder if this could be Burn Notice‘s final season. A USA spokesperson says there’s “no expectation” this will be the last round. The second half of the series sixth season returns on Thursday.

True story: I’m so excited for fall TV that I’ve been having dreams about watching season premieres. Seriously. My entire dream is me sitting on the couch, watching TV. Part of me thinks that maybe I’m clairvoyant and all the secrets of the fall season are playing out on Dream Sandra’s TV. The more likely possibility is that I need a real life. (My birthday was last week, and I’m now starting to think I wasted that wish. Damn.)

Regardless, as TV continues to invade my dreams, I encourage you to engage with it in reality by sending me your questions! Email or ask via Twitter @EWSandraG. Belated birthday wishes also accepted. (Just don’t ask for age specifics. I’ll never tell.)


'Burn Notice': Michael falls apart during reunion with Fiona -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

Get ready for a tearjerker, Burn Notice fans.

Michael Westen (Jeffrey Donovan) hasn’t been taking his girlfriend’s incarceration very well, and in Thursday’s episode, it shows more than ever when he goes to visit Fiona (Gabrielle Anwar) in prison for the first time.

While we expected their reunion to be emotional, we never expected full-on waterworks from both parties. Frankly, for a series known for its big explosions, fast-paced action, and general badassery, the scene’s super-sad music and hopelessly romantic feel (they’re recounting how they met?! D’aww!) caught us off guard.

Watch it below and tell us if you agree — and if you got a little teary, too.

I’m baaaaaack!

Yes, my two-week vacation to the motherland (Texas) was just the refresher I was hoping for before getting into the thick of all the exciting things happening here at EW this summer — like set visits, Comic-Con, general tomfoolery. My highlights? Reigning supreme in my very first Penny Can tournament, cuddling puppies, and getting my mother addicted to The Vampire Diaries. (“Awww! He met her first!” — mom, re: the finale). But now it’s back to work! So enjoy the return of Spoiler Room.
