From the fictional town of Dillon, Texas, to a whole new fictional country—that seems to be the latest trajectory for Zach Gilford, who’s joined the cast of USA’s upcoming original drama pilot Stanistan.
Jennifer Carpenter may soon be returning to cable TV. The Dexter alum has been tapped to star in USA’s pilot Stanistan, EW has learned.
On the April 3 episode of Suits, Harvey Specter (Gabriel Macht) may have more to deal with than Mike (Patrick J. Adams) deciding whether or not to leave the firm for a new job that doesn’t involve pretending to be a lawyer. Former name partner Charles Van Dyke (Homeland‘s Jamey Sheridan) returns with an axe to grind with Jessica (Gina Torres). Watch a sneak peek below. READ FULL STORY
USA Network has said yes to more Matt Bomer. (And who wouldn’t?)
The network announced today that it has renewed White Collar for a six-episode sixth season. The studio declined to say whether the season would be the series’s last.
Meanwhile, USA has also picked up Rush, a drama written and produced by Warm Bodies director Jonathan Levine, and Complications, a drama from Burn Notice creator Matt Nix. Both shows are slated for 10-episode runs.
Rush stars Tom Ellis as a party-loving doctor named William Rush who is a master of discretion and the go-to for hush-hush medical needs. Meanwhile, Complications is a medical drama/action series starring Jason O’Mara as a doctar whose outlook on medicine is transformed after a drive-by shooting incident requires him to make a rash decision.
Matt Bomer may not be playing Christian Grey, but he’ll be back on your television soon.
The actor’s show, White Collar, will return Thursday, Jan. 9 at 9 p.m. ET, the network announced today. USA also announced return dates for several of its other popular shows.
Psych will return for its eighth season Wednesday, Jan 8. at 9:00 p.m. ET. This season will feature guest stars Mira Sorvino, Phylicia Rashad, Kristy Swanson, Anthony Michael Hall, Tom Arnold, Billy Zane, Loretta Devine, Bruce Campbell, and Cary Elwes.

He had two personalities on his short-lived NBC drama Do No Harm, but we presume Steven Pasquale (Rescue Me) will be playing just one role when he pop us on White Collar this season. He’s set to appear in one of season 5’s final five episodes as Conrad Worth, a rogue stock broker who sees an opportunity to exploit the world of high-frequency trading on Wall Street, EW has learned. Most recently, Pasquale starred in a limited-run Off Broadway musical adaptation of Todd Haynes’ 2002 film Far From Heaven.
Season 5 of White Collar premieres Thursday, Oct. 17 at 9 p.m. ET on USA.
While fans await the courtroom fireworks on tonight’s episode of Suits (USA, 10 p.m. ET), now that Harvey (Gabriel Macht) knows Stephen (Max Beesley) orchestrated the murders that oil tycoon Ava (Michelle Fairley) stands accused of ordering, we’re still obsessed with last week’s bathroom brawl between Harvey and Stephen.
“Stephen’s referenced quite a few times as being a rugby player and someone who could be dangerous, so obviously he couldn’t be a complete walkover. However, Harvey is Harvey. There can only be one winner physically,” Beesley says, chuckling. “So the old ego had to take a backseat there.”
While they filmed Stephen throwing a few more punches than he ended up landing in the final cut, Huntley was happy with the way the scene turned out: “The audience has always got Harvey’s back. It made sense story-wise for him to come out on top. And it was really good to do something [physical] like that, because I don’t think the show shows a lot of that. It ups all the tension between Harvey and Stephen for the next episode.”
Unlike most of his previous roles, Beesley didn’t know “fixer” Stephen’s full arc when he signed on to Suits.

'Burn Notice: Behind the Burn': 'This is how I find out that my best friend is still alive?' -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO
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:
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:
Great Scott! Psych has reached episode number 100!
And how better to celebrate the milestone for the oft-’80s-referencing, wacky USA Network show than to salute a wacky ’80s movie? Psych’s 100th episode, which airs tonight, fully embraces its Clue theme, complete with guest stars plucked right from the 1985 film: Lesley Ann Warren (Clue’s Miss Scarlet), Martin Mull (Colonel Mustard), and Christopher Lloyd (Professor Plum).
In Psych’s nod to the cult classic, Shawn and Gus are invited to a mysterious party at a historic Santa Barbara mansion. Not long after they arrive and meet their fellow guests, there’s a deadly crime to solve, and five suspects emerge: the Butler, the Groupie, the Manager, the Author, and the Host.
The Clue theme is a good fit for Psych, not just because the show has mystery-solving and crime-fighting at its core, but because the comedy of each is very similar: farcical, frenetic, somehow pulling off a combo of being both delightfully over-the-top and packed with some solid deadpanning.
