USA cancels 'Covert Affairs' after five seasons

Covert Affairs has been canceled after five seasons, EW has confirmed.

The spy series, starring Piper Perabo, debuted in 2010 to 4.88 million viewers, but struggled in later seasons. The series finale drew just 1.59 million viewers.

It’s bad news for fans since Covert Affairs ended its run with a cliffhanger. Auggie planned to leave the agency, while Annie weighed McQuaid’s marriage proposal.

But the network won’t be short on dramas with Covert’s cancellation. USA has already green lit three series for this year—Dig, Mr. Robot and Complications—with four more pilots in contention—Colony, Queen of the South, Evil Men and Stanistan.
