USA's hit international spy drama series "Covert Affairs" returns with six all-new, action-packed episodes on Thursday, Oct. 17 at 10 p.m. The first half of season four brought in nearly 4 million total viewers P2+ (3.955MM), making "Covert Affairs" one of summer's top 10 cable scripted shows. The season finale is scheduled for Thursday, Nov. 21.
The critically acclaimed spy drama series "Covert Affairs" stars Golden Globe-nominee Piper Perabo ("Coyote Ugly") as Annie Walker, a young CIA operative whose exceptional linguistic skills and killer instinct make her invaluable to the agency. As the fourth season continues, audiences find an emboldened Annie Walker emerging from the life she once knew. Now, she's a spy operating off the grid without ties to her agency or the support of her beloved handler, Auggie (Christopher Gorham). Annie knows that tying Henry Wilcox (guest star Gregory Itzin) to the disastrous attack in Copenhagen is the best way to bring him down, and that's exactly what she aims to do. The series also stars Peter Gallagher, Kari Matchett and Hill Harper.
International shooting locations this season have included Medellín, Rome, Vienna, Copenhagen, Hong Kong, Grand Bahama Island and Geneva. Gorham will direct episode 414.
