On top of last week’s confirmed “True Blood” renewal and the just announced “Breaking Bad” renewal, a lot of other Summer cable series have scored full season renewals in the past few days with all of them now guaranteed to be returning next year.
While they may have given “Eureka” the boot, Syfy is sticking with “Warehouse 13” and given the show a full fourth season. The series has become the flagship scripted series for the network and most recently drew in 2 million viewers in Live+Same Day ratings.
TNT has renewed “Leverage” for a fifth season with 15 more episodes of the drama, starring Timothy Hutton as an insurance investigator-turned-thief. The current fourth season’s audience is up 10% on the third season.
USA Network has renewed new legal drama “Suits” for second season and increased the episode order to sixteen, up from twelve for the first season. The most recent episode drew 4 million viewers even against the season premiere of ratings juggernaut “Jersey Shore”.
USA has also renewed “In Plain Sight” for a fifth season, but they’ve now confirmed it will be the show’s final and will be only eight episodes long as compared with the usual 12-15 episodes.
