PLEASE,please don’t cancel Burn Notice.Why would anybody cancel a great show ? If they do cancel than Matt Nix take the show to another channel. I’m sure you would have no problem selling it to another cable channel.If USA is smart they will renew for another 2 seasons.


TheRealAnubis September 21, 2012 at 4:23 pm

Well, in an interview with Bruce on Digital Spy, he says that he thinks 7 seasons would be plenty, and anything past that may get dicey.

Read for yourself…

I vote for at least 10, but hey, if they stop having fun doing it, then it’s time to move on..



Lisa September 19, 2012 at 8:52 pm

Hope Burn Notice is renewed. Great show and keeps getting better and better!


Terri September 12, 2012 at 9:32 am

I will be highly disappointed if Burn Notice is cancelled. This is the best show on air. I usually only watch cable, but if Burn Notice is not renewed I will have problems moving on from USA. They should be able to end the series with a great storyline

Burn Notice is still the best show on TV. I’ve been watching Burn Notice on DVD instead of the shows still airing on Thursday nights. USA should respect the fans of the show and give us at least one more season so the writers can end the show and story line properly. Burn Notice still gets good ratings. What’s up USA?? After 6 years of watching, how long do the fans have to wait to find out if Burn Notice is renewed?? And how can the writers do their job if they don’t know how long they have? Come on USA, we need a Burn Notice season 7!

PLEASE do not let Burn Notice go. From Ireland, It’s been the most inventive and simulative US show for a long while. Please Matt Nix, keep it up and going….


Dorothy September 1, 2012 at 1:49 pm

Please do not cancel this show! I and so many others love it. In these hard times there is very little to be happy about. This show brings happiness to so many. Please consider our feelings and keep it around. Thank you

I absolutely love this show. It is, without hesitation, my favorite television program of all time. I don’t want it to ever be cancelled and I certainly want it to have a seventh season. Jeffrey Donovan is a wonder in every way. Gabrielle Anwar is fabulous. Bruce Campbell is irreplaceable. And Sharon Gless is perfect in her part. The rest of television pales dreadfully in comparison to Burn Notice. Please bring it back and keep it going. It’s a fantastic show.


Kim August 28, 2012 at 5:02 pm

I love this show! I love every episode. I love the charachters. I haven’t been this addicted to a series since Lost.


synnova August 26, 2012 at 5:30 pm

LOVE this show! I hope it continues for a long while. Its the only show I have ever really wanted to see the next one, and really anticipate the season openers


Nate Weston Jr. August 26, 2012 at 3:59 pm

This is one of the best shows on television to cancel it would awful…


Vera Sclafane August 25, 2012 at 2:32 pm

If Burn Notice doesn’t get renewed, it will be the biggest SHOCK WAVE of all time. This show is absolutely great!


Sheila August 25, 2012 at 8:52 am

Still absolutely love Burn Notice and can’t imagine what my TV viewing would be like without it.


Paul August 24, 2012 at 11:31 pm

I am still enjoying this series very much. Keep going!


Essie August 29, 2012 at 3:25 pm

I love this show to take it off would BURN me up!!!!


geri August 24, 2012 at 10:43 pm

I think Burn Notice is a very good show. If it must go, I think they should give it one more full season so that it can go out in style.
