    Love this show! Please renew it USA is a great network and I’m sue they’ll make
    the right choice; I think everyone in the show is awesome and do a great job in it.

  2. james ulland says

    Great acting in Covert Affairs and the dramatic tension is higher in Season 3. Also the story arc is increasingly compelling. Besides it has the second highest total audience rating on Tuesday night. Looks like the show has earned its Season 4.

  3. Barb says

    This season has been great because Simon had been added him and Annie have such great chemistry together. The network/writers need to figure something out and bring Simon back he brought so much to the show. I will not continue to watch if Simon does not come back. Annie and Auggie just do not have the chemistry to carry this show.

  4. medicinewoman says

    Absolutely RENEW please. Just when Auggie and Annie are starting “something” USA just has to renew. PLEASE USA RENEW COVERT AFFAIRS.

  5. applecora52 says

    This is my favorite show. The current season has upped the ante with each episode more exciting than the last. Wish it went on all year rather than taking a Nov. to July hiatus! Renew, renew, renew!

  6. Jen Martin says

    If USA doesn’t renew this great show, which gets better and better with every showing, then I don’t know anymore. That would be incredibly stupid. But we have seen those strange decisions before, e.g. FOX, NBC, etc. Hopefully the show gets renewed!

  7. Rise Webber says

    Liked the sister in the series. Kept some normalcy to Annie’s life. Don’t like the direction the sho has taken lately. Still will watch if renewed.
