Social Initiatives Give Fans The Opportunity To See Their Farewell Videos On-Air and Receive A Chance To Win BURN NOTICE Prizes, Including Signed Scripts
New York, NY – September 4, 2013 –  On Thursday, September 12 at 9 p.m./8c, after seven unforgettable seasons, the Emmy®-nominated original drama BURN NOTICE comes to an end that fans won’t want to miss.  As USA Network says goodbye to the series that redefined summer television, questions will be answered and the team will reunite for an explosive conclusion that one beloved character will not survive.
“This final episode is a must-see for anyBURN NOTICE fan-- whether you've been with us since the pilot or just caught the occasional marathon on USA,” said show creator, Matt Nix. “It's bittersweet to bring the series to an end, but I'm really happy to be leaving viewers with a great series finale.  It's satisfying and has some major surprises.”
“When BURN NOTICE began in 2007, it was one of the shows that reinvented summer television and helped create a new television-watching season,” said Chris McCumber and Jeff Wachtel, USA Network co-presidents.  “As the series draws to a close, it leaves behind an unparalleled legacy as one of the most popular and transformational shows on television.”
In the farewell episode, Michael Westen (Jeffrey Donovan) finds himself at the end of the road.  Still at odds with the CIA and unable to forgive himself for betraying his team, he will need to regain the trust of those closest to him to finish what he started.  However, in order to face the last of his demons some sacrifices must be made and lives risked, maybe even his own.
Leading up to the finale event, fans can catch up on the adrenaline-packed series and relive some of their favorite moments through a day-long BURN NOTICE marathon, which begins on Thursday, September 12 at 6 a.m./5c. The marathon will feature three episodes from season six and the complete and final seventh season.

  • Joe Smith

    love this show. i think it could have had another few good seasons.

    but, i’m gonna enjoy what’s left!

  • Mike

    4 million viewers (on average) disagree with you, Walter. If you don’t like the show, then don’t read the article and don’t comment on it. Nobody is forcing you to do so.

  • cypfan

    I for one will miss my Thursday night Burn Notice. Stellar acting, entertaining writing, exciting guest stars and of course the explosions !!

    Overall a very well produced cable show.

    Will most of all miss beautiful Miami setting and the snarky toungue in cheek humor.

  • LovingLostGirl

    First they cancelled In Plain Sight. Then it was Leverage. Now Burn Notice. Next year True Blood. WILL THE MADNESS EVER END. I’m a true fan of good television and it breaks my heart to loose character that I’m so vested in.

  • 728huey


    I’m going to miss Burn Notice myself, but all of the shows you mentioned had decent, lengthy runs, and in the cases of Burn Notice and True Blood, they are ending on their own terms. So don’t be too sad about the end.

  • dji

    USA is very smart they end shows before they get old and stale. i will miss burn notice.

  • Gio vanni Patterson

    I think it’s messed up Fiona dyes

  • Louie V

    It was a very good show, but I kniw it needed to change or have a conclusion. Its time. I would have preferred it to continue with him back as a regular CIA agent, but it’s time, I guess.

    Good series!

  • Neha

  • Ana G. Edwards

    We are going to miss our favorite Thursday night TV pleasure. Burn notice is one of the best shows on T.V.

    You all will be missed.xo

  • Sammy

    I didn’t really start watching this show until they took “24′ away from me. Then I rented every season and played catch-up. I understand why it’s coming to an end, but I will miss this crew or honorable folks. I hope they don’t kill anyone off, as that will leave a door open for a 2 hour, what are they doing now yearly thing. I generally do not get my wish. On the other hand they are re-booting “24”, so my Jack is back. Nice timing!!!

  • flowgirl
