The folks at USA network had a good thing going when they launched ‘Covert Affairs‘ earlier this summer: a great-looking, talented cast, a strong formula, and writing with zing. Yesterday, the network celebrated the show’s success by renewing it for a second season. The spy drama in which Piper Perabo plays newbie CIA agent Annie Walker has scored big ratings since it’s July 13 premiere, including last week’s season high of 5.4 million viewers. E! online reported Perabo injured her knee on the set, but was expected to make a quick and full recovery. If you haven’t discovered ‘Covert Affairs,’ which the NY Times called “fun and clever” and Slate dubbed “a zippy character study,” check it out now on xfinityTV.com and keep up online and On Demand.
