USA has announced renewals for three of the shows that helped keep it the No. 1 cable network across key demos for a seventh consecutive summer. The network has ordered a 16-episode fourth season of Covert Affairs, a 16-episode fifth season of White Collar, and 26 additional episodes of Royal Pains to be spread across seasons 5 and 6.

Covert Affairs resumes its current season on Oct. 16, while White Collar returns with new episodes in January. A two-hour Royal Pains movie, Off-Season Greetings, will premiere Dec. 16 on USA.

A note for Suits fans, we wouldn’t worry. Talking to EW before the summer finale in August, creator Aaron Korsh was confident the show would get renewed – eventually. “USA is obviously tremendously supportive of all of their shows. It’s not been a worry or concern of mine that we will get a season 3 pick up,” he said. “They have to go through their process, and I’m sure they will. I’m sure we’ll get a pick up.” Suits returns in January.
