A day into the broadcast networks' Premiere Week, the NBCUniversal-owned cable network pulled the trigger on bringing back three staples of its summer lineup.
Royal Pains will return for two additional runs of 13 episodes each, getting a 26-episode order for seasons five and six. The move comes as the cabler is prepping a two-hour Royal Pains TV movie, Off-Season Greetings, revolving around the upcoming nuptials between Evan (Paulo Costanzo) and Paige (Brooke D'Orsay) slated to air Dec. 16.
White Collar and Covert Affairs, meanwhile, will return for their respective fifth and fourth seasons, consisting of 15 episodes each.
