Covert Affairs is an American activity show TV series recorded in Toronto, Canada, featuring Piper Perabo and Christopher Gorham that debuted on Tuesday, July 13, 2010.

Here are all the details we know about Covert Affairs Season 6 Release Date.
Covert Affairs Season 6 Release Date
If you too are waiting to get some information about the season 6 of Covert Affairs and desperately want to see your favorite characters return to screen keep reading and find out more about the show.
The main reason we are looking forward is that at the end of season 5 we see that Annie has the marriage proposal from Ryan in one hand and on the other hand she has the opportunity given by Joan to join the CIA task force and she has ended the episode by indicating that she has figured it out. But as per the details shared by the producers, they are still hopeful for the show’s return but it is the network that cancelled the show. So, seems like the show shall not be returning for a season six. We are though really hoping for the creators to share Annie’s decision.
As per our understanding, it was the cost of the show’s creation that led to its ultimate cancellation. After the first few seasons the show that was shot only in Tronto, Canada began to film in places all around the world. Also, as the cast gained prominence and more work the cost of their talent had increased as well. Hence maybe it was the finance issue that has prevented the show from return.
Not only this the rating of the show can also be held responsible for the show not returning. The show earlier had a fan following and viewer count about 32% higher than season 5 while the views of season 5 was lower than about 48% from season 4.
Although this move did come as a surprise to a lot of people as the network USA was indicating a significant shift in its shows from half our comedy shows to series filled with drama and thrill much like covert affairs. Hence naturally people were expecting it to renew all its drama series that were on hold which it even did to some extent. Shows like Suits, Royal Pains and Grace land have been picked up but it was only this show which was an old established series that has complete support of its creators regarding content, receiving and actors.
Other than this network also canceled another Drama called Rush while it renewed Satisfaction. So as it seems from this information may be money was the main reason. Not saying that USA is a cheap network but maybe the cost of shooting all around the world and the actor charges were too high for the ratings that the show was building up. All we are waiting for is honestly to know about what did Annie decide. Is she willing to get married or will she be giving up on that and go ahead with her career with the CIA.
Covert Affairs Season 6
Season 1 of the series has about 11 episodes but with the great success it was the series then started to appear for 16 episodes per season till season 5. Over the 5 seasons we can see some significant improvement in the characters specially in that was our lead, Annie. She changed from a person who was new things and was a little hesitant to this strong and assertive CIA spy. She was shown a little apprehensive of her allotment before as she thought it was somehow related to her old boyfriend.
