If you too are waiting to get some information about season 6 of Covert Affairs and desperately want to see your favorite characters return to the 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 on the 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 canceled the show. So, it seems the show shall not be returning for 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 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 increased as well. Hence maybe it was the financial issue that prevented the show from returning.

Not only this but the show’s rating can also be held responsible for the show not returning. The show earlier had a fan following and viewer count about 32% higher than in season 5, while the views of season 5 were 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 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 had the 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 it seems from this information, maybe money was the main reason. Not saying that the 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 what did Annie decide. Is she willing to get married, or will she give up on that and go ahead with her career with the CIA?
