The #1 scripted series on cable in 2010 in the coveted P18-49 demo promises more suspense, more drama and more action than ever before.

BURN NOTICE stars Jeffrey Donovan as Michael Westen, a blacklisted spy who finds himself stranded in sun-soaked Miami. The action-packed season four commenced with a new counter-intelligence expert, Jesse Garcia, played by Coby Bell (“Third Watch”), who loves to fight bad guys just as much as Michael does. Also heating up the night with our hot undercover agent are Fiona (Gabrielle Anwar), the beautiful ex-IRA operative and Michael’s ex-girlfriend; Sam (Bruce Campbell), our favorite washed-up military intelligence muscle; and Michael’s mother (Emmy Award-winner Sharon Gless), who is one tough cookie herself.

This season, we will see Michael and Jesse work together to track down a stolen document containing highly classified government secrets; we’ll watch as Michael meets with Jesse’s old handler one last time; see Michael escape a tactical assault team threatening his life and those around him; and even see Michael forced to work side by side with his enemy … all while the team is trying to stay one step ahead and get one step closer to figuring out the mystery behind Michael’s burn notice. Upcoming guest stars include Dylan Baker, Jay Karnes, Tim Matheson, Raphael Sbarge, Leo Fitzpatrick, Alexi Gilmore, Michael Jace, Callie Thorne and Daniel Pino.
