It's official; the upcoming seventh season of "Burn Notice" will be the last for the show. USA Network announced on Friday that it put an end to the action drama series, which will premiere its shortened seventh and now final season this summer starting June 6.

"Burn Notice has had an incredible run over the last six years, and we could not be more proud of the extraordinary talent both in front of and behind the cameras who have collectively made this show into one of the most popular and lauded shows on TV today," said Chris McCumber, USA Network co-president.

Jeff Wachtel, co-president of USA Network, added, "From day one, Burn Notice's characters, storylines and mythology have consistently captivated a massive audience, and this final season will raise the stakes even higher, leading up to a spectacular series finale."

Lead actor Jeffrey Donovan took to Twitter to address the cancellation. "Goodbye fans. Michael Westen starts his final bow June 6. Enjoy our last season.Thank you for all your support. Make it go out with a bang!" he tweeted.

Back in November 2012, when USA picked up "Burn Notice" for a 13-episode seventh season, Donovan had suggested that it would've been the last for the series. However, a spokesperson for the network said at the time that there's still no intention to end the series.

Another cable channel, TNT, also decided to pull the plug on its shows "Southland" and freshman "Monday Mornings". Words are, there's early talk to make a two-hour wrap-up movie for "Southland", which concluded its fifth season in April.

I'm still crying about the wonderful, part surprise, part hoped for ending. I just wish we were given a reason for the cancellation of this fantastic show. Will be watching reruns everywhere. I think that they should bring it back with Michael and Fiona running a private detective show with a little help from their friends.

I don't get it. The show is/was successful, the show was intelligent, the show was played really well, the show got you your damn money. So why then cancell it? As soon there's something on the screen where you need your brain for, networks cancel it....I fail to see why though.

I'm very disappointed that the best show on tv, Burn Notice has been canceled.This is s very poor decision on the part of USA and they should seriously reconsider it!!

One of the most boneheaded moves a network could make is to cancel a top rated show that makes people think. You keep brainless crap..good job. Way to go to decrease the American IQ. Think I need to find a new network. You redirected Necessary Roughness and made it better. Never as good as Burn Notice. So why didn't you just redirect the story line would have been a fan forever.

I will really miss this show....thought this latest mess they were in needed to be resolved. Just needed a new twist. Creativity...isn't that the writers job. Why would USA cancel something so good. This show had it all..family, friends, trust and things that blew up. Who could not love Sam, Fiona, Michael and Mom. Have a Mojito and wonderful life. You will be missed.

Thank You so much for cancelling my favorite TV Drama Show. "USA" while you are at it why don't you cancel White Collar and Suits. If you would give us a reason for this, maybe we would all understand. So we will not get involved with any of new TV programs etc etc. Would like to say more but.............
