Tv Season Info

The sixth series of USA's sturdy spy drama picks up with Michael (Jeffrey Donovan) and his crew—faithful allies Sam (Bruce Campbell) and Jesse (Coby Bell), and CIA agent Pearce (guest star Lauren Stamile)—on the trail of the scheming Anson (guest star Jere Burns). Fiona (Gabrielle Anwar), meanwhile, is forced to sit out on the action as she adjusts to her new digs in prison. While she is quick to prove to the other inmates that she can hold her own, she must also get to the bottom of an assassination attempt ordered from someone on the outside. Tom Card (guest star John C. McGinley) offers Fiona a possible way out of jail as a CIA asset, but she's not going anywhere until Michael takes down Anson. The motivation of Fiona's freedom adds fuel to Michael's pursuit, but the mission does not come without a steep and unexpected personal toll for Michael. Sharon Gless also stars.

Critic Reviews for Burn Notice Season 6

Burn Notice has followed in the grand tradition of serialized cable procedurals to make very slow narrative progress over a long period of time.

Leaves less room for the procedural aspect of the series... Week-to-week enjoyment has taken a back seat.

Dec 6, 2018 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

All is not lost in "Burn Notice: Season Six." There's still a level of fun entertainment, especially when it comes to Sam.

Nov 16, 2018 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

That stuff was fun, even as I was rolling my eyes a bit at the notion that there's another mastermind that Michael has to take down.

Nov 16, 2018 | Full Review…

Given the amount of gunplay and explosions that Sam, Michael and Fiona typically cook up on the average Burn Notice episode, its always entertaining to watch them try and slow down someone even more prone to violence.

Nov 15, 2018 | Full Review…

Season six may be one of the best seasons of Burn Notice yet. I simply can't wait for more.

Nov 15, 2018 | Rating: 4.6/5 | Full Review…

The violence quotient is higher than usual, including torture and other mayhem, but there's time for the show's usual humor.

Dec 6, 2018 | Full Review…

I haven't been this shocked in a reveal since I found out who shot J.R. Talk about one of the best cliff-hanger episodes EVER!

Nov 15, 2018 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

I was happy to see that all those elements we've all come to know and love from this show were still there.

Dec 28, 2016 | Full Review…

With the introduction of a sort of final final FINAL boss in Jere Burns' Anson, the show seemed to find its footing again after years of Michael facing down various villainous heavies, Russian nesting doll-style.

Dec 13, 2016 | Rating: 8/10 | Full Review…

The season 6 premiere contains some of the best collective performances from the cast to date as the fast-paced chess match between Anson and Michael provides a wonderful platform for everyone to shine.

Dec 13, 2016 | Full Review…

Weepy Westen may have a killer's tiny heart, but inside that heart is an even tinier... lover's heart, and you just know when there's emotion involved some serious butt-kicking is afoot. It's a strong conflict to imbue in a character

Audience Reviews for Burn Notice: Season 6

  • Mar 24, 2019
    a step right back up after last season's step back. maybe the most exciting season yet, with a lot more focus on the overall storyline rather than random side stories. and even when there were side stories, a lot of them directly tied into the main one. lots of yeeee moments. (about 2 viewings)
