Another year is coming to a close, and as we’re getting ready to celebrate the start of 2014, you may be wondering when all of your favorite USA shows are returning.
Fortunately, you don’t have to wonder any longer because the network has announced premiere dates for Psych, White Collar, Suits and a new comedy called Sirens.
First up, Psych makes its return on Wednesday, January 8 at 9pm with the start of season 8.
The new season will consist of 10 episodes, with Shawn and Gus traveling to London and coming face to face with Despereaux (played by Cary Elwes) in the premiere.
One of the episodes, called “A Nightmare on State Street” was selected by fans, and there will also be a remake of “Cloudy with a Chance of Murder,” an episode that aired during the first season. Season 8’s guest stars will include Mira Sorvino, Phylicia Rashad, Kristy Swanson, Anthony Michael Hall, Tom Arnold, Billy Zane, Loretta Devine and Bruce Campbell.
White Collar season 5 will have its mid-season premiere the following night, on Thursday, January 9 at 9pm. When the drama returns, Curtis Hagen (guest star Mark Sheppard) continues to blackmail Matt Bomer‘s Neal Caffrey, who has to end up taking on his final assignment without the rest of the FBI finding out.
And Bridget Regan will stop by for a multi-episode story arc, playing Rebecca Lowe, who with Neal and Mozzie, are closing in on solving the Mosconi Codex.
Unfortunately, fans have to wait an additional two months after the return of Psych and White Collar for the final six episodes of Suits season 3 — on Thursday, March 6 at 9pm, to be exact.
Following an emotional murder trial, Harvey and Jessica must start contemplating the future of the firm. And the truth about Mike may come out when Louis threatens to expose everything right out in the open. Guest stars in this back half of of the season include Zeljiko Ivanek, Jamey Sheridan, Damon Gupton and Patrick Fischler, along with Gabriel Macht’s father, Stephen Macht.
Also, Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps will stop by, playing a fictional version of himself. As we reported on back in August, Scottie tries to sign Phelps as a client when both she and Harvey have to deal with their “prickly” past.
Suits has already been renewed for a fourth season.
Finally, USA is debuting a brand-new half-hour comedy called Sirens immediately following the Suits mid-season premiere, on Thursday, March 6 at 10pm.
This new show centers around three Chicago EMTs who are considered to be the best in their profession but can be unruly in their personal lives. The series stars Michael Mosley as Johnny, Kevin Daniels as his best friend Hank and Kevin Bigley as a new recruit named Brian, as well as Jessica McNamee as Theresa, who works at the Chicago PD and is Johnny’s ex.
Season 1 will consist of 10 episodes. And guest stars in the freshman run will include Jean Smart, Loretta Devine, Bill Nunn, Lenny Clarke, Nora Dunn and John Scurti. Denis Leary and Bob Fisher serve as executive producers.
Jackie de Crinis, executive vice president of original programming at USA, said of the latter two shows, “As a top cable drama, Suits has a huge following of young viewers, making it a perfect segue to Denis Leary & Bob Fisher’s brand of comedy. Both series feature sharp, witty banter from an ensemble of great characters.”
