Last season on "Burn Notice," Michael Westen (Jeffrey Donovan).was blackmailed by Anson Fullerton in an ultimately futile attempt to keep Fiona (Gabrielle Anwar) from being framed for murder. And while Fiona will begin season six in federal custody, all of the major supporting players have signed on to return in the sixth season.
Entertainment Weekly is reporting Jere Burns and Kristanna Loken are booked to return in multiple episodes throughout "Burn Notice" season six. Burns' Anson Fullerton was one of the architects of the organization that burned Michael years ago, in addition to being personally responsible for the death of Michael's father. Now that Anson has no further leverage to hang over Michael, he is said to be looking for “other devious resources to enact his plans” as he rebuilds his organization.
Loken will reprise her role as Rebecca, a CIA operative on Michael's team that was revealed to be a double agent working for Anson in the fifth season finale.
Meanwhile, TVLine has just confirmed that Lauren Stamile will also come back to the series as Michael's CIA handler, Agent Pierce for at least four episodes. "Burn Notice" fans may remember that her professional relationship with Michael was pretty strained by the end of the fifth season.
Other guest stars lined up for the sixth season include John C. McGinley ("Scrubs") as the former CIA training officer who taught Michael everything he knows, while Taryn Manning ("Hawaii Five-0") will play a prisoner who meets Fiona in federal prison.
"Burn Notice" season six is expected to premiere in June on USA.
