On Tweeter a few people are saying the show has been renewed but I don't see anything from the cast members so I don't know how true it is.
I'm on Twitter too, and also follow Piper, the writers, Covert Affairs, Kari, and some of the crew members (I stopped following Chris because his cockiness and arrogance was getting to me). It was confirmed in several tweets today that the show is definitely renewed. Dear God help us if they push A&A into season five.
If so, I have to say I am surprised since the show has been awful this season (except for Eyal's 5 minute appearance).
I agree. Considering the negative feedback about the show this year, and the poor ratings, I'm also surprised it got a renewal. It almost makes me wonder if the CA people said to USA that they have some really good stuff planned for a season five and USA bought it and renewed them. With the massive drop in ratings, I can't believe the show got renewed, but perhaps USA said (not in that article of course) that if the ratings don't improve, then they're canceling the show and next season is one chance for them to get the ratings back up.
Also, something interesting to note with the article I posted is how off their facts are when it comes to the ratings. The article claims the show racked up 4 million viewers this year. Uh........no it didn't. Another site that tracks the ratings of TV shows stated that the show only averaged 2.5 million viewers this summer which had dropped from 3.06 million who tuned in last season. With that significant of a drop in the ratings, how CA ever got a renewal, I'll never know. How do really great TV shows get canned after one season, and the boring soap opera we got this year with CA gets a renewal? I don't get it.
Maybe those so-called "4 million viewers" are those who tuned in to watch Eyal's return?
