USA finalizing deal to bring back 'Criminal Intent'

Hollywood Reporter, 8.2.09

USA Network has renewed sophomore drama "In Plain Sight" for a third season.

Additionally, the network is finalizing a deal to renew the show's companion on Sunday nights, "Law & Order: Criminal Intent."

That, combined with last week's orders for the red-hot Thursday duo of "Burn Notice" and "Royal Pains," means that USA has picked up all of its series that were up for renewal; that is an impossible feat for a broadcast network and very rare for a cable net.

But USA is completely dominating the cable ratings with big help from its slate of six original series: the newly picked up quartet and hits "Monk" and "Psych."

"It's a great run," president of original programming Jeff Wachtel said. "We have an incredible team, and we also have gotten a little lucky."

"Sight," which stars Mary McCormack as an U.S. marshal for the witness protection program, has been picked up for 16 episodes, the same order the network recently gave to "Burn" and "Pains."

There will be a change at the helm of "Sight" next season: The two executive producers , creator David Maples and Paul Stupin, will take a back seat in the day-to-day operations but stay on as consultants. Full article

Does that mean that Law & Order: Criminal Intent will be released on American television and that there will be a season 9?
