It is that time of the year again when everything on television is just crap. You are pondering what you’re going to end up watching during the summer holiday. Until you realize Piper Perabo will be back as the slick C.I.A spy Annie Walker. Ever since season one I have admired this series. It blends the traditional spy genre with a good amount of humor. Yet, Covert Affairs can be unforgiving to any of its characters, including Annie. As a man there are not many TV-female (action) characters you can relate to or admire. I think the last time that happened it was either with Star Trek or Stargate. Covert Affairs has had a rocky first four years. I was sure it would cancelled after its second season, but since it has become a lot darker. Piper Perabo’ personation of Annie has also become a lot darker. Annie is no longer that self-assured agent she was from season 1. She will do things her way but she has finally accepted the world as it is. Covert Affairs is one of just a few shows that tries to shoot on location. As such we have seen a good deal of Amsterdam, Bogota and Paris. I can’t wait to find out where season 5 will take us.
Covert Affairs Season 5 Preview Trailers
On June 24th Covert Affairs will be back with it first episode of 16 that are planned. The episode is entitled ‘Shady Lane’. What I can tell from the promo Annie will have to deal with a terrorist threat to the C.I.A while also dodge question about what happened in Hong Kong to Henry Willcox.
During season 5, Australian actor Nicholas Bishop will join the main cast as a special forces officer turned billionaire with whom Annie will have a complex relationship. Actress Amy Jo Johnson will recur as a counter-terrorism expert who will clash with Auggie. From this we can deduce that Annie will remain mostly a field operative while Auggie will remain at C.I.A headquarters. Which is probably for the best because I think that whole love affair thing went nowhere. In my opinion Nicholas Bishop continues the character Simon Fischer in his style. Simon Fischer died during season 3 in what most fans would argue was a disappointing turn of events. Below you can see the latest promo of Covert Affairs Nicholas Bishop.
