For the last few years, Seth Peterson has made occasional guest appearances on "Burn Notice" as Nate Westen, the screw up brother of Jeffrey Donovan's Michael Westen. But Peterson has never stayed with the series for a long stretch… until now.
Deadline is reporting that not only has Peterson signed on for "Burn Notice" season six, he will also be featured in a five episode storyline. That's a strong indication that Nate Westen will play a much bigger role this year, possibly in relation to the news that Anson Fullerton murdered Nate and Michael's father and he is generally making life for the Westons hell.
Prior to "Burn Notice," Peterson was best known for his starring role in "Providence" in addition to his turns on "The Shield," "CSI," "Deadwood," "Viper," "Relativity," "Profiler" and "Charmed." Peterson also made a recent guest appearance on "NCIS."
Joining Peterson for the sixth season of "Burn Notice" is Jere Burns, who will reprise his role as Anson Fullerton through the conclusion of his storyline, alongside Kristanna Loken as Anson's rogue operative, Rachel and Lauren Stamile as Michael's CIA handler, Agent Pierce. John C. McGinley ("Scrubs") will also appear as the former CIA training officer who taught Michael everything he knows and Taryn Manning ("Hawaii Five-0") will play a prisoner who meets Fiona (Gabrielle Anwar) in federal prison.
"Burn Notice" season six will debut this summer on USA.
