Like many USA series, it appears that the second season of Burn Notice will be split up into two parts.
Entertainment Weekly reports that the original 12 episodes that was ordered for season 2 was expanded to 16 episodes. The first 9 episodes will be aired during the summer, with the last 7 airing in early 2009.
In my personal opinion, I don't like this. While series like Psych and Monk can handle the split better because each episode is stand alone, Burn Notice (at least for season 1) has much more of an overarching story which could be hurt by interrupting it.
None the less, more episodes is never a bad thing
