Shanks will play Victor, described by Spoiler TV as “a spy who has been working for the Burn Notice Organization (BNO) for some time. A well-traveled operative, who’s seen and done it all, Victor is every bit Michael’s [series lead Jeffrey Donovan] equal when it comes to knowledge and ability. But while Michael has some regard for human life, Victor is a wild card, who has no qualms about leaving collateral damage in his wake. Victor encourages Michael to embrace his new life as a burned spy.”
Shanks’ first episode will be “Bad Blood,” the sixth of the new season — currently scheduled to air on August 14, according to Michael Shanks Online.
In the meantime, Stargate fans can catch Shanks in the upcoming movie Stargate: Continuum, on DVD and Blu-ray July 29.
Burn Notice stars Jeffrey Donovan, Gabrielle Anwar, Bruce Campbell and Sharon Gless. The show returns with new episodes Thursday, July 10. Read more about the series at USA’s official site.
