USA has ordered a second season of the CIA action drama "Covert Affairs," it was announced Thursday, Aug. 19.

It was kind of a no brainer since the freshman series starring Piper Perabo as a green CIA operative has been doing well in the ratings, averaging 5.4 million total viewers.

It's also the No. 1 new series of the year among the 18-49 demo, drawing in an average of 2.52 million.

Christopher Gorham, Sendhil Ramamurthy, Peter Gallagher, Kari Matchett and Anne Dudek also star.
