NEW YORK, Sept. 4 (UPI) -- Next week's Season 7 finale of "Burn Notice" will be the USA Network drama's series ender, as well.

"This final episode is a must-see for any 'Burn Notice' fan -- whether you've been with us since the pilot or just caught the occasional marathon on USA," show creator Matt Nix said in a statement Wednesday. "It's bittersweet to bring the series to an end, but I'm really happy to be leaving viewers with a great series finale. It's satisfying and has some major surprises."

"When 'Burn Notice' began in 2007, it was one of the shows that reinvented summer television and helped create a new television-watching season," Chris McCumber and Jeff Wachtel, USA Network's co-presidents, said in a joint statement.

"As the series draws to a close, it leaves behind an unparalleled legacy as one of the most popular and transformational shows on television."

The network described the Sept. 12 finale as "an explosive conclusion that one beloved character will not survive."

"Michael Westen [played by Jeffrey Donovan] finds himself at the end of the road," a synopsis said. "Still at odds with the CIA and unable to forgive himself for betraying his team, he will need to regain the trust of those closest to him to finish what he started. However, in order to face the last of his demons some sacrifices must be made and lives risked, maybe even his own."
