Can You Still Watch ‘Burn Notice’ Online?

Burn Notice is an action-drama TV show that attracted a large number of viewers from its debut in 2007. The hit series circled around a burned spy, Michael Westen (Jeffrey Donovan). He, his trigger-happy ex, and his old Navy Seal buddy, track down the person who burned Michael in an attempt to figure out why. While the spy-drama ended back in 2013, fans of Burn Notice can still watch all seven seasons online.

What is ‘Burn Notice’ about?

To understand the premise of the show, you must first understand the term “burn notice.” When an intelligence agency determines agents or sources have become unreliable, they issue burn notices to announce the dismissal of those undependable assets. The agent or spy then loses all connections to the organization, leaving them without access to money, power, or having influence. As a blacklisted spy, Westen takes whatever jobs he can as a private investigator for Miami locals who don’t trust the cops but are seeking justice. Getting relegated to staying in his hometown of Miami ensures Westen’s family and friends never have a dull moment. 

Fiona Glenanne (former lover and weapon extraordinaire), Sam Axe (senior spy and old friend), and Westen form a trio to solve crimes involving mobsters, con artists, drug traffickers, and more while also tracking down the people responsible for Westen’s burn notice. In later episodes, Westen’s mother Madeline even becomes a critical part of some of their operations. Each episode focuses on the crew’s cases for clients while uncovering the reason behind Westen’s sudden burn notice.
