covert affairs season 5 nic bishop ryan mcquaid gi 'Covert Affairs' Season 5 casts 'Body of Proof's' Nic Bishop

There’s a new face in the spy game of “Covert Affairs” Season 5. Nic Bishop (“Body of Proof”) has been cast as Ryan McQuaid, a new regular character coming with the return of the show in the summer of 2014.

McQuaid is described as a “handsome, magnetic and charming” man who first meets Annie Walker (Piper Perabo) out in the field. This former Navy SEAL and current private contractor (who happens to be worth billions) is at first an uneasy ally for CIA operative Annie. But she soon begins to suspect that McQuaid has a secret agenda.

The 16 episodes of “Covert Affairs” Season 5 will pick up after Annie’s return to the CIA fold. Her time deep undercover trying to take down Henry Wilcox has left its mark on the wild-card agent, and Annie will have to pay the price as she tries to return to her old life in the new season.

Although best known to American TV audiences as Peter Dunlop on “Body of Proof,” Bishop has also appeared on numerous television shows, including “CSI,” “Necessary Roughness” and the Australian soap, “Home and Away.”

No premiere date for “Covert Affairs” Season 5 has been announced, but the show will return at some point in Summer 2014 on USA.
