The drama, which earned a Golden Globe nomination for Callie Thorne last year, returns Wednesday, Jan. 23 at 10/9c with the remaining five episodes of Season 2.
"It's a show that we really like even though the second season was a little bit more, maybe, internal in its storytelling than we would have liked, but they're really embracing blowing it out in the third season," USA Co-President Jeff Wachtel told TVGuide.com at the cable network's winter TV preview session Monday. "Similar to what Covert Affairsdid this year where one of the main characters all of a sudden exploded and it was this incredible theme of Annie and the bad girl, the teenager and the evil stepmom — we're really going to swing for the fences with that type of storytelling on Necessary."
