It was previously announced that the Chicago Code star will play former soldier Ethan, who becomes a subject of interest for the CIA when Michael Westen (Jeffrey Donovan) takes a shine to him.
"[My character] is really integrally involved in the case every step of the way," the actor told TV Guide. "Instead of just coming to the team and asking for help, he ends up insisting that he be involved in the process of solving it."
However, despite initial rumours that his character could recur later in the season, Lauria revealed that he has not been contacted about reprising his role.
Other actors confirmed for roles in the new season of Burn Notice include Grey's Anatomy actress Lauren Stamile, Big Love's Grant Show and WWE star The Big Show.
The comedy-drama's fifth season will premiere on June 23.
