Suits is the legal drama that follows a college dropout, Mike Ross, who manages to impress a big lawyer, Harvey Specter, with his eidetic memory and lands a job at a huge law firm. The show, which was critically acclaimed and praised for its well-developed characters and storyline, first premiered on USA Network on June 23, 2011. Its quick-paced plot development and the actor's performances were also praised.
The show was nominated for various awards including the TV Guide Award, and People's Choice Awards, with Gina Torres winning Outstanding Performance In A Television Series at the NHMC Impact Awards and Best Supporting Actress/Television at the Imagen Foundation Awards.
The show has had a successful run for nine seasons. Here's what's in store for the show's future:
The ninth season of Suits was renewed in January 2019. It was also announced that it would be the final season of the show. At the time, the show was the longest-running original scripted series on USA Network. The ninth season was renewed for 10 episodes as opposed to the previous season which had 16 episodes. The final episode at the end of nine seasons would be 134.
“Suits has played an instrumental role in our network’s DNA for nearly a decade,” Chris McCumber, President, USA Network and SyFy had said about the decision to end the series. “I and everyone at USA Network sincerely thank Aaron Korsh, our partners at UCP, and the entire Suits family for their tremendous creativity, devotion, and support over a truly amazing run.” The series came to an end after the cast's contract expired and Megan Markle, who played Rachel Zane in the show became the Duchess of Sussex. Her counterpart, Patrick J. Adams as Mike Ross also decided to discontinue the show. The show was then concluded in the best way possible, to do it justice.
Aaron Korsh, the creator of the series shared: "Though I know it isn’t true, it seems like only yesterday USA Network took a chance on an unestablished writer’s very first hour-long script. These days that’s a common thing, but forty-seven years ago when I first wrote the Untitled Korsh Project, nobody did it. Nobody except the people at USA and UCP." He went on to thank the people behind the scenes and added, "And to the exceptional writers, cast and crew – thank you for your passion and devotion, without which, Suits would be nothing. And last but never least, to the fans who have stuck with the Suits family through thick and thin, through can-openers and flashbacks – thank you for always speaking your mind. Without you, I might start to think I’m getting the hang of this writing thing. And once that happens, nobody wins."
Much before the announcement for the conclusion of the show was made, the possibility of a spin-off with Jessica Pearson was making rounds. It was announced that the season seven finale of Suits would serve as a backdoor pilot to the spin-off series. Following the end of Suits, Pearson premiered on July 17, 2019. It follows "powerhouse lawyer Jessica Pearson, as she enters the dirty world of Chicago politics." The show was unfortunately canceled after the first season. This mainly had to do with the show's viewership which did not cut the mark.
