It was created by Aaron Korsh and set at a NYC law firm. The show is executive produced by Doug Liman and Dave Bartis and produced by Universal Cable Productions.
The series plot revolves around the figure of Mike Ross, a genius college dropoutwith a photographic memory and a true passion for law. One day he`s running since a drug deal that has suddenly gone bad and ends up in an interview for a position at a law firm with one of the lawyer sharks of NYC, Harvey Specter, played by the charismatic Gabriel Macht. Mike is apparently the best candidate, but is not a Harvard Law grad, or a grad at all, for that matter. Harvey hires him, and this is where it all begins. The intrigue of keeping Mike`s secret concealed, the legal issues – internal within the firm, pertaining the cases undertaken, Mike`s personal issues – all reappear in the storyline again and again.
Current season and renewal news
Suits has been nominated for numerous awards, but only individual performances by Gina Torres and Patrick J. Adams have been honored with an award. Critical reception has been consistently favorable throughout the life of the show, although the first season didn`t fare as well as the subsequent ones. At the moment, the show has a score of 8.7 out of 10 on IMDb. Just a week into Suits season 5 the network officially announced the renewal for a sixth season. Season 5 was probably its most introspective and emotional one so far, with the season finale on March 2, 2016 ending on a truly heartbreaking note – canceling his wedding to the love of his life and unwavering supporter throughout his trial for fraud, Mike has Harvey drive him to prison and we see him walking into the hardest and darkest chapter of his life still wearing his wedding tuxedo. It premiered to 2.2 million viewers and wrapped up with an audience of 1.7 million loyal fans. The sixth season premiered as a lead-in for hacker thriller Mr. Robot`s sophomore season, drawing an audience of 1.85 million viewers. It picks up where the astonishing cliffhanger of the season 5 finale left off, with Mike Ross confronting the harsh reality of his new prison life. Pearson Specter Litt is undergoing great changes, as the partners abandon the firm, and Donna, Harvey, Rachel, Jessica and Louis are stepping in to fix what`s left. Exactly how well that goes and whether Mike`s cut out to survive the prison unbroken in spirit will all be clarified very soon.
The success of Suits, which is USA’s longest-running scripted series still on the air, led to its renewal for a seventh season in early August 2016. The next season will contain also 16 episodes and should air in 2017. Stay tuned, and we’ll inform you of the release date as soon as it is set.
