It is with great pleasure that we get to share the news that “Suits” will have Harvey Specter (Gabriel Macht) and Mike Ross (Patrick J. Adams) back in court for season 5…. Let’s not forget to mention Rachel Zane (Meghan Markle) and Donna Paulsen (Sarah Rafferty), half of the reasons to watch “Suits” obviously! This was kind of expected considering the currently airing fourth season of the legal drama is averaging 4 million viewers. USA Network has ordered an additional 16-episode fifth season expected to debut next summer.
President of USA Network Chris McCumber said in a press release on Monday, August 11:
“Suits continues to fire on all cylinders, delivering provocative storytelling and complex characters that viewers can’t get enough of,”
“With some of the best writing on television, and a brilliant ensemble cast, we anticipate a spectacular fifth season for a series that has become a marquee property for USA.”
The summer finale of season 4 is expected to air on Wednesday, August 20 at 9/8c.
For those series geeks that enjoy legal eagles taking centre stage in the court room, don’t miss “Suits” if you’ve never had to opportunity to catch one of the best legal dramas on TV in decades. Here is some info about the show, courtesy of suits.wikia.com:
“Harvey sets out to recruit a new hotshot associate from a pool of Harvard graduates and hires the only guy that manages to impress him. Mike has both book smarts and street smarts, but the legal prodigy never actually went to law school. In order to serve justice and save their jobs, both of these unconventional thinkers must keep up the charade that he did.”
