The USA Network has announced this week that the popular drama “Suits” will return for a sixth season in July.
The new season will premiere on Wednesday, July 13 at 9/8c. The Universal Cable Productions series will be the lead-in to the previously announced second season of the Golden Globe award-winning series “Mr. Robot” on Wednesdays at 10/9c.
For the past five seasons, SUITS has centered on the fast-paced Manhattan corporate law firm, Pearson Specter Litt, led by legendary lawyer Harvey Specter (Gabriel Macht) and his not-so-legitimate associate Mike Ross (Patrick J. Adams), but after last season’s dramatic turn of events, everything has changed.
Season 6 begins immediately following the events of the shocking Season 5 cliffhanger that left Mike behind bars. After signing a plea deal to spare his colleagues at Pearson Specter Litt, Mike will be confronted with the harsh realities of prison life as he starts his two-year sentence. Meanwhile, the once bustling Pearson Specter Litt offices are a ghost town – the partners have defected, leaving Harvey, Jessica (Gina Torres), Louis (Rick Hoffman), Donna (Sarah Rafferty) and Rachel (Meghan Markle) to pick up the pieces.
Of course the firm’s troubles are far from over and they will have to deal with the fallout from Mike’s crime before they can even begin to rebuild.
