USA Network will bring back the popular drama “Suits” in mid-January. The series will return for the back half of Season 6 on Wednesday, January 25 at 10/9c.
Season 6 of the Universal Cable Productions series is the #1 scripted cable program of 2016 in its timeslot in all key demos. To date, SUITS’ sixth season is averaging 3.5MM total viewers in Live+7 data and garnering an additional 6.2MM streams across VOD and digital platforms, this according to the network’s announcement this morning. The network previously announced that the legal drama will return for Season 7, set to air in 2017.
Season 6 returns with six new episodes, picking up immediately after the midseason cliffhanger that left Pearson Specter Litt in the hands of managing partners Harvey Specter (Gabriel Macht) and Louis Litt (Rick Hoffman). The pair is forced to put aside their professional ambitions and personal animosities in an effort to come together to keep their struggling firm afloat after the departure of Jessica Pearson (Gina Torres).
Now more than ever, they will rely on the wit and intuition of Donna Paulsen (Sarah Rafferty) and Rachel Zane (Meghan Markle), their most trusted advisors, to keep them on track. Finally reunited with Rachel, Mike Ross (Patrick J. Adams) re-adjusts to life outside of prison and navigates the reality that he is no longer a lawyer. Meanwhile, love is in the air following Louis’ proposal to his pregnant girlfriend, Tara (Carly Pope).
The series was created and is executive produced by Aaron Korsh (“The Deep End”). Doug Liman (“Covert Affairs,” ”The Bourne Trilogy,” “Mr. & Mrs. Smith”), David Bartis (“Covert Affairs,” “The O.C.”) and Gene Klein (“Covert Affairs”) of Hypnotic serve as executive producers. Daniel Arkin (“90210”) and Rick Muirragui (“Men of a Certain Age,” “The Good Guys”) and Silver Tree (“The Real O’Neals,” “Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce”) also serve as executive producers.
