Basic info and cast
Suits is an American legal drama television series from the production company Universal Cable Productions that is currently being broadcast on the USA Network in the United States. The critically acclaimed show was developed by Aaron Korsh (The Deep End) who is leading the executive producers’ team of Doug Liman (Covert Affairs, the Bourne trilogy), David Bartis (Covert Affairs, The O.C.) and Gene Klein (Covert Affairs). Season 1 of Suits premiered on the USA network on June 23, 2011.
The storyline of Suits revolves around the dynamic duo of superstar attorney Harvey Spector (played by Gabriel Macht) and his college dropout protegé Mike Ross (Patrick J. Adams). The drama series also stars Meghan Markle, Rick Hoffman, Sarah Rafferty and Gina Torres. With some of the best writing on television and a brilliant cast, Suits has attracted a wide audience and has garnered very positive reviews from critics.
Latest season and renewal
Season 5 of Suits premiered on the USA Network in the US on Wednesday, June 24, 2015 and consisted of 16 episodes, which were broken down into two parts. During a fourth installment, the ratings have slightly dropped but the drama series still averaged 2.26 million total viewers per episode, which gave the network a good enough reason to continue with the show. A fifth chapter opened with 2.1 million viewers and although the heartbreaking finale attracted only 1.7 million fans, the average viewership for the latest installment is still above 2 million people. This was by far the most personal and dramatic chapter of Mike’s journey that ended with a very inspiring and emotional effort by Harvey to fall on the sword for his colleague and friend. When every attempt to save Mike from prison failed, we saw him driving to prison in the last minutes of the season finale. It would be very interesting to see where the creative team takes the story when the series returns and how much focus will be shifted towards Ross’s navigating his prison life.
