Suits Renewed for Season 6

Suits season 5 Premiere Recap

Harvey Specter & Co. are getting a very early vote of confidence.

USA Network has renewed Suits for a 16-episode Season 6, the network announced on Wednesday.

The news marks the show’s earliest renewal ever, just one episode into the fifth season. (The next closest was the legal drama’s Season 2 order, which came seven weeks into its freshman run.)

Suits has set the bar high in every way and continues to be a strong performer and marquee property for USA,” USA Network president Chris McCumber said in a statement. “From the incredible on-screen performances and brilliant writing to the aspirational lifestyle portrayed, we look forward to continuing to bring viewers into the world of Suits every week.”

Added Jeff Wachtel, CCO of NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment: “[Executive producer] Aaron Korsh has some great surprises for the audience at the end of Season 5 that should really set future seasons on an exciting new course.”

Suits opened Season 5 last Wednesday with 2.1 million viewers, down 15 percent from its previous premiere, but an audience that grew to 3.44 mil with DVR playback factored in.

    Yea. One less thing to worry about. Royal Pains was already renewed for next year, correct?

    • johnhelvete says:

      Correct. Royal Pains got a two season, 8 episode each season renewal last November. The season that is airing this summer is season 7 with season 8 set to air next summer.

    YAY!!

    This is good but that quote about the end of the season surprise…. most likely isn’t a good thing. How often does a show tease a big game changing surprise and its a good thing? Like Harvey getting together happily with Donna or something. No, odds are it is going to be something bad or melodramatic like he has written in the past.

  7. I’ve found that even the weakest episodes of Suits are still solid by TV standards. Love the show and the terrific ensemble of actors. Good news!

  8. schu says:

    Woohoo! But really, what’s the can opener for!?

  9. Harvey says:

    Yes! Love the show and everything about it!

  10. Kelly says:

    Yay!! :)

    Can’t help but wonder if Season 6 will be the last though.

  11. The Watcher says:

    Honest Question…

    Now that Burn Notice, Psych, & White Collar have ended, and Royal Pains is winding down… what’s left on USA other than Suits?

    I really haven’t seen anything establish itself since Suits really.

  12. Mr. Tran K says:

    More Meghan Markle. I remember her when she was one of the briefcase beauties on Deal or No Deal.

  13. Kathleen says:

    This is great! Just discovered this on amazon and have been binge watching for 5 days. Almost done with season 4. I love Louis….such an ass but so much fun to watchl

  14. Timot says:

  15. KB says:

    Awesome!

  16. Joey Padron says:

    Great news show got renewed for another season early! Season 5 been good so far.

  17. Alicia says:

    Yay!!!

  18. Sarah T says:

    Excellent news! Now if it can just get an Emmy nod (at least) already! To me, it’s one of the best shows on television with the strongest writing and acting. Definitely deserves some awards but constantly gets overlooked because it’s on USA.

    Suits is one of the best shows on T V. I think Rozzlie & Isles, Suits are 2 of the shows I can’t wait for them to come back. Justfied was there also. I miss Longmire which is on Netflix. Glades was there also.

  20. Evelyn Banks says:

    My favorite and only TV series. I absolutely love it and on pins for Season 6.

  21. Goodness says:

    I so much want Harvey and Donna together…. It won’t only be fair after everything they’ve been through together, they’ll make an awesome couple.

  22. George says:

    How dare they talk about taking this show off tv? They would be stupid?

  23. DONNA for team says:

    Love love love these characters please don’t stop!!!!

  24. Janice Bond says:

    Awesome News about Suits, about one of the only shows I watch on a weekly basis. Great acting and not bad eye candy for the females …and the males!!
