Suits Casts Carly Pope

Suits Season 6 Enlists Popular Alum Carly Pope to Assist Louis

Suits‘ latest cast addition is sure to be, er, popular.

Carly Pope, who starred on the late WB series Popular and recurred on The CW’s The Tomorrow People, has joined Season 6 of the USA Network drama, TVLine has learned.

Pope will recur as Tara Messer, a cultured and perceptive commercial architect. When Louis reaches his wits’ end with Stu Buzzini (Melissa & Joey‘s Ian Reed Kesler) and the other Wall Street traders, he brings in Tara to help partition them away.

Other newcomers to the series include The People v. O.J. Simpson‘s Malcolm-Jamal Warner (as a prison counselor), as well as ER‘s Erik Palladino and Nurse Jackie‘s Paul Schulze (as Mike’s fellow inmates).

Check out the official Season 6 description below:

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, Louis, Donna and Rachel to pick up the pieces. But 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.

Pope’s other TV credits include Game of Silence, Outlaw, 24 and Dirt.

Suits returns Wednesday, July 13 at 9/8c.
