USA Network is clearly in no rush to adjourn Suits: The cable net has renewed the long-running legal drama for Season 7, it was announced Wednesday at the Television Critics Association summer press tour.
Speaking with TVLine after last March’s season ender, which found the series shaking up its premise by sending faux lawyer Mike to prison, executive producer Aaron Korsh was “not sure” if the show was nearing its endgame.
“I just renewed [my deal with Universal Cable Productions] for two years, so I’m assuming we’re likely to have a Season 7, and it’s certainly possible we’ll have a Season 8,” Korsh said. “I would say we’re not in the upswing of the show’s life cycle. There have been shows that have lasted a long time and much longer than us, twice as long at least. I don’t know how close we are to the end, but I know we’re very likely closer to the end than we are to the beginning.”
The current sixth season, airing Wednesdays at 9/8c, is averaging 3 million viewers.
Season 7 is slated to debut in 2017.
