Suits made waves with its debut season in 2011, and the legal drama gained a new following when all nine seasons became available on Netflix and Peacock.
Now, exciting news for Suits enthusiasts: a new series is in the works.
While spinoffs like Pearson garnered attention amid the renewed interest in Suits, it’s essential to clarify that this isn’t a revival or reboot.
Meghan Markle won’t be reprising her role in a starring capacity.
Nevertheless, expect some similarities with the original series, albeit with significant changes.
Here’s the latest on the upcoming Suits series:
Popularity Breeds a Spinoff: Suits became a sensation on Netflix, prompting the creation of another series to follow in its footsteps.
The show set streaming records, amassing 12.8 billion minutes viewed on Netflix and Peacock within a four-week span.
Offshoot in the Works: As of October 2023, reports from Deadline confirm that Suits creator Aaron Korsh is developing a Suits “offshoot” for NBCUniversal.
While deals are in negotiation, the show is anticipated to be fast-tracked.
Cast Details: The cast remains to be determined, but the new series will introduce an entirely new set of characters.
The involvement of original series stars like Meghan Markle, Gabriel Macht, Patrick J. Adams, and Gina Torres is unclear at this point.
Plot Exploration: Details about the storyline are still under discussion.
However, according to reports, the new series will share the “same universe” as the original Suits but will revolve around a different law firm in a distinct location.
Expect a continuation of legal drama with fresh faces to cheer for.
Creators’ Comments: While the show’s creators have been relatively tight-lipped, Aaron Korsh acknowledged the streaming record’s success on social media.
In a post on X (formerly known as Twitter), he expressed, “I always thought we were underestimated, but it turns out, even I underestimated #Suits. It’s good to be the King.”
