USA Network announced today that it has renewed its hit series “Suits” for a 16-episode fourth season. Additionally, creator and showrunner Aaron Korsh has signed an overall deal with Universal Cable Productions to continue his work on the show and to develop new scripted series.
“As a leading cable drama, ‘Suits’ is at the top of its game and continues to grow in the key demographics, drawing a passionate, young and loyal audience,” said Chris McCumber, President of USA Network. “Aaron Korsh consistently pushes the boundaries of storytelling and the series promises to deliver a provocative fourth season.”
“From the beginning, we’ve seen ‘Suits’ as a long term player for the studio and we look forward to extending our relationship with Aaron. Harvey, Mike and the rest of the ‘Suits’ crew are characters that have created a dedicated and enthusiastic audience,” said Jeff Wachtel, President and Chief Content Officer, NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment and head of UCP.
“Suits” centers on a fast-paced Manhattan corporate law firm led by legendary lawyer Harvey Specter (Gabriel Macht) and his brilliant, but not-technically-legal associate Mike Ross (Patrick J. Adams). From Universal Cable Productions, “Suits” also stars Rick Hoffman (“Samantha Who”), Gina Torres (“Firefly”), Sarah Rafferty (“Brothers & Sisters”) and Meghan Markle (“CSI Miami”).
Season three of “Suits” continues in first quarter 2014 following the Olympics, with the final six episodes, featuring guest star appearances by the most decorated Olympian of all-time (and “Suits” fan), Michael Phelps and Gabriel Macht’s famous father, Stephen Macht (The Monster Squad, “General Hospital”). Picking up in the wake of an emotional and shattering murder trial, Harvey (G. Macht) and Jessica (Torres) address the firm’s future, while Louis (Hoffman) threatens to expose the truth about Mike (Adams).
The entire series to-date will be available for binge viewing via video-on-demand and TVEverywhere leading up to the mid-season premiere this winter.
From Universal Cable Productions, “Suits” was created and is executive produced by Aaron Korsh (The Deep End). Doug Liman (“Covert Affairs”, The Bourne Identity) and David Bartis (“Covert Affairs,” “The O.C.”) of Hypnotic also serve as executive producers and Gene Klein (“Covert Affairs”) serves as co-executive producer.
“Suits” is shot on location in Toronto, ON.
