USA Network has ordered a 16-episode sixth season of “Suits” from producer and USA corporate cousin Universal Cable Productions. Season 5 of the drama premiered last week to 3.4 million viewers.
“‘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. “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.”
The series stars Gabriel Macht and Patrick J. Adams in the legal drama. Executive producers are creator Aaron Korsh, Doug Liman, David Bartis and Gene Klein of Hypnotic, Anton Cropper, Daniel Arkin and Chris Downey.
“‘Suits’ has delivered a smart and sexy roller coaster ride for five seasons,” said Jeff Wachtel, chief content officer, NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment and president, Universal Cable Productions. “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.”
