Summer Finale Airs Wednesday, August 20 at 9/8c

NEW YORK – August 11, 2013 – USA Network announced today a 16-episode fifth season renewal of the hit original drama SUITS. Currently airing its fourth season, SUITS continues to be a top 10 summer scripted series in P18-49 (1.6 million), P25-54 (1.7 million), and total viewers, averaging nearly 4 million. The midseason finale is scheduled for Wednesday, August 20 at 9/8c.

“SUITS continues to fire on all cylinders, delivering provocative storytelling and complex characters that viewers can’t get enough of,” said Chris McCumber, President of USA Network. “With some of the best writing on television, and a brilliant ensemble cast, we anticipate a spectacular fifth season for a series that has become a marquee property for USA.”

SUITS centers on a fast-paced Manhattan corporate law firm led by legendary lawyer Harvey Specter (Gabriel Macht, “Love and Other Drugs”). This season saw a major shift at the firm that left Harvey at odds with his brilliant, but not-technically-legal associate Mike Ross (SAG Award nominee Patrick J. Adams, “Rosemary’s Baby”) who left to head to Wall Street as an investment banker. As the series builds to its summer finale, Mike has returned to Pearson Specter to resume his place beside Harvey, but Louis’ (Rick Hoffman, “Samantha Who”) secret threatens to unravel the firm. The series also stars Gina Torres (“Firefly”), Sarah Rafferty (“Brothers & Sisters”) and Meghan Markle (“Fringe”).

Seasons one through three of SUITS can be found on Amazon Prime while fans can catch up on the fourth season via video-on-demand.

From Universal Cable Productions, SUITS was created and is executive produced by Aaron Korsh (“The Deep End”). Doug Liman (COVERT AFFAIRS, the “Bourne” trilogy, “Mr. and Mrs. Smith”),David Bartis (COVERT AFFAIRS, “The O.C.”) and Gene Klein (COVERT AFFAIRS) of Hypnotic also serve as executive producers. SUITS is shot on location in Toronto, ON.

    Love “Suits”…. just one complaint: The profanity has to go – It’s so totally unnecessary. Adds nothing…only detracts. Surely there are enough words in the English language that can be used besides resorting to profanity & any sort of vulgar swear words. Please ‘give it a go’…okay? THANK YOU!

      I’ve watched all seasons of the show and am shocke to hear that the show even had profanity – I can’t remember hearing any. I believe you that there was, I think it just goes to show that the level of profanity is at a realistic level and I think you are hypersensitive. People do use profanity in real life, especially in emotional and tense situations of which there are a lot on the show. It is necessary, because to take it out would be to make the characters less relatable to most viewers (I understand you would not be one of them) and remove a lot of the emotion which is evoked by “profanity”. I suggest opening your mind and changing your own attitudes towards so-called swear words, which are just words like any others – even you can start using them!

    Totally agree about the profanity. The show doesn’t need it. Writers think they are adding realism, but they aren’t and only serve to alienate they’re core audience. Will USA listen?

      I am addicted to Suits, but I was conflicted because uof the have limited gutter language that the writers think these highly educated lawyers would use. Really. Bad language indicates a laminated vocabulary, or a group of friends that continue to use junior high street language. When Jessica throws out a line of obscenities , it isn’t believable. She’s a classy lady! Come on! Clean it up! You will gain watchers!
