From the beginning, SUITS has centered on the fast-paced Manhattan corporate law firm, Pearson Specter Litt — but last season, their world was shaken to its core when Mike Ross (Patrick J. Adams) signed a two-year plea deal admitting his fraud to spare his colleagues Harvey (Gabriel Macht), Jessica (Gina Torres) and Louis (Rick Hoffman). In Season 6, Mike deals with the harsh realities of prison life, while his relationship with his fiancé Rachel (Meghan Markle) and the future of the firm is unknown. With Pearson Specter Litt’s troubles at a peak, Donna (Sarah Rafferty) must help bring them all together to not only save the firm, but also the friendships they have all dedicated their entire career and lives to.
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. & Mrs. Smith”), David Bartis (“Covert Affairs,” “The O.C.”) and Gene Klein (“Covert Affairs”) of Hypnotic serve as executive producers. Daniel Arkin (“90210”) and Rick Muirragui (“Men of a Certain Age,” “The Good Guys”) and Silver Tree (“The Real O’Neals,” “Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce”) also serve as executive producers.”

I am SO HAPPY Suits was renewed!!!!
I would be very disappointed if Suits didn’t return!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I really love this show and hope it continues. Please keep.
Love this show!!! Please don’t cancel it, just clean up the language so others will love it again!
I look forward to watching Suits. I love every character in it. Please don’t cancel!!!
Started as a great show. Has deteriorated to see which character can get the most swear words per sentence. Shut it off because the story was lost in the vocabulary.
Love the show it has to keep going, with law there is so much to show and share….awesome- great cast
Love the show!
If they want their ratings to climb they should put it back into their old time slot. There is a clear correspondence to the day and time slot and the ratings drop. The last four weeks ratings have dropped but there is a new competing show in Legion on another channel.
I added a package that included BRAVO to my cable just to watch this show.
My husband and I both love this show. There aren’t many that we can watch together, and we are really happy Suits will continue.
