Is Suits nearing its end? In a recent interview with E!, star Patrick J. Adams spoke about the future of the USA Network series.
The legal drama just premiered its sixth season on Wednesday, and series creator Aaron Korsh said he’s “98 percent” sure the show will be renewed for a seventh season.
In the E! interview, Adams said season six feels like the beginning of the end:
It kind of does, and I don’t know if I get in trouble for saying that kind of thing, because who knows how long these things last, but ultimately, I think shows last usually a certain amount of time and our show isn’t a CSI, and it doesn’t have the words CSI or NCIS or whatever in front of it.”
He added that he thinks show has at least one more season in it:
I don’t think it’s designed to be a 15-year show. I think we have another season in us, for sure, of interesting story, maybe more depending on where we go after this prison storyline. There is some part of it that feels like it’s quietly starting to end itself, and I think everybody sort of feels that.”
What do you think? Do you watch Suits? How many more seasons do you think the show should last?
In the final series I hope the writers will stop using the phrase “what are you talking about” which is said about every five minutes by a different actor.
I have watched Suits sins day 1 and like very much the mix of actors. I hope to be able to see season 7 when its released to U Tube as we had to give up cable and dish TV’s because of escalating of price. I might be able to get it on fire stick. Yes writing has gone down a little but am sure it will pick-up when they review reviews from the people. Most story lines have been spot on.
This is the first time ever I agreed with every comment ever written. There’s a pretty clear point being made. I miss the real Suits…. and Harvey’s strut lol
After this season 6 of prison and the firm falling apart, I am ready for the writers to return to the drama that made the show great, Love tensions, Mike making amazing finds in the law and Bad Corporations getting their world turned upside down. Patrick is hitting on something when he says that they don’t have NCIS or CSI in their name, but they do have the key players to make the series fun, unpredictable, and long lived.
Suits is one of the finest TV shows currently on the air. I would rank it behind only The Walking Dead and Game of Thrones. It may well be the best lawyer themed TV show of all time. Better than The Good Wife, Boston Legal, and Damages, in my opinion. How much longer should it run? Patrick Adams may be right. Being great doesn’t mean a show should go on forever. Suits was probably not designed to be a 15 year show. One more solid season, unpadded, and I won’t feel cheated. Best that it not hang on after it… Read more »
