'Suits' renewed for fifth season
USA’s Suits is dressing up for a fifth season. The cable network has renewed the legal dramedy for another 16 episodes for next year. “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.”
So far this summer, the current fourth season is averaging about 4 million viewers, including DVR playback. This current season included a big plot shift at the firm that left Harvey (Gabriel Macht) at odds with his legal associate Mike Ross (Patrick J. Adams) who left to head to Wall Street as an investment banker. The show’s midseason finale airs Wednesday, Aug. 20.
