Rejoice, Suits fans! USA announced Wednesday that the show will come back for a 16-episode sixth season.
“Suits has set the bar high in every way and continues to be a strong performer and marquee property for USA,” said USA Network President Chris McCumber in a statement. “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 legal drama had its season 5 premiere last Wednesday, and drew an audience of 3.4 million viewers.
“Suits has delivered a smart and sexy roller coaster ride for five seasons,” said Universal Cable Productions President and Chief Content Officer for NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment Jeff Wachtel. “[Creator] 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.”
