USA NETWORK ORDERS FOURTH SEASON OF CAPTIVATING

HIT SERIES “Suits

 

CREATOR/SHOWRUNNER AARON KORSH SIGNS OVERALL DEAL WITH UNIVERSAL CABLE PRODUCTIONS

 

Drama Ranks Among Cable’s Top Five Scripted Series in P18-49 in Q3

 

NEW YORK – October 24, 2013 –  USA Network announced today a 16-episode fourth season renewal of the critically-acclaimed original drama Suits.  Additionally, creator and showrunner Aaron Korsh has signed an overall deal with Universal Cable Productions to continue his work on Suits and to develop new scripted series.

 

“As a leading cable drama, SUITS is at the top of its game and continues to grow in the key demographics, drawing a passionate, young and loyal audience,” said Chris McCumber, President of USA Network. “Aaron Korsh consistently pushes the boundaries of storytelling and the series promises to deliver a provocative fourth season.”

 

“From the beginning, we’ve seen SUITS as a long term player for the studio and we look forward to extending our relationship with Aaron. Harvey, Mike and the rest of the SUITS crew are characters that have created a dedicated and enthusiastic audience," said Jeff Wachtel, President and Chief Content Officer, NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment and head of UCP.

 

In third quarter, SUITS was among the top 5 in P18-49 and the top 10 in P25-54 in all of TV’s primetime scripted series. The drama was the #1 scripted series on television, broadcast or cable, Tuesday nights among P18-49. The series centers on a fast-paced Manhattan corporate law firm led by legendary lawyer Harvey Specter (Gabriel Macht) and his brilliant, but not-technically-legal associate Mike Ross (Patrick J. Adams). From Universal Cable Productions, SUITS also stars Rick Hoffman ("Samantha Who”), Gina Torres ("Firefly”), Sarah Rafferty (“Brothers & Sisters”) and Meghan Markle ("CSI Miami").

 

Season three of SUITS continues in first quarter 2014 following the Olympics, with the capitivating final six episodes, featuring guest star appearances by the most decorated Olympian of all-time, Michael Phelps (who happens to be a SUITS fan) and Gabriel Macht’s famous father, Stephen Macht (“The Monster Squad,” “General Hospital”).  Picking up in the wake of an emotional and shattering murder trial, Harvey (G. Macht) and Jessica (Torres) address The Firm’s future, while Louis (Hoffman) threatens to expose the truth about Mike (Adams).

 

The entire series to-date will be available for binge viewing via video-on-demand and TVEverywhere leading up to the mid-season premiere this winter.

 

This season, USA broke new digital ground as it rolled out innovative social and digital engagements including second screen syncs for every episode. Leading into the premiere, USA was the first network to partner with Tinder, a social discovery app, which introduced SUITS characters into people’s match stream. This generated a recording-setting half a million matches in four weeks. The network also rolled out a new chapter of the award-winning Suits Recruits, an interactive, multi-platform social game. Suitors engaged in record numbers with the legal sequel Suits Recruits: Class Action, which showed an increase of 76% in uniques and 81% in visits from last year.

 

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") and David Bartis (Covert Affairs, "The O.C.") of Hypnotic also serve as executive producers and Gene Klein (Covert Affairs) serves as co-executive producer.  SUITS is shot on location in Toronto, ON.

    Great news!!!

  • Alec

    Suits is a great show! It’s actually renewed for a 16-episode 4th season. This is great news! Such an awesome cast.

  • Shepherd

    I still enjoy the show so this is good news, but last season was my least favorite so far. I hope it gets better for S.4.

  • joey

    i agree season 3 was not good at all very boring but a good show. if they have another weak season they will lose me.

  • Ryann

    Awesome!! Love it, this season has been ace

  • rgxx

    I never heard of this show – Ever until now.

  • Freddy Arrow

    Agreed that season 3 has only been OK. Less drama and more lawyering in season 4, please.

  • Markitos

    Great! :D

  • Jon

    Suits is easily one of the top 5 shows on Tv. This season they really damped up the game. Great storyline and character development

  • DenverDean

    That will give Suits 60 episodes, since we’re seeing syndication deals at less than 80 (The Unit 69, Flashpoint 75, Nikita 73, if it gets deal), it’s getting close enough to earn at least an abbreviate fifth season.

  • Dochas

    Season 3 was its weakest. Harvey lost a lot of his fire. I hope S4 will bring that passion back. Harvey is at his best being arrogant, unbeatable and being THE closer. Love this show.

    SN – Is anyone else having security issues when they log on to TVBTN? I never have before but suddenly, this week, every time I log on here, I get a security warning about blocked malicious content. I tried to email TVBTN but the link appears dead or my security will not let me open a new window.

  • Scandalicious

    Such a great show! Glad it got renewed!

  • Jordan

    I read “Sluts” Renewed for Season 4 and I was like: “I never heard of that show!”

  • Edward

    Good show with a talented cast, but the 3rd season’s focus on one boring case didn’t do it any favors. Also wanted more Mike and Harvey banter, they were separated for most of the season.

  • Dan

    Did anyone actually think this would get cancelled?

    I’m waiting to hear about Necessary Roughness which is 50/50

  • thesnowleopard

    Not exactly shocking but good to hear.

    So, have we heard yet about Necessary Roughness or not? Also, what’s going on with Covert Affairs?

  • Macy

    thesnowleopard

    Covert Affairs got renewed a month or so ago.

  • pol

    what about whitte collar?

  • Feedback

    This season was subpar. It wall focused on the murder trial of a British national accused of committing murder in a foreign country and being prosecuted by a New York District Attorney. WTF?

    The show needs to really step up its game to come back from that total hogwash.

  • P3TE

    Yes!! This is my favorite show on USA.
