‘Suits’ Universe Is Expanding With a New Series

Suits is back — well, sort of.

The acclaimed USA Network series, which has seen a significant resurgence in popularity this year, is gearing up for a return to television. According to a report from Deadline, a fresh show, set in the high-stakes corporate law universe of Suits, is in the early stages of development.

This prospective series comes on the heels of Suits finding a new legion of fans after it was added to Netflix in June. The series shattered records, amassing 3.14 billion minutes of watch time — a pretty big accomplishment for a show that ended pre-pandemic.

The creator of the original series, Aaron Korsh, is planning to collaborate with NBCUniversal on this yet-untitled project. However, Korsh has made it clear that he’s not interested in a reboot nor a spinoff. Instead, he’s looking to mirror the structure of anthology crime dramas like NCIS or CSI, but with a legal twist.

The show would expand the Suits universe to Los Angeles, where Korsh shared he wants to explore workplace dynamics in the city’s high-pressure legal environment.

Despite the excitement, there’s still a small snag in the development process due to the ongoing SAG-AFTRA strike. Still, sources close to the development have hinted at serious commitment and a fast-tracked production schedule as soon as they get the green light.

This development marks the second time the Suits universe has attempted to branch out, following “Pearson” in 2019, a spinoff focusing on Gina Torres’s character, Jessica Pearson, which only lasted one season on air.

With an expansion of the universe, fans are also hoping that at least a few of the original series’ cast members make an appearance. However, executive producer Gene Klein has expressed doubts about any potential return of Meghan Markle reprising her role as Rachel Zane, since she might be a bit busy being the Duchess of Sussex.
