USA Renews 'Suits' for Season 6

This afternoon USA has handed a sixth season renewal to original drama series Suits. The new season will include 16 episodes and will likely debut in Summer 2016. The drama returned for its fifth season last week with 3.4 million total viewers.

Created by Aaron Korsh, the legal drama stars Gabriel Macht, Patrick J. Adams, Meghan Markle, Rick Hoffman, Sarah Rafferty and Gina Torres.

"Suits has set the bar high in every way and continues to be a strong performer and marquee property for USA," said Chris McCumber, USA Network president. "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."

"Suits has delivered a smart and sexy roller coaster ride for five seasons," said Jeff Wachtel, Chief Content Officer at NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment. "Aaron Korsh has some great surprises for the audience at the end of season five that should really set future seasons on an exciting new course."
