USA Renews 'Suits'; Sets Premiere Dates for 'Falling Water' and 'Eyewitness'

During its presentation at the Television Critics Association's summer press tour, USA renewed its original drama series Suits for a seventh season and announced October debut dates for new dramas Falling Water and Eyewitness.

Suits has been renewed for a 16-episode seventh season set for a premiere in 2017. The pickup comes just three episodes into its sixth season. The renewal means the drama will hit the 100 episode mark.

In its sixth season, the drama stars Gabriel Macht, Patrick J. Adams, Rick Hoffman, Meghan Markle, Sarah Rafferty and Gina Torres.

Aaron Korsh created the drama. He executive produces with Doug Liman, Dave Bartis, Daniel Arkin and Rick Muirragui. Universal Cable Productions and Hypnotic Films & Television produce.

The 10-episode first season of Falling Water will debut on Thursday, October 13 at 10/9c.

The drama is a mind-bending thriller intersecting reality and unconscious thoughts. It centers on three unrelated people who slowly realize that they are dreaming separate parts of a single common dream. Each of them is on a mysterious and highly personal quest - one is searching for his missing girlfriend, one is searching for a lost child, one is looking to cure his catatonic mother - and it is the clues found in their collective dream that come to guide them. The deeper they dig though, the more they come to realize that their missions touch on stakes that are much larger than their individual agendas. That the visions found in their common dream just might hold the key to the fate of the world.

The drama stars David Ajala, Will Yun Lee and Lizzie Brochere.

Blake Masters created the drama and will executive produce with Gale Anne Hurd and Juan Carlos Fresnadillo. Universal Cable Productions and Valhalla Entertainment will produce.

The 10-episode first season of Eyewitness will premiere on Sunday, October 16 at 10/9c.

When two innocent teenage boys secretly meet up in the forest, they witness a shooting and barely escape with their lives. Desperate to keep their relationship a secret and in fear of being found by the perpetrator, they remain silent but soon learn that what has been seen cannot be unseen and when you witness a horrible event it changes everything, forever.

The drama stars Julianne Nicholson, Tyler Young, James Paxton, Gil Bellows, Matt Murray, Tattiawna Jones and Warren Christie.

Ari Hasak created the drama and will executive produce with Jarl Emsell Larsen. Universal Cable Productions will produce.
