The 5th season of the show premiered last week, and the 3.4 million viewers that watched it was all the reason USA needed to confirm a 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 president Chris McCumber.
Jeff Watchtel, the chief content officer for NBC Cable Entertainment and Universal Cable Prods. added: “(Showrunner) 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.”
Suits revolves around two main characters, Harvey Specter, played by Gabriel Macht, and Mike Ross, played by Patrick J. Adams.
