A new series expanding on the world of streaming sensation Suits is rumored to be in early development with creator Aaron Korsh back at the helm, this time working with NBCUniversal.
The show will bring on new faces in a new setting, though still residing in the realm of the Suits universe, according to Deadline. The spinoff won’t be a reboot or sequel to the original series, and Los Angeles is being considered as a location. Show creator Aaron Korsh and executive producers David Bartis and Doug Liman are said to be involved in talks with NBCUniversal, but nothing has been decided yet.
NBCUniversal was not immediately available for comment, but Variety said it is a “high priority” for the studio.
Old and new fans can’t seem to get enough of the clever characters and expertly crafted plotlines, with Suits dominating the streaming world for most of the summer, being the top-ranked show on streaming, according to Nielsen.
Suits saw a revival of its popularity after switching the first eight seasons from Prime Video to Netflix in August. The platform signed a nonexclusive deal for $200K – $400K per episode for the streaming rights through 2025, which it shares with Peacock.
Since then, a renewed enthusiasm for the series arose, making it the number one show on the platform this week, overtaking Ozark. Not bad for a series that concluded its original run four years ago.
The legal procedural has been a hit with fans and broke records as the show with the most number one rankings on Nielsen’s Streaming Top 10 chart, topping the list 12 weeks in a row.
“I always thought we were underestimated, but it turns out, even I underestimated Suits,” Korsh posted on X. “It’s good to be the King.”
The series ran on the USA Network for nine seasons, concluding its final season in 2019. It stars Patrick J. Adams, Gabriel Macht, Rick Hoffman, Meghan Markel, Sarah Rafferty, and Gina Torres. Suits had one short-lived spinoff on the USA Network, Pearsons, starring Torres, which ran for one ten-episode season.
