The end is near for Suits, but the legal drama should have another season or two left in the tank.
Speaking to TVLine, exec producer Aaron Korsh admitted that Suits is closer to its end than the beginning, with Season 7 “likely” and Season 8 “possible”:
I just renewed [my deal with Universal Cable Productions] for two years, so I’m assuming we’re likely to have a Season 7, and it’s certainly possible we’ll have a Season 8. I would say we’re not in the upswing of the show’s life cycle. There have been shows that have lasted a long time and much longer than us, twice as long at least. I don’t know how close we are to the end, but I know we’re very likely closer to the end than we are to the beginning.
But rather than thinking about how it’s going to wind down, we just want to see how this season plays out and then after that, yeah, it might be time to start thinking about, “Where are we going with this thing?” But so far, we’ve done a good job just taking each season as it comes, and that’s probably where we’ll continue to go. This Season 5 finale, in my mind, is probably the closest thing to a series finale that I ever could have envisioned if I had envisioned one. So we’re into uncharted territory.
USA Network has already renewed Suits for Season 6.
Stay tuned as we continue to monitor the status of Suits…
