After nine seasons on the air that makes it the longest-running original scripted series on the network, USA Network announced that the 10-episode final season of legal drama Suits will premiere July 17 – the same day that spinoff series Pearson starring Gina Torres is set to premiere. Suits suits up for a final season run at 9 p.m. ET, with Pearson following close behind at 10 p.m. ET.
Created by Aaron Korsh, USA Network's Suits is executive produced by Korsh, Doug Liman, David Bartis, Gene Klein, Genevieve Sparling, Ethan Drogin, and Christopher Misiano:
The 10-episode final season of Suits picks up with Manhattan corporate law firm Zane Specter Litt Wheeler Williams facing uncertainty and change yet again after Robert Zane (Wendell Pierce) took the fall with the Bar Association to save Harvey (Gabriel Macht). After his sacrifice, Samantha Wheeler (Katherine Heigl) is left reeling from the loss of her mentor, and while trying to console her, Harvey realizes that he doesn't want to lose the most important person to him: Donna (Sarah Rafferty).
Season 9 will follow the legendary lawyer and COO balance their relationship with work, as they fight to salvage the firm's tarnished reputation alongside their partners, Louis Litt (Rick Hoffman), Alex Williams (Dulé Hill), Katrina Bennett (Amanda Schull), and Samantha. As the season progresses, our core characters' personal lives will be explored more deeply than ever before, setting up the series conclusion, in which everyone will finally be forced to decide exactly who they are and what kind of lawyers they want to be.
Co-starring Bethany Joy Lenz, Simon Kassianides, Eli Goree, Isabel Arraiza, and Chantel Riley, Pearson was also created by Korsh – who serves as executive producer alongside showrunner Daniel Arkin, Liman, Bartis, Klein, Kevin Bray, and Chris Downey:
Pearson centers around the world of recently disbarred NYC powerhouse lawyer Jessica Pearson (Gina Torres) as she adjusts to down and dirty Chicago politics. Newly appointed as Chicago Mayor Bobby Novak's (Morgan Spector) right hand fixer, Jessica is quickly embroiled in a crooked and dangerous new world where every action has far-reaching consequences. With her compulsion to win, Jessica is forced to reconcile her unstoppable drive with her desire to do the right thing – two things very much at odds.
