When Will 'Suits' Return For Season 6? Catch Up On These Legal Dramas In The Meantime
There's a lot to admire about USA's programming, especially now that the critically acclaimed, trippy psychological thriller Mr. Robot is on the schedule. But one thing that's particularly nice if you're a fan of USA's shows is that you can usually rely on them to return for another season. The network's long-running Suits is no exception, but the questions remains: When will Suits return for Season 6?
Have no fear, Suits fans. There's no need to be sad after Wednesday night's Season 5 finale airs because the show will definitely be back for your viewing pleasure. USA renewed Suits for Season 6 back in July 2015, just after Season 5 of the legal drama premiered. Season 6 of Suits will include 16 episodes, just like most of the seasons that have come before it.
Unfortunately, no official premiere date for Season 6 of Suits has been announced just yet. However, looking at when past seasons of the series have premiered should give us an idea. All five seasons of the show have premiered in either June or July, so we can probably expect Season 6 of Suits to premiere in June or July of 2016.
If that is the case, that would only be about three months away, which is not too much time to have to wait for a new season, especially since we've still got a good chunk of time before most shows wrap up their seasons in the spring. However, Suits' absence still kind of leaves you high and dry without a legal drama to enjoy, if that's your thing. Luckily, TV loves lawyers, and there are plenty of legal dramas out there for you to enjoy, no matter what type of law you're into.
Law & Order
Law & Order gives you a little bit of crime solving and a little bit of courtroom drama for the price of one procedural. Plus, you're likely to find it playing somewhere at all hours of the day.
Ally McBeal is a show for people who want to watch characters go through interpersonal drama with a side of law. That can often be just as contentious and provocative as a legal battle, after all.
The Good Wife
There are only a few episodes left of The Good Wife before it sings its swan song on May 8, so you might as well see what all of the fuss is about, if you haven't already. The critically acclaimed drama has a little something for everyone: exceptional acting, political intrigue, a Gilmore Girls alum. Who could ask for anything more?
How To Get Away With Murder
With an executive producer like Shonda Rhimes and a leading lady like Viola Davis, you know you're going to get an entertaining hour of television. How to Get Away with Murder delivers just that — and keeps you on the edge of your seat the entire time.
Better Call Saul
Better Call Saul is the closest thing we have to Breaking Bad still being on TV. Though Better Call Saul definitely makes you nostalgic for old Heisenberg, it definitely stands on its own as an eerie, evocative, and exceptional piece of television.
The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story
Though The People v. O.J. Simpson is a fictionalized account of one of the most famous court cases in American history, it's the manner in which it comments on the way we live now that makes it a truly compelling series.
And if you object to all of these shows, Suits should be back soon enough.
