Gina Torres will be suitin’ up for another season…
USA Network has renewed its legal drama Suits, starring the 45-year-old Cuban American actress, for a fifth season.
Torres portrays Jessica Lourdes Pearson, the co-founding and managing partner of Pearson Hardman, who was mentored by Daniel Hardman when she was an associate fresh out of Harvard Law School.
The network’s order is for 16 episodes, matching the current fourth season, whose midseason finale airs next week.
Suits averages nearly 4 million viewers and 1.6 million adults 18-49.
“Suits continues to fire on all cylinders, delivering provocative storytelling and complex characters that viewers can’t get enough of,” said USA President Chris McCumber.
In addition to Torres, the series also stars Gabriel Macht, Patrick J. Adams, Meghan Markle, Rick Hoffman and Sarah Rafferty.
