Gina Torres will be suiting up for another season…
A week into Suits’ fifth season, USA Network has renewed its flagship drama for a 16-episode sixth season.
The news comes after the Season 5 premiere of the legal drama, starring the 46-year-old Cuban American actress, logged 3.4 million viewers and 1.3 adults 18-49 in Live+3.
In Live+same day ratings, Suits was down slightly from the Season 4 opener (2.13 million vs. 2.50 million) but remains USA’s top drama.
The series, created/executive produced by Aaron Korsh and set at a fast-paced Manhattan corporate law firm, is also a reliable utility player
It was just used to launch USA’s new hacker drama series Mr. Robot, which was given a second season renewal last Wednesday.
Also working for Suits is the fact that the series is owned by USA, coming from Universal Cable Prods.
“Suits has set the bar high in every way and continues to be a strong performer and marquee property for USA,” said USA president Chris McCumber. Added UCP president Jeff Wachtel, “Aaron Korsh has some great surprises for the audience at the end of Season 5 that should really set future seasons on an exciting new course.”
Along with Torres, Suits also stars Gabriel Macht, Patrick J. Adams, Meghan Markle, Sarah Rafferty and Rick Hoffman.
