USA Gives ‘Suits’ A Second Season

The USA Network found ratings gold in an odd couple of sorts. Their lighthearted summer legal drama “Suits,” which pairs a high-powered Manhattan attorney (Gabriel Macht) with a brilliant law school dropout (Patrick J. Adams) as his new associate, averaged more than 6 million viewers and turned out to be their third best performing first-year series. As a result, the network renewed the series for a second season, ordering 16 new episodes. The series compliments standouts “Burn Notice” and “Royal Pains.” “’Suits’ exceeded our expectations on every level with its sharp writing, engaging ensemble cast and incredible production values,” USA co-presidents Jeff Wachtel and Chris McCumber said in a statement. “Quickly embraced by our viewers, critics and the industry as a series that pushes the envelope of the USA brand, we needed no further evidence to greenlight a second season.” The best part of the pickup? The cast gets to celebrate together; they finish production this week in Toronto.
