USA renews 'Suits' for a fourth season
USA has renewed "Suits" for a 16-episode fourth season.
The announcement was accompanied by series creator Aaron Korsh signing a new overall deal with Universal Cable Productions to continue with "Suits" and develop new scripted projects.
"As a leading cable drama, 'Suits' is at the top of its game and continues to grow in the key demographics, drawing a passionate, young and loyal audience," blurbs Chris McCumber, President of USA Network. "Aaron Korsh consistently pushes the boundaries of storytelling and the series promises to deliver a provocative fourth season."
"Suits" is still in its third season, with six episodes remaining. They'll premiere in the first quarter of 2014 after the winter Olympics.
"From the beginning, we’ve seen SUITS as a long term player for the studio and we look forward to extending our relationship with Aaron. Harvey, Mike and the rest of the 'Suits' crew are characters that have created a dedicated and enthusiastic audience," states Jeff Wachtel, President and Chief Content Officer, NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment and head of UCP.
