New Suits spin-off is in the works after its explosion on Netflix

The legal drama is set to get another spin-off after dominating streaming ratings since its arrival on Netflix

Good news Suits fans! A new spin-off is reportedly in the works following the legal drama's renewed success on Netflix.

Suits, which aired for nine seasons between 2011 and 2019, starred Patrick J Adams as Mike Ross, an attorney who talks his way into a job at a top New York law firm, despite dropping out of college and never attending law school.

The series focuses on Mike winning lawsuits and closing cases alongside successful attorney Harvey Specter (Gabriel Macht), while the pair hide Mike's secret.

It also famously starred Meghan Markle as ambitious paralegal Rachel Zane — her final acting role before marrying Prince Harry in 2018.

The show returned to Netflix earlier this year and has since amassed a massive viewership around the world.

After its arrival on the platform, the series racked up upwards of 3 billion views per week, according to Deadline, and has dominated the streaming ratings charts ever since.

The short-lived spin-off series Pearson — which saw Gina Torres reprise her role as Jessica Pearson, a 'powerhouse lawyer' who enters the world of Chicago politics — also received newfound popularity.

'Suits' was Meghan Markle's last acting gig before she married Prince Harry.

Earlier this week, series creator, Aaron Korsh addressed the unexpected surge in the popularity of the Suits universe, writing on X: "I always thought we were underestimated, but it turns out, even I underestimated #Suits. It's good to be the King."

And now, Korsh is said to be working on a spinoff for NBCUniversal.

It is expected to feature new characters in a new location, with Los Angeles considered a top candidate for the show's backdrop.

Deadline states that deals for the project are still being negotiated, but it is expected to be 'fast-tracked with a serious commitment.'

UNILAD has reached out to NBCUniversal for comment.

The legal drama has amassed a large viewership since its arrival on Netflix.

Back in August, Korsh said there were no Suits reboot in the works, despite the show's streaming success.

Taking to X, he wrote: "Let me say right off that there is no #Suits reboot or anything in the works.

"Strike would have to end, some network or streamer would have to reach out and then we would have to collectively want to. Which is no small thing…"

The 2023 SAG-AFTRA strike started in July of this year over ongoing labor disputes.

Alongside the 2023 Writers Guild of America (WGA) strike, it has contributed to the biggest interruption to the American film and television industries since the COVID-19 pandemic.
