'Suits' renewed for Season 3 at USA
The series, starring Gabriel Macht and Patrick J. Adams, was the summer's highest rated cable drama in adults 18-49 and drew a season high 6.5 million viewers for its summer finale. Six additional episodes from the Season 2 order were already on tap for a January premiere. The Season 3 renewal is for 16 episodes.
"Quite simply, 'Suits' is as good as it gets. Sophisticated storytelling, sharp dialogue, and award-worthy performances make this show a cornerstone of our original programming lineup," USA co-presidents Chris McCumber and Jeff Wachtel say in a statement announcing the renewal. The statement also declares "Suits" is USA's "most provocative series."
The "Suits" pick-up follows USA's recent renewals of three other signature series: "Covert Affairs," "Royal Pains" and "White Collar."
