Brush Up On Your Legal Skills, A ‘Suits’ Reboot Is In The Works

Could our favourite law firm be returning to screens?

Suits fans rejoice, our favourite franchise is making a comeback, this time set in Los Angeles.

Nearly four years after the hit show left our screens for good, Deadline reported that series creator Aaron Korsh is “in development for a Suits offshoot” with NBC Universal.

Korsh and the rest of the creative team have been busy since then, with filming of a pilot episode scheduled between 25 March and 11 April in Vancouver.

The news is less surprising when you consider the huge boost in viewership ‘Suits’ received after it landed on Netflix in 2023. 

So whether you’re a die-hard fan or a recent convert, keep scrolling for everything we know about the Suits reboot.

What Will The Suits Reboot Be About?

If you haven’t got around to bingeing the original series yet, allow us to catch you up. Suits centres on university drop-out Mike Ross (Patrick J. Adams), who impresses famous litigator Harvey Specter (Gabriel Macht) with his photographic memory to earn a job at the firm that Harvey is a partner at. The series followed the unlikely duo’s successes, while at the same time working to conceal Mike’s lack of qualification.

The reboot focuses on a new set of circumstances but will follow a similar format of a workplace drama with a legal focus.

According to project details on IMDb, Suits: L.A. will focus on a Ted Black (played by Stephen Amell), a former New York prosecutor who sets up an L.A. law firm specialising in criminal and entertainment cases. This sets it apart from the original Suits series, where legal dramas usually focused on mergers and acquisitions in New York. 

While the plot for Suits: L.A. focuses on new characters and a new location, the fact that lead character Ted Black is from New York leaves room for interesting connections to the original show (and cast).

Who Will Appear In The Suits Reboot?

Arrow and The Flash star Stephen Amell plays the lead role of Ted Black in Suits: L.A. The other actors tied to the series so far are Troy Winbush, Lex Scott Davis, Bryan Greenberg, Josh McDermitt and Alice Lee.

None of the original cast are set to appear in the pilot episode but Deadline has reported that Patrick J. Adams, who played Mike Ross, has shown interest.

As for whether any other fan favourite cast members will make an appearance, like Rick Hoffman, who played partner Louis Litt, or Sarah Rafferty as legal secretary Donna Paulsen, that remains to be seen. It all really depends on whether NBCUniversal decides to order a series after the pilot is done.

The original series also famously starred Meghan Markle as the ambitious paralegal Rachel Zane, in her last television role before she became a member of the royal family. While there’s been no official confirmation that the Duchess is set to make a return to acting, rumours have been buzzing in recent months, after Variety reported that Markle signed with global talent agency WME. She also made an unexpected return to acting in December when she starred in a commercial for coffee brand Clevr.

When Will The Suits Reboot Air?

While production dates for the pilot episode have been made public, specific details of when the series will air are yet to be announced.

According to Deadline, the project is being “fast tracked with a serious commitment”, so we could expect to see it on our screens later in 2024 or 2025.

In the meantime, you could check out the first spin-off series Pearson or revisit the original Suits, which has a re-watch podcast in the works with Patrick J. Adams and Sarah Rafferty.
