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 looks set to make a comeback.

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

And while the project won’t be an additional season or series’ sequel, according to the report, it’s set to exist in the Suits universe, featuring new characters, and a relocation from the original New York to a firm in Los Angeles.

The news is less surprising considering that the series took on a resurgence this year, with a huge boost to its viewership after it landed on Netflix

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.

So, while the reboot is likely to be premised on a new set of circumstances, we can assume it will follow the same format of a workplace drama with a legal focus.

Who Will Appear In The Suits Reboot?

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 confirmation that the Duchess is set to make a return to acting, rumours have been buzzing in recent months, after Markle signed with global talent agency WME, per Variety

AS for whether any other fan favourite cast members will make an appearance, like Rick Hoffman, who played partner Louis Litt, or Sarah Raffery as legal secretary Donna Paulsen, that remains to be seen.

When Will The Suits Reboot Air?

Specific details like when the series will air, where it will be available to stream, and even what it will be called 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 sooner than we think.
