Suits officially wrapped up its nine-year run this week, but while there won't be a season 10, there's still a possibility for the legal drama to somehow continue. Here's everything we know about the show's future.
Debuting in 2011, Suits garnered a loyal fan base over the years, and many of them stuck with the show despite the slew of character changes. Fan-favorites like Mike (Patrick J. Adams), Rachel (Meghan Markle), and Jessica (Gina Torres) all parted ways with the New York-based firm, leaving Harvey (Gabriel Macht), Donna (Sarah Rafferty) and Louis (Rick Hoffman) the only remaining original cast members to stay until the end. However, additional cast members like Alex (Dulé Hill), Katrina (Amanda Schull) and Samantha (Katherine Heigl) provided the necessary support for the series to continue until its conclusion.
Suits came to an end with the series finale, "One Last Con," which managed to pack two weddings and a birth into its running time. Harvey and Donna got married, as did Louis and Sheila, and the latter couple had a baby girl soon after. So, will we ever see these characters again?
SUITS ENDED WITH SEASON 9
USA Network announced Suits season 9 earlier this year - its final outing. Unlike its predecessors, season 9 only had 10 episodes, which meant that creator Aaron Korsh and the writers had to be wrap up all the lingering plot threads in much less time than they used to - but they managed it. Harvey, Louis and the rest of their allies were able to kick Faye Richardson (Denise Crosby) out of the firm after butting heads with her all season long. Mike was also there to help his former colleagues take down their shared adversary. The series ended on a happy note with Louis and Sheila's wedding, but in an unexpected turn of events, Donna and Harvey also tied the knot with the bonus reveal that they're both leaving the New York firm to join Mike and Rachel in their firm in Seattle. That essentially means that law office will have to undergo one more name change to reflect the remaining lawyers as Harvey transfers to the West Coast.
THERE WILL BE NO SUITS SEASON 10
Admittedly, it's surprising that Suits was able to continue for two more seasons following Torres, Adams and Markle's exit in season 7. The decision to move forward despite half of the original cast leaving was ballsy, and frankly it's still debatable whether or not the decision was for the best. While there's nothing against the new characters, Suits main hook was the great chemistry among its key players - particularly the dynamic between Mike and Harvey. This is why it was a no-brainer for Adams to reprise his role a few more times before the show bowed out. While Suits is formally finished and there will be no season 10, the fact that the show ended on the idea that Mike and Harvey are teaming up again - this time, for the greater good as they work primarily on class-action law suits make fans happy.
SUITS CAN CONTINUE WITH PEARSON
As the story closes in New York (with no plans of a Seattle-based follow-up), another one can continue in Chicago with Pearson. Suits' first off-shoot series debuted this year and focuses on Torres' Jessica Pearson as she enters the dirty world of politics in Chi-Town. After her decision to leave the New York firm and corporate law behind, she found herself thrust in an entirely new environment. Pearson wrapped up its first year with 10 episodes and reviews are promising. No word yet whether or not a season 2 is in the cards, but if it continues, there's always a chance that any of the other Suits characters can pop out to help their former boss.
