Fans of TV law series Suits will be the opposite of “Litt up” to learn that the popular show is soon coming to an end, after a total of 134 episodes.
The eighth season is winding up over the next couple of months, and a 10-episode final season is expected around mid-year. Hmm, we wonder how many more name changes the law firm can squeeze into such a short time frame?
Light and engaging, Suits has been entertaining us since 2011, and will live on – sort of – with its spin-off series Pearson, starring Gina Torres, which is set for a debut this year. With any luck they’ll give the real star of the show, Louis Litt, a spin-off of his own.
Series creator Aaron Korsh has released the following statement:
“Though I know it isn’t true, it seems like only yesterday USA Network took a chance on an unestablished writer’s very first hour-long script. These days that’s a common thing, but 47 years ago when I first wrote the Untitled Korsh Project, nobody did it. Nobody except the people at USA and UCP. First and foremost I would like to thank Alex Sepiol and Dennis Kim, without whom Suits would never have gotten made. I also cannot thank Bill McGoldrick, Jeff Wachtel, Bonnie Hammer, Chris McCumber, Ted Chervin, Dave Bartis, Gene Klein, Doug Liman, Dawn Olmstead and everyone at the network and studio enough for their dedication and support throughout the years. And to the exceptional writers, cast and crew – thank you for your passion and devotion, without which, Suits would be nothing. And last but never least, to the fans who have stuck with the Suits family through thick and thin, through can-openers and flashbacks – thank you for always speaking your mind. Without you, I might start to think I’m getting the hang of this writing thing. And once that happens, nobody wins. I look forward to enraging and hopefully sometimes delighting you with the final episodes. Finally, to my wife Kate and my children Cooper and Lucy. Thank you for enduring countless late nights and times away for me to get to live my dream. I love you. Love, Aaron.”
