The sixth season of USA Network’s dramatic series Suits will kick off on Wednesday, July 13, 2016 at 9pm ET/PT with Gabriel Macht and Patrick J. Adams returning in starring roles. Guest stars for the upcoming season of Suits will include Erik Palladino (ER), Paul Schulze (Nurse Jackie), and Malcolm Jamal Warner (American Crime: The People vs. OJ Simpson). The series was created by Aaron Korsh and Korsh executive produces along with Doug Liman (Mr. & Mrs. Smith), David Bartis (Covert Affairs), Gene Klein, Daniel Arkin (90210), and Rick Muirragui (Men of a Certain Age).

Suits season five averaged 3.7 million viewers and was USA Network’s top original series. The award-winning critically acclaimed Mr. Robot will follow Suits on the network’s primetime lineup, airing at 10pm ET/PT.

The Plot: For the past five seasons, Suits has centered on the fast-paced Manhattan corporate law firm, Pearson Specter Litt, led by legendary lawyer Harvey Specter (Gabriel Macht) and his not-so-legitimate associate Mike Ross (Patrick J. Adams), but after last season’s dramatic turn of events, everything has changed. Season six begins immediately following the events of the shocking season five cliffhanger that left Mike behind bars. After signing a plea deal to spare his colleagues at Pearson Specter Litt, Mike will be confronted with the harsh realities of prison life as he starts his two-year sentence. Meanwhile, the once bustling Pearson Specter Litt offices are a ghost town – the partners have defected, leaving Harvey, Jessica (Gina Torres), Louis (Rick Hoffman), Donna (Sarah Rafferty) and Rachel (Meghan Markle) to pick up the pieces. But the firm’s troubles are far from over and they will have to deal with the fallout from Mike’s crime before they can even begin to rebuild.
