Is it already time to bid adieu to the good old Suits? If you have also heard the rumors hinting that the beloved legal drama, created and written by Aaron Korsh, might soon be bidding farewell to Netflix, you are not alone.

Due to this, it has topped the charts on the top 10 global charts, which is quite surprising for a series that has been off-air since 2019! With the rise in demand, many fans who haven’t gotten the time to check out this legal drama television series are now very curious to know when the complete nine seasons of Suits will be available to stream on Netflix.

Many subscribers are worried that the clock might be ticking and the series might soon be removed from the catalog in the coming months! If you are patiently waiting to get some confirmation about the series status, then we can assure you that you have reached the right spot to know it all. So, it’s time to buckle up because we at Web News Observer have got you covered with all the necessary answers to the raging question, Is Suits leaving Netflix?”

Is Suits leaving Netflix?

First of all, let’s settle the ongoing wildlife that has risen from the rumors and officially confirm what the future of the beloved series looks like. As of writing this, we are happy to inform all the Suits fans that the show isn’t going anywhere anytime soon! Yes, you read it right: all nine seasons of the critically acclaimed series, which incorporates the addictive world of high-stakes law, are here to stay for the long run!

After all, the series managed to break streaming records in July with 3.7 billion views in a single week across Netflix and Peacock, which is quite commendable overall viewership results, making it one of the reasons why Netflix won’t be backing down from scraping the series from the streaming platform anytime soon! As a result, there is nothing for new and old subscribers to be worried about.

The series you’ve been longing to watch is still readily available, and there is still plenty of time left for you to catch up with the show that is set at a fictional New York City corporate law firm as it follows Mike Ross (Patrick J. Adams), who uses his photographic memory to talk his way into a job as an associate working for successful “closer” attorney Harvey Specter (Gabriel Macht), despite being a college dropout who never attended law school. In addition to this, Suits heavily focuses on Harvey and Mike winning lawsuits and closing cases while at the same time hiding Mike’s secret!

So, if you read this article, maybe consider this a sign to add the series to your watch list, as it has been waiting for you to dive into its captivating storyline on Netflix. 

The show was originally given a two-year license by Netflix. Thus, as of right now, its removal from the streaming service is planned for the summer of 2025. However, new reports indicate that the withdrawal date may have been further delayed because season 9 was also made accessible on Netflix as soon as its licensing with Prime Video expired.

The show has a separate international licensing, which is still in effect. However, it has now been asserted that the series has a five-year licensing, which means that it will end on Netflix in foreign markets in late 2024. The removal date in the UK is presently scheduled for mid-September 2024.

For your consideration, we’ll keep you updated with the changes that might be made to the license in the future. 

Until then, the fans are requested to check out the series on the streaming platform as it is also available to binge-watch on Peacock, the streaming service owned by NBC Universal. Finally, to bring more cheerfulness to the fandom, we are happy to inform you that a new series is in development with NBCUniversal in order to expand the Suits universe. Series creator Aaron Korsh is already on board with the development of a Suits offshoot, as per the sources of Deadline. As of writing this, it has been said that the deals are still being negotiated, and the project is expected to be fast-tracked with a serious commitment. 

The reports have also maintained that Korsh is expected to be the executive producer alongside David Bartis and Doug Liman, who were EPs with him on the original series. But, a rep for NBCU has declined to comment on this subject. Lastly, the new details also emphasize that this is not a revival or reboot; it would be a Suits universe series in the vein of the CSI and NCIS franchises, a theme that has been widely accepted by the viewers. 

It will also feature new characters in a new location, sources said, with Los Angeles being considered as the backdrop for the workplace drama. Even Suits creator Aaron Korsh was stunned by his series’ success in its second life. “I always thought we were underestimated, but it turns out, even I underestimated #Suits,” he wrote in a retweet of Deadline’s story on the latest streaming record broken by his show. “It’s good to be the King.”

He also commented, “I had an idea for a #Suits spinoff that was a prequel exploring young Robert Zane, fresh out of law school in the early ’90s.” he later replied on X. Further adding, “The network wasn’t interested at the time. I would still do that.”

We speculate that all these previous ideas and character arcs might be incorporated into the new show; we’ll just have to wait and see if our predictions come true.

To say the least, it will be interesting to see what the future will look like with a new series in development. You can also comment below to tell us what you expect for this new expansion of Suits.
