The year that changed everything for the whole world, 2019, also televised the swansong of the hit procedural drama Suits. It aired its series finale, with the ninth season sealing the fate of the show. Flash forward to four years, when the popularity of the show spiked again owing to the arrival of the first eight seasons on Netflix in mid-June.

This means that Mike Ross (Patrick J. Adams) is back at using his photographic memory to unravel the mystery of the cases along with his fellow attorney, Harvey Specter (Gabriel Macht). Owing to its arrival on Netflix, a new set of viewers identify themselves as fans of the show, anticipating when will the loose ends be tied up. The loose ends of people working at Pearson Hardman, including Donna Paulsen (Sarah Rafferty) and Rachel Zane (Meghan Markle).

This anticipation has built into a strong desire among the fans for the series to reboot and come back for a season 10. If you’re also sailing in the same boat, then we hate to disappoint you, but Suits is unfortunately not coming for a season 10. Here’s why.

Suits Season 10: Is there any chance for renewal?

Suits Season 10: Can we expect a renewal anytime soon?

Sadly, no. Suits‘ creator Aaron Korsh put an end to all the rumors of season 10 on X. In the message, he addressed several problems that would be required to overcome for Suits season 10 to become a reality. The message read:

However, that’s no reason to be down in the dumps; just because Suits season 10 cannot materialize into reality doesn’t mean that the entire TV universe will be shut down. This is a reference to a fan’s comment who said that if Rachel’s father, Robert Zane (Wendell Pierce), was featured more, they would’ve loved it. To it, Aaron quickly responded with his thoughts.

He said:

“I had an idea for a #Suits spin-off that was a prequel exploring young Robert Zane, fresh out of law school in the early ’90s.”

Later he replied:

“The network wasn’t interested at the time. I would still do that.”

Now that Suits has made a place on the Netflix library, there might be a possibility for its’ spinoff whose seed was planted in the creator’s mind, to finally surface, especially when Korsh shared some of the tidbits concerning his time on the series.

While responding to the fans’ messages on X, the creator also expressed his thoughts regarding how he wanted Harvey and Dana (Abigail Spencer) to end up together originally. Additionally, he also shared what inspired him to create the role of Louis (Hoffman) and why it was good to have only 10 episodes for the ninth and final season in the USA.   

Be that as it may, some officials from the team of Suits seriously consider the possibility of Suits coming back for Season 10. One of them is executive producer Gene Klein. Speaking to TVLine in July, Klein expressed his expectation to hear something about the renewal of the show sooner rather than later.

He said:

“In this era of reboots and reunions and all this other stuff, I’m expecting a call at some point. But I’m not aware of any serious conversations. It’s just one of those things where, in this day and age, you wouldn’t be surprised if somebody called you someday.”

Along with its availability of streaming on Netflix, Suits is also available on Peacock. Within a few weeks of its arrival, it broke the Nielsen streaming record for acquired programming. Starring Gina Torres, Meghan Markle, Rick Hoffman and Sarah Rafferty, Suits bagged the No.1 spot on the Nielsen streaming charts.

That’s not it, guys. Nielsen also reported that in the third week, the viewership of the show was exponential in season 1. This points to the possibility that this popularity might observe an ascending graph for the coming weeks on the streaming charts. Nielsen even goes so far as to predict that the show hasn’t even reached the viewing peak yet.

For those unversed, the official synopsis of Suits reads (courtesy of IMDb):

“On the run from a drug deal gone bad, brilliant college dropout Mike Ross finds himself working with Harvey Specter, one of New York City’s best lawyers.”
