USA Network picks up 'Suits' for Season 3

USA Network delivered some good news to “Suits” fans today: Harvey Specter and Mike Ross aren’t going anywhere. The network has renewed the legal drama for a third season.

The news that “Suits” was being renewed for a 16-episode third season was announced today in a statement from USA’s co-presidents, Jeff Wachtel and Chris McCumber. “Quite simply, ‘Suits’ is as good as it gets. Sophisticated storytelling, sharp dialogue and award-worthy performances make this show the cornerstone of our original programming lineup,” said their join statement.

“Suits,” which is currently on hiatus and will be back in January with six new episodes to finish out its second season, stars Gabriel Macht as a Manhattan attorney and Patrick J. Adams as his associate, who didn’t actually go to law school.

The network recently renewed “White Collar,” “Covert Affairs” and “Royal Pains,” but there’s still no word on the fate of “Necessary Roughness,” “Common Law,” “Fairly Legal” or “Political Animals.”

“Suits” will return Thursdays in January on USA Network.
