Here's Everything We Know So Far About The New "Suits" Spinoff "Suits: L.A."

Suits had a MAJOR cultural moment last year after the series began streaming on Netflix. In fact, earlier this year Nielsen revealed that the series gained over 57.7 billion viewing minutes across 141 episodes across Netflix and Peacock in 2023. So, it's, like, kinda a big deal.

The series originally aired on USA from 2011–2019, so it's even wilder that the series would become more popular than ever, four years after it ended.

This show was massive, folks. And due to its extreme success, NBC announced that a new Suits spinoff is currently in the early stages of development. So, here's everything we know about the new series so far:

1.The spinoff was first confirmed back in November by Universal International Studios president Beatrice Springborn. The spinoff will be called Suits: L.A., and Springborn said it will “have the same energy and good looking people that the original did.”

9.The spinoff hasn't been picked up for a full season yet, however depending on how well the pilot episode is received, it will hopefully get more episodes.

"Fingers crossed that the pilot gets a series order," Lex added. "But, I'm pretty excited. Pretty sure we'll get our series order, for sure."

10.Since Suits: L.A. exists in the same universe as Suits, there also might be some original cast members joining the series. "It's not impossible,” Lex said.

"I would love that myself if there was, but we'll see. You never know," she added.
