The premiere date of “Suits” Season 6B has been announced.
According to USA Network, the remaining six episodes of the current installment will start airing on Wednesday, Jan. 25, at 10 p.m. ET.
Series creator Aaron Korsh teased Season 6, episode 11 in an interview with Deadline last September.
“I think the first episode back is a little surprising,” Korsh said. “Let me rephrase that. It’s both what you would expect and also, a little surprising.” The exec producer revealed that Harvey (Gabriel Macht) and Louis (Rick Hoffman) will both behave as fans would expect them to, but both will also “have little dashes of things” that the audience wouldn’t expect.
In the Season 6 summer finale, Harvey and Louis were both left to run Pearson Specter Litt (P.S.L.) after Jessica (Gina Torres) stepped down as a name partner of the law firm. In Season 6, episode 10, Jessica realized that she didn’t want to be a corporate lawyer anymore, so she left P.S.L. in the hands of the duo and go with her lover Jeff Malone (D.B. Woodside) to Chicago.
“We’re going to have, I hope, some growth in Harvey and his ability to handle things moving forward,” Korsh added. “But absolutely, there’s going to be conflict [between him and Louis], and Donna’s (Sarah Rafferty) going to have to step in and help [fix the pair’s differences], and another surprise character is going to help Donna do that in episode 11.”
Patrick J. Adams, who plays Mike on the series, directed the winter premiere. In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, the actor said that the episode is setting the viewers off “on this path of what’s next for everybody.”
“Mike is desperately searching for where he’s going to fit next and realizing that even though he’s paid the price and done his time that it’s still something that’s going to get in the way of him accomplishing his dreams now. He can’t really shake the fact that he was sent to prison,” Adams said of what fans can expect from his character in episode 11. “It’s a great episode.”
