“Suits” aired its Season 6 summer finale last week, so when will the series return for the last six episodes of the current installment?
According to a newly released teaser for the remaining episodes of the season, the hit USA legal drama series will go back on air in the winter.
Series actress Meghan Markle, on the other hand, revealed a more specific return date in one of her latest Instagram posts. “The last six episodes of the season will air in January 2017 — but we are filming all of it now so we don’t skip a beat,” she wrote on the social networking site, alongside a photo of what appears to be the front door of Rachel (Markle) and Mike’s (Patrick J. Adams) apartment.
In Seasons 4 and 5, the show’s midseason premiere aired during the last week of January, so fans can expect Season 6 to resume around that time next year.
While USA Network has yet to announce an exact return date for the show, series creator Aaron Korsh has already revealed some details about Episode 11 of the season.
“I think the first episode back is a little surprising,” Korsh told Deadline in a recent interview. “Let me rephrase that. It’s both what you would expect and also, a little surprising.”
Korsh revealed that Harvey (Gabriel Macht) and Louis (Rick Hoffman) — who were both left to run Pearson Specter Litt after Jessica (Gina Torres) stepped down as a name partner in the summer finale — will both behave as fans would expect them to, but both will also “have little dashes of things” that fans wouldn’t expect.
“At the end of that episode, Donna (Sarah Rafferty), as you would expect, a little bit steps in and basically lays out a plan of what needs to be done for these two to get along, and hopefully, that plan will work,” Korsh said. “But we’re going to have, I hope, some growth in Harvey and his ability to handle things moving forward. But absolutely, there’s going to be conflict, and Donna’s going to have to step in and help, and another surprise character is going to help Donna do that in Episode 11.”
"Suits" Season 6, Episode 11 is currently in production under the direction of Adams.
