USA Network has yet to decide on the future of its legal drama “Suits.” But during a recent Q&A with fans on Twitter, series creator and executive producer Aaron Korsh revealed that he’s pretty confident that the Gabriel Macht and Patrick J. Adams-led series will be renewed for Season 8.

In response to a fan question, Korsh wrote that he’s expecting the show to be picked up for another season. In another post, Korsh tweeted that there’s an “excellent” chance for an eight season.

In an interview with TVLine in March last year, Korsh said that he was “not sure” whether or not the show was already nearing its endgame. “I would say we’re not in the upswing of the show's life cycle,” Korsh said at the time. “There have been shows that have lasted a long time and much longer than us, twice as long at least. I don’t know how close we are to the end, but I know we’re very likely closer to the end than we are to the beginning.”

As for Adams, he told E! News last July that he felt the show was nearing its swan song. “I don’t think it’s designed to be a 15-year show,” he said. “There is some part of it that feels like it’s quietly starting to end itself, and I think everybody sort of feels that.”

Just last week, Deadline reported that Korsh closed a new two-year overall deal with Universal Cable Productions (UCP), making “Suits” Season 8 renewal more likely. Under the new pact, Korsh — who had been under an overall deal at UCP since December 2012 — will continue as showrunner on “Suits” and will spearhead the planned “Suits” spinoff, starring Gina Torres as her “Suits” character Jessica Pearson. Korsh will also develop new projects.

Korsh, who is a Wharton graduate and an ex-investment banker, began his career in television as a production assistant on the CBS’ sitcom “Everybody Loves Raymond.” He later scored writing gigs on ABC’s legal drama “The Deep End” and ABC’s sitcom “Notes From the Underbelly.” After working as a co-executive producer on “Suits,” Korsh was quickly promoted to executive producer and showrunner.

“Suits” Season 7 is set to premiere on Wednesday, July 12 at 9 p.m. EDT on USA Network.
