USA Network announced today that Suits season 5 will be back this June, with a time change.
Suits season 5 premiere airs Wednesday June 24 at 9 p.m eastern/pacific. This is slightly different than the season 4 schedule, pushing the show to air an hour earlier than it did in Winter 2014.
This is also a bit of a shorter break between seasons than in years past (albeit, if by a week or two.) The Suits season 4 finale aired on March 4, leaving a four month hiatus between the seasons.
Because this is USA Network, we can assume that Suits season 5 will be split into two blocks. The first ten episodes will air this summer, leaving the final six to air sometime this winter — maybe just after the new year.
While the season 4 finale’s events may be waning in our minds, let’s recap. Donna left Harvey (emotionally) to become Louis’s new secretary after Norma sadly passed away. Rachel and Mike, meanwhile, are living in a happy little cocoon of engaged bliss. Let’s hope it stays that way for at least an episode or two.
This year, Suits will be followed by a USA Network original, Mr. Robot. According to TV Line which broke the news about the premiere date, the show is “a new techno-thriller about a young programmer recruited by the leader of an underground hacker group. It stars Rami Malek and Christian Slater and sounds like it will be paired nicely with the show about a lawyer who’s been lying about having a law degree.
