Suits

Sea­son 6 M-Net (*101) 20:30 Drama

TV Plus (South Africa) - - 2 MARCH -

The gavel is fall­ing on sea­son 6 of le­gal drama show Suits (2011-cur­rent) when the sea­son’s fi­nal ar­gu­ments are heard. While de­tails are locked away se­cretly, we do know that episode 16 tonight is called “Char­ac­ter & Fit­ness” and those are steps in the US le­gal sys­tem that must be con­ducted be­fore some­one’s ad­mit­ted to the bar (law so­ci­ety). And it looks like it’s go­ing to be trou­ble­mak­ing Mike Ross (Pa­trick J Adams) who’s try­ing to go le­git in law.

How­ever, the show may have to act fast be­cause view­er­ship has sagged even more – only 1.92 mil­lion tuned in for the mid-sea­son fi­nale in Septem­ber 2016, com­pared to 3.47 mil­lion in the first sea­son. Rumour has it they could be pulling a quickie like fan­tasy show Game Of Thrones (2011-cur­rent) and have a short­ened sea­son 7 (only seven episodes if gos­sip is to be be­lieved) and a fi­nal eighth sea­son. And it’s en­tirely pos­si­ble, hints se­ries cre­ator Aaron Korsh: “I don’t know how close we are to the end, but we’re very likely closer to it than that we are to the be­gin­ning”.

Sea­son 7 started film­ing late in De­cem­ber 2016 and so far ev­ery­one’s back on set – hot­shot lawyer Har­vey Specter (Gabriel Macht), Mike, Louis Litt (Rick Hoff­man) and Donna Paulsen (Sarah Raf­ferty). Fans could be see­ing less of Rachel though – Meghan’s not only busy with her am­bas­sador role at the World Vi­sion char­ity, she’s also dat­ing Bri­tish royal Prince Harry!

Some­thing fans can look for­ward to is a visit from Har­vey’s ex-boss Jes­sica (Gina Tor­res), as well a pos­si­ble on­screen ro­mance for Har­vey and su­per sec­re­tary Donna. They’ve been teas­ing a hid­den, pre-ex­ist­ing re­la­tion­ship since day 1 and with the show end­ing (soon), this may be the time to set things straight.

The end is in sight for Mike (left) and Har­vey.
