When season five of the USA Network fan-favorite series SUITS returns this summer, viewers will be treated to a cameo by TNT NBA Analyst, Charles Barkley. A long-time client of Pearson Specter Litt, Barkley surfaces in an effort to help Harvey make amends with a fellow partner at the firm. Season five premieres on Wednesday, June 24 at 9/8c with Barkley scheduled to appear in an episode later this season.
Season 4.5 ended on a high note with the March 4 finale hitting a season high in live +7 in the key demos P18-49 (1.6MM) and P25-54 (1.8MM), and drew 3.4MM total viewers according to Nielsen. Overall, the second half of the dynamic fourth season drew an additional 1.6MM video-on-demand transactions according to Rentrak, pushing SUITS to a combined total audience of 5MM.
In the season five premiere, Harvey (Gabriel Macht) has difficulty adjusting to changes around the office, which affects his ability to do his work. Donna (Sarah Rafferty) must acclimate to working for Louis (Rick Hoffman), who’s certain it’s only a matter of time before she returns to Harvey. Mike (SAG Award Nominee, Patrick J. Adams) and Rachel (Meghan Markle) must decide how and when to share their big news, but their excitement about their future together will take a back seat to Harvey and Mike’s latest case. And an up-and-coming partner makes his presence known to Jessica (Gina Torres) , confronting her about whether Harvey’s way of doing business is beneficial to the firm.
Leading up to the June 24 season premiere, fans can catch up on every episode of season four beginning Saturday, June 20 at 9am ET with the “SUITS Undressed” marathon. Previous seasons of the series are available on Amazon Prime. For all things SUITS, fans can visit www.usanetwork.com/SUITS.
