USA Network has given a fifth season to its flagship drama “Suits.” Deadline.com reports that the series will return in the summer of 2015 for 16 episodes, the same number of installments as the current fourth season.
The show’s midseason finale will air next week, with the show averaging almost 4 million viewers and 1.6 million adults in the 18-49 demographic.
USA Network hasn’t yet decided the futures of two other returning summer series it owns, “Covert Affairs” and “Royal Pains,” the story adds. It also hasn’t announced whether it will renew the summer show “Graceland,” from Fox TV Studios.
Its new dramas — “Rush” and “Satisfaction” — have been slow to gain viewers, and the network is likely to wait before making a decision, the piece adds.
