Executive producer Aaron Korsch has just spilled the beans as to what to expect for ‘Suits’ season 6.
Several fans were impressed with “Suits’” season five finale, especially when Mike is finally paying for pretending to be a Harvard Law graduate and lawyer. After Sheila revealed that he was a fake, Harvey Specter, did all he could to relieve Mike from doing any long-term jail time. As a remedy, Mike pleaded guilty to the accusations. Unfortunately, the pair was in the dark about the judge’s call to declare Mike ‘not guilty’. As a result, Mike will get to spend two years in jail – no thanks to his guilty plea.
Korsch told TV Line: “Suits season 6 will feature a brand new plot now that Mike’s inevitably going to jail.” Hewent on saying that “There’s going to be new characters, [a return] to some humor and a new setting. Our hope is that new life has been breathed into the show.” He also revealed that he and the creative team have been banking on offering the audience with something different from what they have shown in previous season. He then added: “The original premise of the show is gone. It’s gone in two ways. Obviously, the biggest and most important way is Mike no longer has a secret and he is going to be in prison. The other way that everything’s changed is, everybody from the firm was gone.” He continued, “So moving forward, we decided, ‘Let’ shatter everything and see how we, as writers, and our characters can pick up the pieces.’ That’s what season 6 is going to be about.”
In other news, Deadline reported that “Suits” season five finale lost 30% of viewership. In fact, the show has had a tough couple episodes that received only few viewers. Was the creative team and executive producer’s call to change almost everything about the show yielded from this output?
“Suits” season 6 will be back on screens either in January 2016 or early 2017.
