The hit television series "Suits" will all be about new beginnings when it returns with season 7 this summer.
The show's creator and showrunner, Aaron Korsh, said during an interview with Deadline that the "Suits" band is back but they are different now, changed. He also emphasized that the upcoming season will see changes and more new things.
"Harvey's (Gabriel Macht) running the firm. Mike (Patrick J. Adams) is now a lawyer. Rachel's (Megan Markle) a lawyer," Korsh said, referring to this new setup being the launching pad for all characters.
It bears emphasis that Mike is not new at being a lawyer, but this time, he's not a fraud anymore. He is now a legitimate attorney. Korsh said it will be interesting to see how this will impact their lives moving forward, including the relationships involved.
It is also intriguing to know what Donna (Sarah Rafferty) would want more next season as the last episode left her "wanting more." Korsh threw a hypothetical question, "Does she mean more work-wise? Does she mean more with Harvey?" That remains to be seen.
Meanwhile, when the topic shifted to the role of Jessica (Gina Torres) in season 7, Korsh had this to say, "I would never count her out." However, he also stated, "We also didn't get to see what life is going to be like in the firm without Jessica."
Conclusively, Jessica is out of the firm but never out of the show. "She's obviously always a near and dear character of the show and if opportunities arise, we would of course love to bring her back," Korsh said.
Jessica was the former managing partner of the firm and was Harvey's mentor.
It can be recalled that USA Network announced in September 2016 that "Suits" bade goodbye to Jessica. Nevertheless, NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment Chairman Bonnie Hammer said, "The door will always be WAY open for her return."
"Suits" will return with season 7 in summer. The specific air date and time has yet to be announced.
