USA has picked up legal drama "Suits" for a fourth season -- and swanky suits and ties around the world breathed a sigh of relief.
The fourth season of the drama, centered on a Manhattan corporate law firm led by a legendary slick lawyer (Gabriel Macht) and his brilliant (bootleg) associate (Patrick J. Adams), will consist of 16 episodes.
"Suits" recently wrapped the first half of its third season -- and was among TV’s top five scripted shows in the 18-49 demo during its summer run. The remaining six episodes will air in the first quarter of 2014 after the Olympics, and will feature Olympian Michael Phelps as a guest star.
“As a leading cable drama, 'Suits' is at the top of its game and continues to grow in the key demographics, drawing a passionate, young and loyal audience,” network President Chris McCumber said in a statement. “Aaron Korsh consistently pushes the boundaries of storytelling and the series promises to deliver a provocative fourth season.”
Additionally, it was announced that "Suits" creator and showrunner Korsh has signed an overall deal with Universal Cable Productions to continue his work on the drama, as well as develop new scripted series.
