Suits Season 7 now available on Netflix UK
Staff Reporter | On 13, Jul 2017
Suits Season 7 is now available to watch on Netflix UK.
The show, which is created and written by Aaron Korsh, follows two unlikely legal partners: Harvey Spector (Gabriel Macht), a talented law associate who decides to hire Mike Ross (Patrick J. Adams), a super-intelligent whiz-kid with a photographic memory. The trouble is, Mike has never attended law school.
The show has long been a highlight on Netflix for UK subscribers, but has primarily aired on Dave on this side of the Atlantic. However, last month, Dave decided to drop the series, despite it being one of the most popular programmes on its own catch-up service, UKTV Play.
“Suits has been an important and much-loved part of Dave’s schedule for a number of years, but as the channel evolves so must its programme offering,” UKTV’s channel said in a statement. “We can confirm that Dave will not be renewing its licensing deal for Suits following the sixth season of the show.”
It was sad news for fans of the series, as the seventh season promised to bring us the show’s 100th episode, while co-star Meghan Markle’s off-screen relationship with Prince Harry will also be stirring up added attention in the media.
The good news, though, is that Netflix has stepped up to snap up the show instead. A new deal inked with NBCUniversal International Distribution has given the streaming giant first-run rights in the UK, which means that Episode 1 of Season 7 is now on Netflix – within 24 hours of the season’s premiere in the USA. Episodes will now arrive weekly on Thursdays, hot on the heels of the US broadcast.
Not waiting for Season 7 will be a welcome surprise for Suits fans – doubly so, as with the latest run now available to stream, Netflix has also brought forward the UK release of Season 6: that was meant to be arriving on 18th July, but that’s now available too.
