Suits is finally coming to network TV, but not in the way you expected! Find out when you can finally enjoy the hit show without cable or streaming!

When Suits debuted on the USA Network in 2011, it was one of the last entries in the “Blue Sky” period that made the channel so popular. It followed Mike Ross (Patrick J. Adams), a college dropout who was also an absolute legal genius with a photographic memory. He ended up landing a job for Harvey Spector (Gabriel Macht), a hotshot attorney impressed by Mike’s skills. The pair thus work together while trying to keep quiet about how Mike isn’t really a lawyer.

The show was a major success with a great supporting cast of Gina Torres, Sarah Rafferty, Rick Hoffman and a young Meghan Markle as Rachel, a paralegal and Mike’s love interest. Adams and Markle left in season 7 with Katherine Heigl, Dulé Hill and Amanda Schull joining. 

The show ended in 2019 with nine seasons, 134 episodes, and a short-lived spin-off, Pearson, starring Torres. It had a decent following with reruns on the USA Network, but in 2023, the series found a huge new audience when it landed on Netflix, becoming the most watched show on the streamer. 

The success has led to NBC ordering a pilot for a new spin-off, Suits: LA, which will focus on some new characters in the same universe. Right now, the only way to watch the original show is on Netflix or Peacock, but thankfully, there’s a new way to watch it on free TV!

Where is Suits airing on free TV?

Per Variety, MyNetworkTV will be the first place to show Suits on free TV, starting this fall. The syndicated network is available in 25 media markets with nearly 200 affiliates, making for a huge range for viewers. There's no specific date set yet but it's expected to begin airing in September.

The pickup was announced Monday by Frank Cicha, executive VP of programming for Fox Television Stations. 

"It’s become increasingly more difficult, if not impossible, to launch obscure product on broadcast TV. ‘Suits’ is arguably the most buzzworthy scripted series of the last half decade, and MyNet looks forward to amplifying its success by introducing it to the broadcast television audience. And we’re discussing some fun ways to do just that."

Sean O’Boyle, exec VP and national syndication sales manager for NBCUniversal Syndication Studios, added his own feelings. 

"With its witty dialogue, engaging plots and enjoyable characters, ‘Suits’ has proven its popularity in the streaming space, and is the right show at the right time to engage linear TV audiences across the country. We are thrilled to continue our successful partnership with MyNet in bringing ‘Suits’ to broadcast television."

This seems to mark the first time a basic cable series was syndicated first to streaming before broadcast. Suits fits in well with other MyNetwork TV offerings such as Chicago Fire, Chicago PD and Law & Order: SVU. It should also help expand the show to a larger audience who don’t have Netflix or Peacock.

The pick up for free TV once more shows the amazing life of Suits and how this show has been more popular since it ended than it was during its prime airtime. 

Suits is streaming on Netflix and Peacock.
