Grab your briefcases — and sunglasses: A new version of Suits is now coming to NBC, and to the West Coast. 

As of February 1, 2024, NBC has confirmed that a spin-off pilot episode of the hit legal drama series Suits, which ran on USA Network from 2011-2019, is currently under the works.

Speculation that a potential spin-off was in the works started in fall 2023, when Beatrice Springborn, president of Universal International Studios, spoke at an entertainment industry conference called Content London. There, she referred to the show as Suits L.A., which has now been confirmed to be the show's official title.

“We are working on it right now,” she told the audience, per Variety. She also mentioned that the new series will “have the same energy and good looking people that the original did.”

“It is amazing-looking people in great clothes but at the core of it, you can’t have a show that’s successful with just that. It has to have great storytelling and great character work. So how do you do something that can be ongoing, have a gloss to it and be a continuing series that everyone wants?” she also said of the show's potential and production.

While it is too early for a premiere date, we know it will air on NBC, and filming will begin in March 2024 in Vancouver, Canada. This time around, the setting will take place in Los Angeles instead of New York City.

Although the premiere date and cast members have not yet been announced, we know that the creator of the original series, Aaron Korsh, will be involved in the show's creative choices. We also have a description of the show's general, high-stakes plotline.

''Ted Black, a former federal prosecutor from New York, has reinvented himself representing the most powerful clients in Los Angeles. His firm is at a crisis point, and in order to survive he must embrace a role he held in contempt his entire career. Ted is surrounded by a stellar group of characters who test their loyalties to both Ted and each other while they can’t help but mix their personal and professional lives. All of this is going on while events from years ago slowly unravel that led Ted to leave behind everything and everyone he loved,'' a press release reads.
