‘Suits’ Episode Guide (July 12): Mike Returns to Pearson Specter Litt

“Skin in the Game” Season 7 Premiere (07/12/17) – Mike returns to Pearson Specter Litt as Harvey takes the reins. Meanwhile, Louis manages the new class of associates while Donna and Rachel find their places in the new world order.

“Suits” began when legendary hotshot lawyer Harvey Specter (Gabriel Macht) took a gamble by hiring Mike Ross (Patrick J. Adams), a brilliant, but not-so-legitimate college dropout, as an associate in his prolific Manhattan corporate law firm, Pearson Specter Litt. Six seasons later, their journey together has been anything but easy – Mike was accused of and admitted to his fraud, went to prison, secured an early release and then fought to be recognized by the Bar as an official lawyer.

Beginning with a clean slate in Season 7, premiering Wednesday, July 12 at 9/8c, “Suits” will see the entire group back together again at Pearson Specter Litt each dealing with their own struggles: Harvey finally stepping up at the firm following Jessica’s (Gina Torres) departure; Mike balancing pro bono work versus corporate cases; Harvey’s secretary Donna (Sarah Rafferty) striving for more out of life; former paralegal Rachel (Meghan Markle) officially becoming a lawyer and possibly a wife; and co-managing partner, Louis (Rick Hoffman), dealing with the aftermath of a broken heart. This season, “Suits” will celebrate its 100th episode milestone on August 30, with an episode directed by star Patrick J. Adams.

From Universal Cable Productions, “Suits” was created and is executive produced by Aaron Korsh (“The Deep End”). Doug Liman (“Covert Affairs,” ”The Bourne Trilogy,” “Mr. & Mrs. Smith”), David Bartis (“Covert Affairs,” “The O.C.”) and Gene Klein (“Covert Affairs”) of Hypnotic serve as executive producers. Daniel Arkin (“90210”) and Rick Muirragui (“Men of a Certain Age,” “The Good Guys”) and Silver Tree (“The Real O’Neals,” “Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce”) also serve as executive producers.
