Over the course of its eight seasons, UCP’s sophisticated and always stylish drama Suits has captured the hearts and imaginations of USA viewers around the world who have made it an international hit. Now, as the ninth and final season premieres, The Paley Center for Media is delighted to salute the show's epic run with a new exhibit featuring photography and iconic costumes from series costume designer Jolie Andreatta.
Visitors to the exhibit will be able to take an up close look at the costumes of the hit show's characters “Harvey Spector” (Gabriel Macht), “Donna Paulsen” (Sarah Rafferty), “Louis Litt” (Rick Hoffman), “Samantha Wheeler” (Katherine Heigl), “Alex Williams” (Dulé Hill), “Katrina Bennett” (Amanda Schull), “Jessica Pearson” (Gina Torres), “Mike Ross” (Patrick J. Adams), and “Rachel Zane” (Meghan Markle).
The final season of Suits picks up with Manhattan corporate law firm Zane Specter Litt Wheeler Williams facing uncertainty and change yet again after Robert Zane (Wendell Pierce) took the fall with the Bar Association to save Harvey (Gabriel Macht). After his sacrifice, Samantha Wheeler (Katherine Heigl) is left reeling from the loss of her mentor, and while trying to console her, Harvey realizes that he doesn’t want to lose the most important person to him: Donna (Sarah Rafferty). Season nine will follow the legendary lawyer and COO balance their relationship with work, as they fight to salvage the firm’s tarnished reputation alongside their partners, Louis Litt (Rick Hoffman), Alex Williams (Dulé Hill), Katrina Bennett (Amanda Schull), and Samantha. As the season progresses, the personal lives of core characters will be explored more deeply than ever before, setting up the series conclusion, in which everyone will finally be forced to decide exactly who they are and what kind of lawyers they want to be.
The exhibit will also offer a special costume preview of Pearson, the much anticipated spin-off centered on the riveting character Jessica Pearson played by Gina Torres. Pearson brings us to the world of recently disbarred NYC powerhouse lawyer Jessica Pearson as she adjusts to down and dirty Chicago politics. Newly appointed as Chicago Mayor Bobby Novak’s (Morgan Spector) right-hand fixer, Jessica is quickly embroiled in a crooked and dangerous new world where every action has far-reaching consequences. With her compulsion to win, Jessica is forced to reconcile her unstoppable drive with her desire to do the right thing—two things very much at odds.
