Netflix is once again giving the opportunity for a cancelled television series to have a second life on streaming. Surprisingly, however, this cancelled USA series ended four years ago and it’s still managed to break the Netflix Top 10. It’s now one of Netflix’s biggest shows on the streaming platform and it’s been keeping up for weeks now.
As noted on FlixPatrol, the USA series Suits has rotated on the Netflix Top 10 for weeks now. It’s an impressive feat for the legal drama. Especially after so much time has passed since the series ended.
In fact, Suits is said to have been viewed for more than 2.3 billion minutes. This makes the legal drama the top-viewed title on any service. And, again, it’s been keeping these numbers up for weeks. It goes to show why residuals are also such an important topic right now, especially for streaming.
For those unfamiliar with the premise of the series:
“While running from a drug deal gone bad, Mike Ross, a brilliant young college-dropout, slips into a job interview with one of New York City’s best legal closers, Harvey Specter. Tired of cookie-cutter law school grads, Harvey takes a gamble by hiring Mike on the spot after he recognizes his raw talent and photographic memory.”
The cast of the series includes Patrick J. Adams, Gabriel Macht, Rick Hoffman, Sarah Rafferty, Meghan Markle, Dulé Hill, and Katherine Heigl.
Suits ran for nine seasons with 134 episodes from June 23, 2011 to September 25, 2019. It’s an incredible run and even more incredible that it still continues to resonate with viewers. The series also sparked a short-lived spin-off series, titled Pearson, which ran for one season in 2019.
Stay tuned to ScreenGeek for any additional Netflix updates or news as we have it. For now, fans can view Suits on both Netflix and the streaming service Peacock.
