Despite the fact that USA seems to have undergone a brutal run of cancellations in 2012 -- including everything from 'Common Law' to 'Fairly Legal,' dropping 'Political Animals,' and the likely upcoming ends of 'Burn Notice' and 'Psych' -- we're glad to have 'Suits' coming back in the mix with plenty of years to come. The show returns to the second season on Thursday, January 17, so how would you like an all-new look at the back half of 'Suits' season 2?
Well, not every series can weather the storm. With the first portion of the fall season mostly over, the networks have begun plotting out mid-season and other returns, while disposing of series that haven't quite made a dent in their target audiences. We recently saw NBC set its winter line-up, minus a few items on our to-watch list, but what of USA? When can we expect 'Suits,' 'White Collar' and 'Necessary Roughness'? And has 'Common Law' been left off the schedule for good?
'Suits' fans, don't start dressing casually just yet. Following its wildly successful second season on USA, the Gabriel Macht/Patrick J. Adams legal drama 'Suits' has officially been renewed for a third season to air in the summer of 2013. Still, 'Suits' isn't the first USA drama to be renewed for an additional season, nor is it the last of the show's on the network's plate at the moment, so does that mean bad news for 'Necessary Roughness,' and the other legal/political dramas? Plus, how many episodes can 'Suits' fans expect?
In what might be one of the final nails in MTV's critically-acclaimed, yet surprisingly-cancelled indie comedy 'I Just Want My Pants Back,' it would seem that one of its leads is trading in 'Pants' for 'Suits.' Actress Elisabeth Hower has just picked up a recurring gig on USA's hit series, one that may preclude any possibility of 'Pants' being revived from cancellation. But if Hower won't be putting on 'Pants' anymore, who will she play on USA?
