Suits LA, the spinoff of Aaron Korsh’s popular Los Angeles legal drama, is set to start filming in March after NBCUniversal ordered a pilot. The show is officially back in action after its LA spin-off was optioned for a pilot by NBC, with cameras set to begin rolling at the end of March in Vancouver. If the pilot becomes a series, it could premiere at some point in the 2024-25 television season.

Victoria Mahoney will be directing the episode, but there are no casting details yet, not even for its lead, Ted Black. The only thing we know about him is that he is a former federal prosecutor from New York who has reinvented himself representing powerful clients in Los Angeles. “His law firm is in crisis and, to survive, he must accept a role that he has despised throughout his career,” reads the slogan. “Ted is surrounded by an all-star group of characters who test their loyalty to both Ted and each other as they can’t help but mix their personal and professional lives. All of this happens while slowly unraveling the events from years ago that led Ted to leaving behind everything and everyone I loved.”

Suits debuted in 2011 on USA Network and aired for nine seasons until 2019. The series saw a huge surge in popularity last year after the first eight seasons were added to Netflix, breaking streaming records by seeing Mike Ross (Patrick J. Adams), a college dropout, worked his way into a New York law firm.

Korsh is writing the new version and will executive produce alongside Dave Bartis, Doug Liman and Gene Klein, who worked on the original series. Director Mahoney also executive produces the pilot.
