A-list courtroom drama Although the Suits era has come to an end, the march of television continues unabated. These shows are sure to please any Suits fan!
After nine seasons, the legal drama Suits created by Aaron Korsh has come to an end. The final episode of season nine aired on July 17, 2019. The USA Network’s Suit ended its nine-year run in 2011 after building a devoted fan base. Patrick J. Adams and Meghan Markle left after seven seasons but the show managed to return with one of its strongest seasons.
Matthew Wilkinson’s most recent update was on April 26th, 2017: Suits has come to an end, and viewers will no doubt be on the lookout for something new to sink their teeth into now that the show is over. As much wit, humor, and intensely dramatic scenes as possible.
The television industry is flourishing, which means that Suits fans have plenty of shows to choose from. Numerous legal dramas share elements with one another, as do those set in entirely different locales but still resembling one another in some way. As a result, now that Suits has concluded, we’ll reveal a few more shows on this list that are perfect for Suits fans.
15. Better Call Saul
BETTER CALL SAUL is a Breaking Bad prequel series created by Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould. “Saul Goodman” is based on the life of Jimmy McGill, a con artist turned small-time lawyer. For the fifth season of the show, it has received widespread critical acclaim.
Suits fans may enjoy Better Call Saul’s clever dialogue, humorous antics and moral ambiguity as much as Suits fans. In a delightfully brutal and comic way, it will give you an entirely new perspective on the legal system. No matter what your personal taste, you won’t be disappointed by this film’s quality.
14. House Of Cards
House of Cards, despite the controversies that surrounded it later on, was a gripping show that drew viewers into the world of politics. Despite the show’s focus on politics, it’s still a great show for Suits fans to watch.
It has all the suspense of Suits, with a lot of behind-the-scenes skulduggery and a strong focus on interpersonal relationships. Romance, death, and some major betrayals all play a role in this story, which is full of unexpected turns.
13. Boston Legal
Boston Legal is one of the best legal shows on television and a strong recommendation for Suits fans. Boston Legal is a spin-off of The Practice starring James Spader and William Shatner as Alan Shore and Danny Crane, respectively, and was created by David E. Kelley. Crane, Poole & Schmidt is the legal firm where they work.
Boston Legal is a show that will tick a lot of the boxes on any Suits fan’s wish list, thanks to Spader and Shatner’s characters’ excellent chemistry. Legal acumen, dry humor, and interesting characters—what more could you want?
In comparison to Suits, this is a British television show that gives off an entirely different vibe. The plot of Silk centers on two brilliant female lawyers who aspire to work for Queen Elizabeth II. There is a fierce competition between them for the role and they don’t mind undercutting each other to get it.
It’s a gripping show that isn’t quite as flashy and over-the-top as Suits, which has big cases that always work out. Instead, it’s a little grimier, but no less compelling, thanks to a cast full of interesting characters and the intriguing premise of being pushed to work for the Royal Family.
Brian Koppelman, David Levien, and Andrew Ross Sorkin’s Showtime drama series, Billions, focuses on ruthless financial warfare between wealthy people from all walks of life, as depicted in the show. Chuck Rhoades (Paul Giamatti), a US Attorney for the Southern District of New York, and Bobby Axelrod (Damien Lewis), an ambitious billionaire, are the show’s main attractions.
Billions has become one of television’s best dramas thanks to a star-studded award-winning cast, outstanding performances, and enthralling plotlines. If you’re a fan of the show’s witty one-liners, you should check out Billions.
But we think we have a strong case for Castle. Even though Castle is a police procedural that relies heavily on tired genre tropes, it is one of those shows that prove that even rehashed ideas can feel fresh with enough charm, intrigue, and creativeness. You can expect witty dialogue and sarcasm from the script, which Suits fans will appreciate.
To catch criminals, Richard Castle (Nathan Fillion) and Kate Beckett of the New York City Police Department (Stana Katic) rely on Castle’s unconventional methods. The show’s witty humor and compelling drama are largely derived from the chemistry between the show’s main characters. For something light-hearted but still interesting, Castle is the show for you.
9. How To Get Away With Murder
Consider picking up a copy of How To Get Away With Murder if you’re in the market for a new book to read. Shonda Rimes and Peter Nowalk produced this crime/legal thriller. Law professor Annalise Keating (portrayed by Viola Davis) and her aspiring law students become entangled in an elaborate murder plot in the series.
For those who enjoy morally ambiguous characters and suspenseful stories, How to Get Away with Murder is a must. Suits is a great show, but it doesn’t have the same witty humor.
8. Making A Murderer
It’s a good idea for viewers to check out Making A Murderer, a documentary series on the subject. It differs from Suits in that it is based on real events and depicts the trial and all the evidence that was used in the case.
Even though it’s quite different, it gives Suits fans who enjoyed the legal aspects of the show a glimpse into the courtroom of something that is real and legitimate. These sections of Suits are fascinating to watch because they don’t have the glitz and glamour that the show adds.
7. The People v. O.J. Simpson American Crime Story
Using a real-life case as the basis for a television show is an excellent way to mix reality and fiction. The one-season television series follows the famous O.J. Simpson trial, but it is not a documentary. Instead, it’s a show that’s acted out with a lot of drama thrown in.
Of course, the story itself is so dramatic that it didn’t need much to make it appealing to an audience. However, it is a wonderful film that will leave viewers pondering the decisions made and making their own judgment calls throughout the course of the film.
6. Mad Men
One of AMC’s most popular shows, Mad Men, takes place in the 1960s and focuses on an advertising agency as well as the lives of its main cast members. Even though Don Draper (Jon Hamm) is the show’s main focus as a master manipulator, financial wizard, and womanizer, the show thrives because of its fascinating ensemble cast.
Mad Men is widely regarded as one of the greatest television shows of all time because of its fascinating, morally ambiguous and flawed characters, top-notch writing, acting, and historical accuracy. Suits fans will find many similarities between the two, from the business environment to the characters and witty dialogue.
5. The Good Wife
There has been widespread critical acclaim for The Good Wife, CBS’s legal/political drama created by Robert and Michelle King, for its compelling mix of legal and personal drama. As Alicia Florrick returns to the workforce as a litigator in order to support her two children following her husband’s corruption and the scandal that resulted in him being imprisoned, the series follows her story. Thought-provoking storytelling was developed over time because of this simple premise.
For its complex storylines that lasted the entire season (which isn’t what most CBS shows are known for), the show received high marks from reviewers. Fans of Suits will enjoy the show’s mix of personal and legal drama and the season-long arcs, which follow a similar format.
When it comes to the success of the show Suits, chemistry and charisma were key factors. Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, who plays the lead role in Ballers, is one of the most charismatic actors in the business. The show’s concept is original and entertaining, and it’s a good mix of comedy and drama.
As a former NFL player who has since retired, Johnson portrays a successful manager for the sport’s current crop of stars. Any Suits fan will appreciate the amount of drama and how it forces the show to adapt to new situations, which keeps the show fresh.
3. The West Wing
“The West Wing” is considered one of the greatest and most influential television shows of all time by critics. With a focus on the President, the First Lady, the President’s senior staff, and his advisers, the Emmy Award-winning series featured an all-star cast to portray federal government positions.
The West Wing is a must-see for Suits fans thanks to its fast-paced and witty scripts and the now-famous “walk-and-talk” that it developed. In spite of its political focus, the brilliantly written dialogue and compelling characters will be enough to keep you watching.
2. White Collar
Our strongest recommendation is White Collar. Like Suits, it is not a legal drama, but has a similar vibe. When it comes to White Collar’s success, it is a lot likeSuits in that it relies on the budding relationship between its unconventional partners, NealCaffrey and Peter Burke.
Furthermore, White Collar has a similar brand of clever humor and intelligent writing, along with a cast of fascinating characters, the perfect mix between procedural and personal drama, as well as a lot of heart. White Collaris is a must-see if you enjoy Suits because of its well-developed characters and their relationships.
Pearson, a spin-off of Suits starring Gina Torres (aka Jessica Pearson). As one show ends, the next one starts. The premiere dates of Suits and Pearson have recently been combined.
Jessica relocated to Chicago from New York and the firm in season 6. On Jessica Pearson’s new life in Chicago, Pearson will focus. While leading a law firm in New York City, Jessica will have a very different experience when she takes on the dirty world of Chicago politics. In anticipation of Jessica’s return, we’re eager to see what Aaron Korsh has in store for us.
As a freelance writer, Irina Curovic aspires to write about everything from television shows to anime to books to music, in no particular order. A job that allows her to spend her days thinking, talking, and writing about the things she cares most about has been a wonderful experience for her. On the rare occasion that she’s not working on articles for CBR and Screen Rant, this nerdy alien can be found curled up with a good book or watching an old episode of one of her favorite shows.
