Order in the courtroom! The USA Network legal drama Suits hasn't aired in over four years, but no one seems to be able to stop talking about it lately. It's not hard to understand the charming procedural's broad appeal. It's got a winning tone and a likable cast of characters — and, yes, now it will live on in our cultural memory for introducing so many fans to Meghan Markle

Created by Aaron KorshSuits starred Gabriel Macht as the arrogant but charming lawyer Harvey Specter and Patrick J. Adams as his brilliant but fraudulent protégé, Mike Ross. The series ran for nine seasons and 134 episodes between 2011 and 2019, making it USA's longest-running original scripted series. Whether you just binged it all for the first time because it popped up on Netflix or you've been all in since day one, you might be looking for another show like Suits to keep you busy.

Another show from USA Network's "Blue Sky" era that was set in New York, White Collarshould probably be your first stop after Suits, as it feels both tonally similar to Suits and is anchored by another strong relationship featuring a mentor and mentee. Created by Jeff Eastin, the series stars Tim DeKay as FBI Special Agent Peter Burke and Matt Bomer as the highly skilled forger and con artist Neal Caffrey, who becomes Burke's informant and helps him stop white collar crimes. Their unconventional relationship provides the foundation for a story in which the characters are constantly escaping situations they probably have no business escaping, and like Suits, the rest of the cast is also incredibly strong, making the show an easy and pleasurable binge.

The Good Wife and The Good Fight

If we're being honest, the legal aspects were never the best part of Suits — they provided a solid backdrop for the much stronger character-driven narratives and acted as a backbone for the show — but if you're looking for an excellent legal drama with even better characters to binge after Suits, cue up CBS's The Good Wife, which stars Emmy winner Julianna Margulies as Alicia Florrick, the wife of the Cook County state's attorney who returns to work as a lawyer after her husband is involved in a major scandal. Once you finish the show, go ahead and move on to its spin-off, the equally great Paramount+ drama The Good Fight, which follows Christine Baranski's Diane Lockhart.



Donal Logue and Michael Raymond-James, Terriers


The bromance between Mike and Harvey was the bedrock of Suits, and if that's what interests you, FX's short-livedTerriers, about two best friends and small-time amateur private eyes, should be your next watch. Created by Ted Griffin, the series stars Donal Logue and Michael Raymond-James as Hank and Britt — a recovering alcoholic and former cop, and a former thief, respectively — as they try to stay on the straight and narrow while taking down the man and fighting for the little guy (something Mike would definitely have supported) in a sun-drenched Southern California town. It's a crime the show only lasted one season, but that also means it's a quick binge.


Dule Hill and James Roday, Psych

Another USA series that overlapped with Suits,Psychalso features a man lying about his credentials at the heart of its narrative. James Roday Rodriguez's Shawn Spencer is exceptionally observant and, like Mike, able to recall a bizarre amount of information with incredible detail. But instead of using his skills to become a lawyer, Shawn, who struggles with commitment and doesn't have nearly as much ambition as Mike does, uses his talent to help solve cases for the Santa Barbara Police Department as a so-called psychic detective. The series, which has a great sense of humor, also features a memorable bromance between Shawn and his best friend and reluctant partner, Gus (Dulé Hill). Psych was basically Suits without suits before Suits was Suits. It ran for eight seasons and has spawned three TV movies.


Hugh Laurie, House

Suits and Fox's long-running medical drama Houseshare surprisingly similar bones. Playing the Harvey role is Dr. Gregory House (Hugh Laurie), a highly intelligent man who is exceptionally good at his job and knows he's good at his job but is not a particularly sympathetic or even well liked man because of his abrasiveness. Stepping in as the show's version of Jessica (Gina Torres) is Dean of Medicine Lisa Cuddy (Lisa Edelstein), a powerful, high-ranking woman who is adept at managing her best but most complicated asset and regularly has to go to great lengths to protect him or fix problems he's created. As she and House are also locked in a battle of will-they-or-won't-they, Cuddy also plays the role of the show's Donna (Sarah Rafferty), though obviously no one is actually capable of being Donna.



Peter Hermann and Sutton Foster, Younger

TV Land

Suits' very foundation was built on a lie, and the show milked plenty of drama from the threat of people in the office and larger legal community finding out that Mike wasn't really a lawyer. Youngerdoes something similar in the world of publishing. The dramedy, which began on TV Land and moved to Paramount+ for its final season, stars Sutton Foster as Liza, a 40-year-old woman who, after taking years off to raise her daughter, lies about her age to land a job in publishing. But that's not all that Younger and Suits have in common: There is also plenty of office drama, an interoffice romance, and a slick focus on fashion. Jessica Pearson might not wear Diana's (Miriam Shor) statement necklaces, but she definitely would respect them.

Mad Men

Before you roll your eyes, hear me out: Suits and Mad Men actually share very similar DNA. The Emmy-winning AMC drama follows a cocky, confident, exceptionally well dressed man (Jon Hamm) who works in a Manhattan office, has a well developed relationship with a mentee (Elisabeth Moss' Peggy Olson), and frequently imbibes whiskey. There is also a beautiful redhead who is irreplaceable to the firm (Christina Hendricks' Joan Holloway). Although Harvey and Don's occupations differ — swap in lawyer for advertising exec — and the time periods don't line up, both men are excellent at their jobs. You could argue there are similarities with Mike as well, as Don is also living a lie and waiting for his past to catch up with him.
