I’m obsessed with shows about lawyers! Series like Law & Order, How to Get Away with Murder, The Good Wife, Drop Dead Diva are so enjoyable. My obsession might be a result of some subconscious sadness that I didn’t go to law school. In any event, I choose to live vicariously through these awesome shows. One of my absolute faves is Suits on USA. The Harvey (Gabriel Macht)/Mike (Patrick J. Adams) bromance is wonderful, I love that my Mike-Rachel (Meghan Markle) ship is sailing, and (even with the way season 4’s midseason finale ended) I still enjoy Louis Litt (Rick Hoffman).
Yesterday, USA/NBC Universal announced that Suits will be back in early 2015, and we got some insight into a new character and plot-line in the second half of season 4:
Troian Bellisario (“Pretty Little Liars”) has been set as a guest star on USA Network’s top rated and critically-acclaimed original drama SUITS when season four returns in early 2015.
Bellisario will play Claire, an idealistic law student and volunteer at a social services law clinic. Mike (SAG® Award nominee Patrick J. Adams, “Luck”) meets Claire in a flashback to his days as a bike messenger. Ultimately they begin dating, but things get complicated when Mike tries to help with one of Claire’s cases. The result causes him to question the trajectory of his life.
Spencer Hastings is one of my favorite characters from Pretty Little Liars, so I’m looking forward to seeing Troian on Suits! It’ll be interesting to see whether Claire/Mike’s relationship will take place strictly in flashbacks or if Mike might run into her during his work and Pearson/Specter/(maybe Litt…).
You can watch full episodes of Suits at USA Network’s online site, so make sure you’re caught up for when it returns!
