The ninth and final season of Suits will premiere Thursday at 12pm IST on Colors Infinity and Colors Infinity HD in India, several hours after it airs in the US. (Suits airs on USA Network at 9pm EDT on Wednesday, which translates to 6:30am IST on Thursday.) Suits season 9 has a shortened run of just 10 episodes, instead of the usual 16, which creator Aaron Korsh explained allows the legal drama to “go out on a high note” in the (American) summer, as opposed to its usual finish in the winter. But the bigger news is that Patrick J. Adams' Mike Ross, after sitting out a season, will guest star on season 9.
Joining him are returning series regulars Gabriel Macht as Harvey Specter, Rick Hoffman as Louis Litt, Sarah Rafferty as Donna Paulsen, Amanda Schull as Katrina Bennett, Dulé Hill as Alex Williams, and Katherine Heigl as Samantha Wheeler. Adams will reprise his role midway through Suits season 9, as he becomes embroiled in a case that will put him toe-to-toe with Harvey and Samantha. So don't expect to see him on this week's season premiere “Everything's Changed” — or the next few weeks, for that matter.
Meanwhile, if you were hoping to also catch the Suits spin-off Pearson — which stars Gina Torres as Jessica Pearson, moving into “the dirty world of Chicago politics” — in India, Colors Infinity won't be airing that, unfortunately. Another disappointing bit of news is that Suits season 8 is still not available on streaming services, so if you were looking to catch up before the start of season 9, you'll have to try your luck elsewhere. For what it's worth, Suits seasons 1-7 are available on both Netflix and Amazon Prime Video.
