Suits Season 9 Netflix Addition Confirmation

Netflix has been one of the streaming homes for Suits in the United States since the Summer of 2023. Although the series arrived on Netflix US for the first time, it didn’t see the entire collection of the show added. Season 9 remains away from Netflix, but at the ATX Festival, it was announced the new season would join Netflix US in July 2024.

Note: If you’re living outside the United States, this article does not apply to you. That’s because season 9 of Suits is streaming on Netflix and has been for a number of years.

What’s on Netflix was the first to report that Netflix US would be picking up multiple seasons of the hit USA Network show back in May 2023. At the time, we suggested that all seasons of Suits would be headed to the service, but come June 17th, we only saw seasons 1 through 8 added.

Since its addition to Netflix US, Suits has consistently ranked in the Netflix TV top 10s. It spent four weeks in the global top 10 charts, and according to the latest Netflix Engagement Report, the show had 1.5 billion viewing hours throughout 2023, equating to 144.10 million views.

Why wasn’t season 9 of Suits added to Netflix?

It comes down to rights issues with an existing deal. Up until Netflix was streaming the show, you could only watch Suits on Prime Video and Peacock.

The existing deal prohibiting season 9 from coming to Netflix is with Prime Video, which was the streaming home for the entire catalog until Netflix picked up seasons 1-8. Prime Video notably saw seasons 1-8 leave the service in July 2023, with only season 9 available there. It’s almost certainly the case, then, that Netflix cannot stream season 9 of Suits while it’s still on Prime Video.

Now, a year after the July 2023 removal of the first eight seasons, season 9 is set to leave, and Netflix TUDUM confirmed that it will drop on July 1st, 2024.

The ninth and final season of USA Network’s hit legal drama (which arrived in international regions weekly while it aired) focuses on the evolved dynamics at Zane Specter Litt Wheeler Williams. The firm, once a powerhouse, now faces unprecedented uncertainty after Robert Zane (Wendell Pierce) sacrifices himself to the Bar Association, taking the fall to protect Harvey Specter (Gabriel Macht).

How long will Suits be on Netflix US?

With Netflix only licensing the show, how long can we expect the show to be available?

What’s on Netflix can exclusively reveal that Netflix acquired the show for an initial two-year window, meaning it’ll be staying on Netflix at least through July 1st, 2025 (we should’ve spotted that this coincides with the season 9 release!).

Once that period is up, Universal Television and Netflix will strike a new deal. This removal date also applies to international Netflix regions like the United Kingdom.
