After nine years and a spin-off series, if the legal drama series ‘Suits’ does indeed return, will Donna and Harvey return with it?
‘Suits’ premiered on USA Network on June 23, 2011, and instantly became television’s favourite legal drama of all time. Originally named ‘A Legal Mind’, the series follows Mike Ross (Patrick J. Adams), a college dropout with a photographic memory. Mike has passed the bar but doesn’t have a law degree, and gives the exam for other students in exchange for money.

- Will Donna be a part of the new season, if there is one?
Mike’s life changes when he unintentionally stumbles into Harvey Specter (played by Gabriel Macht), New York City’s best closer. Harvey hires Mike as his associate, impressed by his brilliant photographic memory, and gives him a second chance at life. The two work together to win cases at their firm Pearson Hardman while maintaining Ross’s secret.
‘Suits’ had a successful nine-year run and even branched out into a spin-off series that premiered alongside the final season. And now, rumours of ‘Suits’ Season 10 being in the works are making rounds. But even if we were to believe the rumours, and the show indeed returns, the question is – Will Donna and Harvey be a part of it?
The show already has a spin-off series
Titled ‘Pearson’, the ‘Suits’ spin-off series is led by Gina Torres who reprises her role as Jessica Pearson. It marks her move from New York City’s high-rise corporate law life to Chicago’s ground-floor dirty politics. Jessica plays the right-hand woman for the mayor (Morgan Spector) as she tries to navigate through politics and corruption.
The first few episodes are somewhat of a slow burn, but they do set the course for a deeper plot. Jessica’s character development is strengthened and it is amazing to see her play an intelligent, bold, and powerful woman. For every ‘Suits’ fan who missed Jessica, she’s the same iron fist in a glove you’ve known her to be!
Original stars from ‘Suits’, Gabriel Macht and Rick Hoffman made guest appearances in the series as well! The cast also includes Simon Kassianides, Bethany Joy Lenz, Chantel Riley, Isabel Arraiza, and Eli Goree.
Sadly, ‘Pearson’ got cancelled after a single season because of its inability to capture the audience interest like its parent show did. It averaged about half the same-day audience and, surprisingly, went on to become USA Network’s lowest-rated original scripted series. ‘Pearson’ didn’t get the renewal fans would’ve wanted, but will ‘Suits’ get one?
Theories and plots a potential season can explore!
After Jessica, Mike, and Rachel (Meghan Markle) exited season 7, the showrunners decided to continue for 2 more seasons. Their move was brave, and whether it was a good decision is still debatable, but there’s so much that happened. Now, we can hardly imagine the series without the last 2 seasons because they finally brought one couple together!
That’s right! Seasons 8 and 9 saw one of television’s most popular ‘will they, won’t they’ couples get together! It was a dream come true for Donna (Sarah Gray Rafferty) and Harvey (or ‘Darvey’ as the internet prefers) fans. After years of stolen glances and flirting, denying feelings for each other, and finally accepting them, Donna and Harvey are together!
Viewers even saw them get married in season 9 before they make the shocking announcement of leaving the firm. Harvey and Donna decide to move to Seattle and work with Mike and Rachel, promoting the idea that Harvey and Mike were teaming up again.
Presently, the possibility of ‘Suits’ Season 10 happening is nothing more than a rumour, but fans are still hopeful. Whether the series is renewed is in the hands of its creators, and fans have suggested that the spin-off ‘Pearson’ can definitely get a renewal if Patrick J. Adams, Gabriel Macht, and Sarah Gray Rafferty become series regulars! But if there is indeed a new season, will Donna make a come-back?
Will Donna be a part of the new season, if there is one?
Donna finally got the life she deserves, with Harvey in Seattle. We wish there was a ‘Suits’ reunion episode that followed Harvey, Donna, Mike, and Rachel’s life at their new firm. Seeing Mike and Harvey solve cases together again would bring back memories of the early seasons too!
But the final season of ‘Suits’ tied all loose ends and gave fans the ending they dreamed of. While ‘Suits’ Season 10 would certainly be successful, thanks to its large fanbase, will the cast be up for it? They’ve all dedicated nine years to the series, and it’s hard to imagine if they’ll be back.
If ‘Suits’ Season 10 does happen in the future, we hope it follows the quartet’s life in Seattle! ‘Suits’ became popular because of its characters, and wouldn’t be as much of a success without its most-loved ones! But especially Donna Paulsen – the legal secretary with the sarcastic remarks who brings life to the show!
