From 'Ally McBeal' to 'White Collar,' here are a handful of shows that have just as much drama as 'Suits'
USA Network’s Suits continues to make waves long after its finale aired in 2019.
Originally released in 2011, the legal drama followed Mike Ross (Patrick J. Adams), who lands a job as a lawyer without ever having attended law school. As the series continues, the show follows Mike and his coworkers as he tries to keep his big secret under wraps.
With an intriguing plot and talented cast, including Meghan Markle before she became the Duchess of Sussex, the show was a smash hit during its nine-season run, with numerous award nominations.
From legal dramas to workplace shows, here are 10 titles you should watch if you’re a fan of Suits.
If one of your favorite parts of Suits is the romantic entanglements that develop in the workplace, the '90s megahit Ally McBeal is right for you. Originally released in 1997, the drama follows a young lawyer (played by Calista Flockhart) who winds up working at a firm with her ex-boyfriend. As it turns out, she has never gotten over him, but he's now married to someone else.
The Good Wife
Much like Suits, The Good Wife really puts the “drama” in legal drama as defense attorney Alicia Florrick (Julianna Margulies) returns to the workplace following her husband’s very public sex and political corruption scandal. Also like Suits, the series has a stacked ensemble cast, including Matt Czuchry, Josh Charles, Alan Cumming, Matthew Goode, Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Christine Baranski, (the latter of which latter got her own spinoff series titled The Good Fight).
Can’t get enough of the ambitious Suits characters working their way up the career ladder? You’ll likely get a kick out of HBO’s drama series Industry, which follows a group of young graduates competing for permanent positions at one of London’s most prestigious investment banks. Though the show only has two seasons so far, it’s already been renewed for a third, with Game of Thrones alum Kit Harington set to join the show.
Much like Suits, Damages puts a mentor-mentee relationship at the forefront of the series. Originally released in 2007, the series follows the brilliant lawyer Patty Hewes (Glenn Close) and her protégée Ellen Parsons (Rose Byrne) as they take on new cases each season.
The Lincoln Lawyer
Netflix’s original series The Lincoln Lawyer, based on the books of Michael Connelly, the series follows a Los Angeles defense attorney who unconventionally runs his practice out of his Lincoln Town Car. The storylines and humor will feel familiar to Suits fans.
Though White Collar is a police procedural, the USA Network series has many similarities to Suits, namely the working relationship between Mike Ross (Adams) and Harvey Specter (Gabriel Macht). Starring Matt Bomer and Tim DeKay, the series follows a cunning con artist (Bomer) who teams up with an FBI agent (DeKay) to catch criminals in exchange for a shorter sentence.
If you get a thrill out of the high-stakes drama on Suits, Billions should be the next show on your binge-watch list. Also set in New York, the Showtime series follows the ongoing conflict between hedge fund manager Bobby Axelrod (Damian Lewis) and U.S. attorney Chuck Rhoades (Paul Giamatti).
Like Suits, Succession had fans riveted throughout its four-season run thanks to its talented cast and dramatic storylines. Following the Roy family as they fight for control of their father’s company in the midst of his faltering health, the comedy-drama is sure to keep you entertained. Plus, the quiet luxury style of Siobhan "Shiv" Roy (played by Sarah Snook) will satisfy fashion fans of Suits’ Rachel Zane (Markle).
Looking for another thrilling legal drama with a fun ensemble cast? ABC’s The Practice is about to become your next binge-watch. Originally released in 1997, the series revolves around partners and associates at a Boston law firm and their ongoing conflict between legal ethics and personal morality.
After you tune into all eight seasons of The Practice, you can watch its spinoff Boston Legal, which continues the story of many of the original characters. Though Boston Legal only ran for five seasons, it received just as much critical acclaim as its predecessor with 26 Primetime Emmy Awards nominations.
