Honestly, we have been expecting renewal since the show was solid in its ratings during the current season. The seventh season's premiere has garnered 1.398 million viewers with a 0.36 key demo (P18-49). Though this figure was over 24 percent lower compared to those of the previous season, this drop in the viewing audience has not affected the decision on renewal. Of course, 1.4 million is 3.3 times less than the viewership of the show's Pilot. Nonetheless, this figure is appropriate for a seventh season.
Perhaps the show's response from critics and viewers reflects its popularity much better. On Rotten Tomatoes, the seventh season of Suits has a score of 6.25/10 and 83% approval rating among critics, while the viewers have rated the current season at 4.2/5/83%. On Metacritic, Suits Season 7 has a score of 6.7/10 among the target audience. Meanwhile, the series' rating on IMDb is still pretty high, 8.6/10 > 292,000 votes.
As a result, Suits managed to keep steady ratings and positive reception within seven seasons. Therefore, the decision by USA Network wasn't a surprise for us. According to Chris McCumber, "Suits remains one of USA Network's most beloved and popular series." Aaron Korsh also thanked Patrick and Meghan for their participating in the series. He has noted beside that "they are superb human beings who will always be beloved members of the Suits family."
