USA announced today that the mid-season premiere of Suits will fall on Wednesday January 27 at 10/9c.

The show returns with 6 new episodes that will round out the fifth season, picking up on events in the wake of Mike’s arrest and Harvey’s departure from the firm.

USA Network teases that in the wake of his arrest for conspiracy to commit fraud, Mike (Patrick J. Adams) finds himself at the center of an investigation – led by a ruthless government prosecutor, Assistant US Attorney Anita Gibbs (new recurring guest star Leslie Hope) – that threatens to bring down the whole firm.

Harvey (Gabriel Macht), having resigned from the firm in order to protect it, must tread lightly if he’s going to help Mike, or incur the wrath of Charles Forstman (returning guest star Eric Roberts).

Together with Jessica (Gina Torres)  and Louis (Rick Hoffman), Harvey must figure out how to build a defense for Mike, knowing full well that he’s guilty of the crime for which he stands accused.

Meanwhile, Rachel (Meghan Markle) must come to terms with the fact that her fiancé, and everyone she’s close to, could soon be in prison as Donna (Sarah Rafferty)finds herself at a crossroad.

New characters this season include prosecuting attorney Anita Gibbs (Leslie Hope, “24”) and James Paulsen (Derek McGrath, “Doc”).

Returning characters this season include Trevor (Tom Lipinski, “Labor Day”), Scottie (Abigail Spencer, “Cowboys & Aliens”), Robert Zane (Wendell Pierce, “The Wire”), Jack Soloff (John Pyper-Ferguson, “Drive”), Professor Gerard (Stephen Macht, “The Monster Squad”), Gretchen (Aloma Wright, “Days of Our Lives”), Jeff Malone (DB Woodside, “24”), Sheila (Rachael Harris, “The Hangover”) and Jimmy (Pooch Hall, “The Game”).

From Universal Cable Productions, Suits was created by and is executive produced by Aaron Korsh (“The Deep End”).  Doug Liman (The “Bourne” trilogy), David Bartis (“Covert Affairs”) and Gene Klein (“Covert Affairs”) of Hypnotic along with Anton Cropper (“Fairly Legal”), Daniel Arkin (“90210”) and Chris Downey (“King & Maxwell”) serve as executive producers.
