NBC’s “Suits: LA” will star Stephen Amell

Suits: LA, a companion series to the popular streaming legal drama that once aired on USA Network, will feature Stephen Amell. If the project is picked up to series, it will be Amell’s first time back in the broadcast industry after eight seasons as the lead character on The CW’s Arrow.

After Suits became a huge hit on Netflix in June 2023 and continued to stream on Peacock, Universal Studio Group’s UCP started working on a spinoff with creator Aaron Korsh in October. Suits: LA’s pilot was ordered by NBC on February 1st, with plans to start filming in Vancouver towards the end of March. This could potentially position the series for a 2024–2025 broadcast slot.

Alongside an old acquaintance, Amell will portray Ted Black, a former New York prosecutor who now runs a criminal and entertainment legal practice out of Los Angeles. “His firm is at a crisis point, and in order to survive he must embrace a role he held in contempt his entire career,” reads the logline for the drama.

Along with fellow Suits alumni David Bartis, Doug Liman, and Gene Klein, Korsh executive produces Suits: LA. The pilot will be exec produced and directed by Victoria Mahoney.

Amell recently wrapped up two seasons of Starz’s pro wrestling drama Heels, which was canceled along with two other shows last fall due to budgetary constraints. Early in the SAG-AFTRA strike, the actor faced backlash for allegedly not supporting the work stoppage. He later explained his comments, saying he supported the organization and its leadership wholeheartedly.

The next sci-fi movie on Netflix that Amell will appear in with his cousin Robbie is Code 8: Part II. Leverage Management, UTA, and Sloane Offer represent Stephen Amell.
