Patrick J. Adams is nostalgic for the days of “Suits,” just as the USA Network series hits a new wave of viewership on Netflix.
The actor, who stars as legal consultant-turned Mike Ross, shared a collection of old photos from the set to Instagram on Monday. “I miss my friends,” he captioned a photo of co-stars Sarah Rafferty and Meghan Markle.
He posted more black-and-white photos of Markle, Gabriel Macht, Rick Hoffman, Max Toplin and Gina Torres.
“Every single one of them,” he captioned the set of photos.
Adams shared behind-the-scenes photos months after the legal drama began streaming on Netflix and climbing the charts. The series gained wider viewership last summer, during a generally quiet time for TV releases, which was exacerbated this year by writers and actors strikes that halted production of scripted shows and films.
“Suits” originally aired on USA Network from 2011 to 2019.
As the series reaches new audiences, “Suits” creator Aaron Korsh has revisited its origins. In an August interview with hollywood Reporter, Korsh said he came up with “Suits” after the 2007-2008 writers’ strike.
“I only worked for two seasons on the show, and [coming off a strike,] “I didn’t know if I would ever work again,” he said. “I certainly didn’t think in a million years that anyone would buy that offer.”
He also talked about how Markle’s relationship with Prince Harry, and the ensuing drama with the royal family, affected Suits. Korsh said the British royal family did not want her character, Rachel, to say the word “poppycock.”
“So, we had to change it to ‘b-‘ instead of ‘poppycock,’ and I didn’t like it because I told my in-laws.” [poppycock] “He was going to be on the show,” he said.
Despite love, Cyrus He said At X in August, “There’s no #Suits reboot or anything in the works.”
He added: “The strike must end, some networks or broadcasters must reach out, and then we will have to want it collectively. This is not a small matter…”
