‘Suits’ Season 5 Update: Charles Barkley Joins Guest Cast as Harvey Specter’s Client

Harvey Specter will get a visit from his long-time client in the upcoming season of “Suits” and he’s none other than Charles Barkley. The 11-time NBA champion, who now works as a TNT NBA Analyst, will be appearing in a later episode in Suits Season 5.

“Suits” will premiere its fifth season on Wednesday, June 24 at 9:00 p.m. on USA Network. Barkley will drop in on Pearson Specter Litt to help Harvey patch things up with a firm partner.  The episode with Barkley will air later in the first half of the season.

But here’s the official synopsis to the Season 5 premiere, as outlined in the press release.

In the season five premiere, Harvey (Gabriel Macht) has difficulty adjusting to changes around the office, which affects his ability to do his work. Donna (Sarah Rafferty) must acclimate to working for Louis (Rick Hoffman), who’s certain it’s only a matter of time before she returns to Harvey. Mike (SAG Award Nominee, Patrick J. Adams) and Rachel (Meghan Markle) must decide how and when to share their big news, but their excitement about their future together will take a back seat to Harvey and Mike’s latest case. And an up-and-coming partner makes his presence known to Jessica (Gina Torres) , confronting her about whether Harvey’s way of doing business is beneficial to the firm.

Season 4 of “Suits” ended with over 3.4 million total viewers between the ages of 25-54 and has had good feedback in its live +7 viewership. The network will have a marathon on the most recent season leading up to the premiere of Season 5 on June 20. The show is also available for streaming on Amazon Prime and on www.usanetwork.com/SUITS.
