Suits seasons 1-8 was released on Netflix on June 17, and old fans and new viewers immediately started watching the popular legal drama series. In fact, since its release, it’s been ranked on the streamer’s top 10 TV show list, and it doesn’t look like it’ll be coming off the list anytime soon.

But since it’s been some time since Netflix dropped the show, many people have already finished all eight seasons or are getting close to finishing. Of course, the next step would be to find where to watch Suits season 9. But after watching the last season, you’re probably going to be looking for similar content to watch.

Luckily, our favorite streamer carries several other shows like Suits that we believe you’ll enjoy watching. And you don’t have to worry about finding these shows because we did the hard work for you. Below, we shared some of the best Netflix shows like Suits currently streaming on the platform. We even took it a step further and shared two Netflix shows that aren’t bad per se, but just aren’t that similar to Suits or ended too early. We would recommend skipping over those for now.

Netflix shows like Suits

Here’s a list of recommended Netflix shows like Suits to watch, including two you can skip.

Netflix shows - Suits

The Lincoln Lawyer

Watch! If you love Suits then you’ll definitely love The Lincoln Lawyer. It’s another great legal drama series. Based on Michael Connelly’s The Lincoln Lawyer book series, The Lincoln Lawyer stars Manuel Garcia-Rulfo as criminal defense lawyer Mickey Haller, who runs his law practice out of the back seat of his Lincoln Navigator. Viewers watch as Mickey takes on LA’s biggest and smallest cases.

There are two seasons available to stream on Netflix so far, with a third season currently up in the air. If you want to help the show’s chances of being renewed for a third season, you might want to get started on the series now.

Anatomy of a Scandal /

Anatomy of a Scandal

Watch! Don’t you just love a good legal thriller? That’s what Anatomy of a Scandal is. It’s based on the best-selling book of the same name by Sarah Vaughan and follows a powerful and influential British couple, Sophie and James Whitehouse, whose lives become threatened when a scandalous secret comes to light.

Sophie and James were living a seemingly happy life until James walks out on the marriage and has an affair with an aide. When this secret is made public, Sophie and James’s lives are turned upside down but they vow to figure it out together. Well, that’s until the aide accuses James of rape and Sophie is left wondering if she truly knows her husband.

Sadly, Anatomy of a Scandal is a limited series so it won’t be returning for a second season. However, the good news is that the story wraps up within the first season.

Partner Track

Skip! I know you’re probably wondering why we put Partner Track on the skip list. Well, it has nothing to do with the show itself. The show is great, in our opinion. The reason why we think you should skip this show is because it got canceled. After only one season, Netflix decided to pull the plug. We would hate for you to start watching this show to only find out that you won’t get to see the story continue in a second season.

Partner Track follows Ingrid Yun, a first-generation Korean-American and ambitious young lawyer who is determined to climb the ladder at a prestigious New York City law firm. While fighting to make junior partner, Ingrid navigates a love triangle while also figuring out how to balance friends and family expectations.

The Diplomat - Netflix shows - Suits

The Diplomat

Watch! Anything starring Keri Russell, sign me up! Russell makes her Netflix debut in The Diplomat. It centers around career diplomat, Kate Wyler, who finds herself struggling to balance her new position as US Ambassador to the United Kingdom and her failing marriage to fellow career diplomat Hal Wyler. Rufus Sewell plays the role of Hal. David Gyasi, Ali Ahn, and Rory Kinnear also star in the series.

The first season was a huge success for Netflix, so the streamer quickly renewed the series for a second season just a month after its premiere. After you finish watching the first season, be sure to consistently check out our The Diplomat season 2 release updates article because we constantly update it with any new information announced about the second season.

You Don’t Know Me

Skip! This is another great Netflix show, and it was hard for us to even put it on the skip list. But if you’re looking for something to watch that is more similar to SuitsYou Don’t Know Me is not the show you should be watching.

It follows a young man named Hero, who is accused of murder with all the evidence pointing towards him being guilty. Determined to prove his innocence to the court, Hero chooses to exercise his right to tell his own story, in his own words.

We wouldn’t say completely skip over You Don’t Know Me, but save it for another day. Wait until you finish watching all of our recommended Netflix shows and then make your way to this courtroom show.

Extraordinary Attorney Woo

Watch! The best Korean legal drama on Netflix would have to be Extraordinary Attorney Woo. It follows Woo Young-woo, a highly intelligent rookie lawyer with autism as she tackles challenging cases in the courtroom at a top law firm. Well-known South Korean actress Park Eun-bin stars in the leading role of Woo Young-woo. Kang Tae-oh, Kang Ki-young, Jeon Bae-soo, Baek Ji-won, Ha Yoon-kyung, Joo Jong-hyuk, Jin Kyung, and many others are also in the cast.

Luckily, you don’t have to worry about this show not returning for a second installment because an Extraordinary Attorney Woo season 2 has already been confirmed. There aren’t many details about the upcoming season yet, but we’ll definitely keep you updated.
